Hansa Heavy Lift has opened a new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, as part of ongoing expansion plans.

The new set up will be managed by Gilberto Lima, who joins from Wasa Projects and Logistics and has three decades of experience in shipping, much of it with a focus on project and heavy lift cargo.

“Hansa Heavy Lift has the largest fleet in the heavy lift market, with ships that are on average only four years old,” said Gilberto Lima, managing director Hansa Heavy Lift Do Brasil. “We are looking forward to introducing our Latin American customers to the benefits of those specialized vessels and the care of our team of experts.”

The Brazil office opened at the beginning of February, just one month after the company’s new Australian branch was set up. Hansa Heavy Lift has expanded to have five offices, in Perth / Australia, Houston / USA, Sao Paulo / Brazil, Singapore and headquarters in Hamburg / Germany as well as eleven exclusive agents worldwide.

“Latin America is an important and vibrant market for the heavy lift industry,” said Joerg Roehl, chief commercial officer of Hansa Heavy Lift. “We are delighted that Gilberto is joining our group and adds his extensive experience within the heavy lift industry to the team."
