Rickmers-Linie has taken over the activities of Nordana Project & Chartering.
The business will continue under the name and brand “NPC” and become an independent division supplementing the Rickmers-Linie segment within the Rickmers Group effective 1 July 2016.
Under the new arrangement, NPC will operate a multipurpose heavy lift fleet worldwide in the size range between 8,000 and 21,000 dwt with a lifting capacity of up to 500 tonnes.
The core fleet will be made up of Nordana’s 12,000 dwt heavy lift vessels and will include Thai flag vessels, Rickmers-Linie said in a statement.
NPC, which has offices in Copenhagen, Bangkok, Singapore and Houston, will be managed by Lars Steen Rasmussen (Copenhagen) and Torben Reinhard (Bangkok) and will be a separate entity within the Rickmers-Linie segment.
