Harren Group launches ship management arm
Harren Group, the company that is at the core of heavy-lift shipping, maritime engineering, and project logistics, and has the likes of SAL Heavy Lift, Intermarine and Combi Lift under its own umbrella, has now expanded its portfolio even further. Responding to customer feedback, the company has launched Harren Ship Management.
According to the company, the decision was made following customer feedback on ship management services available in the market. Harren Group decided to leverage its experience in managing its own fleet and third-party vessels for over three decades and offer ship management services to owners under the new Harren Ship Management brand.
The holistic management strategy is built on a vessel-centric approach that proactively considers the constantly changing market environment and the key stakeholder interests of owners and charterers.
Owners directly benefit from the extensive know-how of the wider Harren Group with their range of vessel types and deep expertise in owning, managing, chartering and commercially operating ships. This holistic expertise ensures a vessel is consistently well-positioned to earn the best possible revenues, according to the company.
Comprehensive ship management services are available for all major vessel types, including heavy-lift and multi-purpose vessels, tankers, bulkers, container vessels and offshore wind.
Harren Group Managing Director Nils Aden describes the new service, “A multi-million-dollar asset deserves more than standard off-the-shelf management. It’s vital to be proactive about taking the many constantly changing parameters into account. This ranges from managing opex in different market cycles to dynamically adapting charterer requirements and adjusted asset strategies.”
“An owner’s success depends heavily on their managers’ ability to connect the dots. We fully understand our customers’ needs from our own daily operations,” Aden continues.
Harren Group CEO Martin Harren adds, “With our deep understanding of commercial markets, we are uniquely qualified to help vessels generate the highest possible revenues. Our ship management clients further benefit from access to our wide-ranging group activities, global office network, strong approach on sustainability and engineering excellence.”
