New Wilhelmsen Office in Russian Baltic Port
Wilhelmsen Ships Service has opened an office on the port of Primorsk on the Russian Baltic Sea. The company started providing its broad range of ships agency services there in December 2009, supplying first MT Atalandi, which sailed on Dec. 16, and then MT Atlas Voyager, which sailed on Dec. 20. Since then Wilhelmsen Ships Service has consistently provided to other vessels visiting the port.
