Danish chemical tanker operator Nordic Tankers Trading is teaming up with V.Group to invest in a specialist ship management company with a focus on chemical tankers and other specialised vessels
The new company, named Dania Ship Management, will be created utilising Nordic Tankers’ current team and operations and be headed by Nordic Tankers COO and former Thome CEO Carsten Brix Ostenfeldt.
Per Sylvester Jensen, chief executive officer of Nordic Tankers Trading, commented: “With our shared commitment to safety, efficiency and quality, I am confident that with our local market knowledge and V.Group’s global expertise we will be in a strong position to proactively respond to the increasing requirements of the international shipping sector.”
Dania Ship Management will have access to V.Group’s specialist skills including extensive investment in IT platforms, he added.
“Partnering with Nordic Tankers provides V.Group the opportunity to not only offer our specialist ship management expertise in Scandinavia for sophisticated vessels, but also continue to invest in our wider marine services in this region,” said Clive Richardson, chief executive officer of V.Group.
Dania Ship Management will be based in the Nordic Tankers Copenhagen office and incorporated in line with the Danish Tonnage Scheme provisions.
