Thome Ship Management has reached a new milestone by taking over the full management of its first vessel to be flagged under the Danish International Ship Register.


The technical and crew management deal, signed with Danish ship owner Evergas, involves the 12,000 cubic metre ethylene carrier JS Greenstone which was placed under the Danish flag during a recent State visit by HM The Queen of Denmark and HRH The Prince Consort to China.



A naming ceremony at the Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (SOE) shipyard in Qidong was attended by Anne H. Steffensen, Director General of the Danish Shipowners’ Association; Andreas Nordseth, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority; and Carsten Mortensen, Chairman of the Danish Shipowners’ Association and CEO of Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN.



Mrs Steffensen, who is Godmother of the vessel, said at the naming ceremony: “The name chosen for this vessel signals strength and firmness, and I am certain that this vessel will be a staunch addition to the fleet of Evergas’ modern vessels and the first to proudly sail under the Danish flag.”
 


Carsten Brix Ostenfeldt, CEO of Thome Ship Management, stressed Thome’s pride at managing its first vessel to be registered under the DIS. He said: “Thome is a global ship manager with close associations with Denmark and Scandinavia. We are one of the pioneers of bringing quality third part ship management to Denmark and so we are delighted to be working closely with our friends at Evergas.”
