Dania Ship Management, the Danish chemical tanker management company formed by V.Group and Nordic Tankers, has formed a partnership with Clipper Fleet Management to extend its capabilities into the dry cargo sector.
Clipper Fleet Management currently has full technical management of 26 bulkers from both Clipper Group and third parties, and the new partnership will see them transfer over to Dania Ship Management along with 28 shore-based employees and close to 1,000 seafarers.
Carsten Brix Ostenfeldt, CEO of Dania Ship Management, commented: “Our aim when we created Dania Ship Management as a partnership agreement between Nordic Tankers and V.Group was to develop a strong Danish ship management solution. Extending our capabilities to include dry cargo management is an important next step and we are delighted to welcome the partnership with Clipper Fleet Management. The two companies will operate under separate Documents of Compliance to ensure we continue to meet the specialist requirements of both tanker and dry cargo clients.”
Peter Norborg, CEO of Clipper Group, added: “This new partnership agreement with Dania Ship Management provides Clipper Fleet Management the perfect platform for future growth – benefiting our clients as well as the organisation and employees – both on shore and at sea. And with both companies having a strong commitment to safety, efficiency and quality, I am confident of a successful transition.”
The transition of Clipper’s fleet and staff to Dania begins immediately.
