Shipping News Feature NORWAY – DENMARK – Global ship management company OSM Maritime Group has been awarded full crew management of Lauritzen Kosan's entire fleet of advanced liquefied tankers, a total of 26 refrigerated ethylene, semi-refrigerated and pressurised gas carriers.

This latest contract ranks as its largest individual win of the year for OSM, bringing the number of vessels the group provides services to far beyond the 500 mark. It also consolidates the company’s position as one of the world’s largest, and leading, crew managers for gas tankers. OSM Managing Director Crew Management Tommy Olofsen, said:

“Lauritzen Kosan is a major player within its niche, and one that is renowned for its high quality, safe and reliable operations. We’re obviously delighted to announce this partnership, which will see us assume crew management duties across their state-of-the-art fleet from December this year.

“Our proven expertise in this specialist sector, combined with our focus on developing crew competence and utilising the most efficient management processes and systems, will help Lauritzen Kosan deliver optimal customer services, and maintain its competitive edge in the marketplace.”

OSM Crew Management in Copenhagen, a key regional base for the company, will coordinate activities for Lauritzen Kosan, which is itself headquartered in the Danish capital. The Manila office of OSM will perform the Crew agency tasks and is currently recruiting additional expert seafarers.

Speaking of the decision to award the contract to OSM Maritime Group, Claus Winter Graugaard, Senior Vice President, Head of Fleet Management, Lauritzen Kosan, commented:

“We have been looking for a crew manager who is experienced in full-scale technical ship management, thus giving them a full picture understanding of the unique demands of the tanker and LPG industry, including TMSA and OCIMF. We are proud to present OSM Maritime Group as our new partner and convinced they will provide high quality crewing services.”
