Dania Ship Management is looking to extend ship management capabilities to include dry cargo in a partnership agreement with Clipper Fleet Management, part of the Clipper Group.
The deal, which strengthens the commitment by V.Group, Nordic Tankers and Clipper Group to create a compelling platform for Copenhagen-based ship management solutions, will see the transfer of 28 shore-based employees and around 1,000 seafarers to Dania Ship Management.
With access to V.Group’s global marine services offering and Dania’s ship management platform, the partnership will support Clipper Group to deliver high quality and efficient management of their fleet.
“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,” Carsten Brix Ostenfeldt, chief executive officer, Dania Ship Management, said.
“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,” Ostenfeldt added.
The partnership informed that the transition is expected to be completed shortly.
Dania Ship Management was created in March 2017 on the foundation of Nordic Tankers’ operations in an effort to “support future delivery of quality management to vessels and enable a robust response to the increasing demand towards ship management in this highly specialised sector.”
