The Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the U.S.-based manager of the Liberian Registry, has appointed Jorg Andreas Molzahn as regional operations manager of its dedicated Hamburg office.
Molzahn has seagoing experience as a senior officer on tankers, containerships and passenger vessels, as well as being a qualified nautical inspector. His role at LISCR’s Hamburg office will include, among other duties, the review of ship security plans and safety management manuals, the conduct of onboard and shore-based ISPS and ISM/ISO audits, and the co-ordination of ISPS/ISM certification operations.
Germany is one of the Liberian Registry’s largest client bases in terms of both tonnage and numbers of ships – and it is growing all the time. Albrecht Gundermann, general manager of LISCR’s Hamburg office, says, “Over a five-year period from the opening of the Hamburg office at the end of 2003, we expect to double the number of ships on the register for German owners and operators. Our success has defined Liberia as the clear market leader in Germany.
