Gertsen & Olufsen Stepping Stone in China

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

The Danish maritime specialist company Gertsen & Olufsen A/S, has established an office operation in Shanghai in order to tap into the growing Chinese market for shipboard and offshore technology.

Danish maritime specialist Gertsen & Olufsen A/S has established a commercial Chinese stepping stone in the form of an office operation in Pudong, Shanghai.
 
“We experience a growing interest for our greenship technology from an increasing number of Chinese shipyards and operators,” said Thorsten Larsen-Seul, managing director at Gertsen & Olufsen A/S.

The Danish company is among the world’s leading companies when it comes to biological waste water treatment and electronic vibration compensation.

Recently, China Shipping, a Chinese state-owned shipping company, placed an order for electric vibration compensators to be installed in eight 300,000 dwt VLOC’s presently under build at Dalian Shipyard in the so-called Disc 3000-project.
 
“Our presence in Shanghai will further strengthen our possibilities of tapping into the growing market for shipboard and offshore installations in China,” Larsen-Seul said.

Also recently, the Danish company teamed up with U.S.-based EnSolve Biosystems announcing a distribution agreement under which the Danish company will market and sell EnSolve’s PetroLiminator, a biological oily water separator, alongside its own DNV IMO-approved biological sewage plant Bioreactor for black and grey water treatment.
 
“The agreement permits us to offer a full suite of ‘all-green’ treatment solutions for bilge, black and grey water,” Larsen-Seul said.

At present, the newly established Shanghai office operation counts two people.
