North of England P&I Club Renews Commitment to Danish Market

September 14, 2007

The ‘A’ rated, 75 million GT North of England P&I club reaffirmed its commitment to the Danish shipping industry this week with a reception for members, potential members and their advisors at Langelinie Pavillonen in Copenhagen.

Guests included Lars Christensen, senior vice president and head of the tanker department at Norden, and Anders Schmidt, general claims and insurance manger of Clipper Bulk, both of whom represent Denmark on the club’s board of directors. Other ship-owning, operating and chartering companies represented at the event included Atlas Shipping, Clipper Elite Carriers, Comet Shipping, Custodia Shipping, Dannebrog Rederi, DFDS, Eitzen Bulk, NIMA Management, Norient Product Pool, TKB Shipping and TORM (TORM.CO). Prominent brokers involved in the Danish market and local lawyers and correspondents also attended.

North of England was represented by managing director Rodney Eccleston, regional directors Stephen Purvis and Katherine Birchall, underwriting director John Howe, claims manager Tricia Forrest and FD&D solicitor Joanna Meadows. Speaking at the reception, Eccleston said, ‘Our relationship with the Danish shipping community can truly be said to have ‘come of age’ as it is now 21 years since we accepted our first entries from Arne Holt Shipping in 1986.’

North of England insures a total fleet of 3000 ships entered by 310 member groups from around the world. Owned tonnage is currently 58 million GT and chartered tonnage accounts for around 17 million GT.
