Klaveness Maritime Agency Inc. (KMAI), part of Norwegian shipping company Torvald Klaveness, informed that KMA in Manila is expanding its crew management services to include two new principals.
The companies in question are Singapore-based Nordic Maritime Crewing Services and India’s Chellaram Shipping.
Crew management company Nordic Maritime Crewing Services will be bringing in two oil-chemical tankers, namely Northsea Rational and Northsea Logic, Klaveness said.
Each of the two vessels has a complement of up to thirteen Filipino crew, who are all to be deployed by KMAI.
Furthermore, KMAI will provide Filipino officers for Chellaram’s managed vessels.
As explained, KMAI plans to work closely with Chellaram’s crew management company in India, Chellaram Shipping Private, in an effort to gradually increase the number of Filipino sea personnel in its fleet.
