NORDEN will open office in Melbourne, Australia

NORDEN is expanding our global reach by opening a new office on the Australian continent.

We have done business with Australian counterparts for many years and by opening an Australian office we aim to build stronger relationships with existing brokers and charterers through increased contact and physical meetings on a formal as well as informal basis.

The NORDEN office in Melbourne will report to NORDENs regional office in Singapore.

During the last decade, we have experienced a centralisation of dry bulk activities in and around Singapore – and rightfully so, our own setup in Singapore is adding much value to our business. Now setting up an office in Melbourne is going 'against the current' – against the latest trends but we are confident that it will add value to our business as well – we are expanding our global reach and moving closer to our customers in the process – it will be a good supplement to our existing Singapore setup

The office will be operational during first quarter of 2015 and headed by Mr Christian Hornum, Chartering Manager who from his time working for NORDEN in Singapore has extensive knowledge of the Australian market and worked with a variety of customers and clients on the continent. He will be joined by Mr Mads M. Simonsen, Assistant Chartering Manager.

NORDEN terminates contracts with 10 Danish Senior Officers and 14 Danish Junior Officers resign after graduation

NORDEN has to make cost adjustments as a result of several years of significantly negative results in the Tanker segment and the grave outlook for the shipping industry and the tanker business in particular. 

The cost adjustments entail termination of contract with 10 Danish Senior Officers and resignation of 14 Danish Junior Officers on DIS-registered tanker vessels. The Senior Officers will resign in May and June 2012. The Junior Officers will resign after graduation and attainment of agreed sea service in 2012 and 2013.       

The vessels will then be manned by Indian and Philippine officers. 

The termination of contracts and resignations are part of a general cost-cutting plan in the Company which has also entailed reductions among land-based staff and a general restructuring of the Company's Junior Officer programme. 

Furthermore, contracting with Indian Senior Officers means that NORDEN will have crew for new Singapore registered vessels who meets the seniority requirements from oil majors.   

Lars Lundegaard, Head of the Technical Department, says: ”The revised crewing strategy is necessary in order to secure that NORDEN is competitive and has a flexible crew composition. We regret that we have to let go of 10 Danish Senior Officers and gradually after graduation 14 Danish Junior Officers, who have all contributed to NORDEN, but for all shipping companies, it is about securing their reason for existing. We will continue employing cadets, but we do not guarantee that we can offer them sea service later on as Junior or Senior Officers.”

New Chairman of the Danish Shipowners’ Association

At a shipowners’ meeting today, the Danish Shipowners’ Association elected Carsten Mortensen, CEO of Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S, as its new Chairman.

Carsten Mortensen replaces Lars Vang Christensen, who is resigning from his position as CEO of herning shipping a.s. due to a change of ownership. This means that he is leaving the Board of Directors of the Danish Shipowners’ Association.

Carsten Mortensen was elected to the Board of Directors of the Danish Shipowners’ Association in 2005, and he has been Vice Chairman since 2009.
 
In connection with the change of Chairman, Carsten Mortensen said the following:

”It is with regret that the Danish Shipowners’ Association must bid farewell to Lars Vang Christensen as its Chairman and as a member of the Board. Throughout his time with the Danish Shipowners’ Association, he has contributed to Danish shipping in a dedicated and very competent manner, and he has always emphasised the importance of the industry for the Danish economy. It will now be my task to continue the strategy and direction on which the Board of the Danish Shipowners’ Association are united. It is vital that we move forward with our work to ensure that, at all times, Danish shipping has a framework which, as an absolute minimum, corresponds to that under which our international competitors are operating.”

NORDEN receives CFA Denmark’s information diploma price

On 17 January 2008 NORDEN received the Information Diploma 2007 from CFA Danmark (Finansanalytikerforeningen).CFA Denmark describes the Information Diploma price in general as follows: “The price is an acknowledgement of a special effort within a selected part of all information to the share market. We still see more and more good examples of companies making a great effort to explain conditions, which in particular are important for specifically their company and business model.

The reason for awarding NORDEN the Information Diploma 2007 is described by CFA Denmark: Besides fine reporting in general, we find that the thorough presentation of the fleet and the segments in which NORDEN is engaged is a splendid example to follow. In this central area, NORDEN’s reporting is outstanding. This area is of course important to a shipowner, and therefore also important to analysts and investors in order for them to recognise a number of factors which are decisive for the value assessment of NORDEN’s shares.

The power of training

Extract from article in The BIMCO Bulletin October 2007 - interview with former shipping trainees now Assistant Chartering or Assistant Operation Managers

Since the shipping industry constitutes Denmark’s second most important export earner, it naturally features prominently in the country’s lists of career possibilities.
According to the Danish Shipowners Association, 20,000 nationals and 3,000 foreigners are employed by Danish shipowners, this figure rising to a total of 70,000 people when the wider maritime related industry is taken into account. There are, therefore, excellent prospects in the industry for bright careers for school and college leavers.

Intensive two year training programme
....On the chartering side, they learn about markets, cargoes and customers and they are taught to think ahead and consider what form future markets might take. They learn about the operator’s responsibility in ensuring that transport of goods is achieved as efficiently as possible and about the controller, who oversees freight assignment. ...

Why did they choose shipping ?
Christian Fossing Hansen
He was attracted to it by its international character and the wide possibilities it offered for an interesting career. During his training period with NORDEN he was sent to Scotland, The Netherlands, Norway, Singapore and Thailand; he is now working in the regional office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in Norden Tankers & Bulkers.

Christian Hornum
Christian Hornum grew up in Svendborg, an old port town with a strong tradition of shipping, so that the maritime industry was a constant presence. He too joined NORDEN when he was 22 years old and he too likes the international aspect of maritime life with the chance to meet people from different cultures.

Rasmus Saltofte
Once again it is the international flavour of shipping which so appealed, and, after researching the various companies to which he might apply for work, he took up an offer to join NORDEN straight from college, aged 20.

Network
Danish shipowners ensure that trainees work with counterparts from other large Danish maritime companies, so that Christian Fossing, Christian and Rasmus will have acquired an invaluable network of people at an early stage in their careers.

Norient Product Pool expands into the LR1 Segment

Today NORDEN's 50% owned Norient Product Pool published a press release;

In 2008, Norient Product Pool will enter into the LR1 segment of 60,000-75,000 deadweight tonnes product tankers. The participants of Norient Product Pool - D/S NORDEN A/S and Interorient Navigation Company Ltd. - have initially committed five product tankers to the Pool’s activities in this new segment.

The new activities in the LR1 segment will provide a valuable addition to Norient Product Pool’s present operations in the Handysize and Medium Range (MR) product tanker segments. The Pool currently operates 44 Handysize and MR units (35,000-52,000 dwt), of which 29 are ice classed.

“We continue to see transport patterns changing as new refinery capacity is located in Asia and the Middle East, far from the main consumer regions in Europe and North America. This leads to longer transport routes and, in this context, it is of great value to the Pool to have the larger LR1 vessels at our disposal. We believe the LR1 segment is very compatible with our current fleet and will enable us to
offer a more diversified service to customers,” says CEO Søren Huscher from Norient Product Pool.

The Pool will take delivery of the five new LR1 vessels from February to September, 2008. All vessels will be ice class 1A. They will operate globally. Including the five LR1 units, Norient Product Pool today has 42 vessels on order through the two participants in the Pool.
