Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM) has opened a new ship management office in Bergen to serve the offshore sector.

The largest growth in Norwegian shipping takes place in the offshore segment. Other ship owners in the region have also grown significantly. The new operation in Bergen is a consequence of this growth. We wish to be closer to these customers to offer our experience in vessel operation and manning service,” says Haakon Lenz, regional manager WSM Europe. The new office will be collocated with Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) at Skoltegrunnskaien 1, Bergen.

WSS is well established in Western Norway, with offices in Bergen, Ålesund, Mongstad and Stavanger and is represented in all the major ports along the Norwegian coastline.

“Looking ahead we expect continued strong growth in the maritime industry in Western Norway and note that several owners with new tonnage are entering this market. As a third party ship manager we offer access to qualified crew, cost effective purchasing of shipboard supplies and world class expertise in ship operation. In addition, we provide customers with a full overview of how their money is spent,” adds Lenz.

Wilhelmsen Ship Management is part of the Wilhelmsen Maritime Services group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding ASA. WSM has responsibility for technical ship management of more than 160 ships in most vessel segments as well as manning services for a further 250 ships.
