Hamburg - United Heavy Lift and Ocean7 Projects are opening a joint office in Bergen, Norway. Both UHL and Ocean7 are two players in the market for heavy sea transport and want to specialise in the transport of heavy, project and breakbulk cargo.
The two companies have extensive heavy lift carrier fleets that complement each other very well. Lars Rolner, chief executive officer of United Shipping Group states: “I am happy to be having this opportunity to work together with Ocean7, we have had conversations about cooperating a few years ago and now finally we see it happen. Norway we see as a very strategic place to be. Christof- fer Dam Larsen will be heading the office. He is a trusted and known person to me.”
“We have always had the mindset of working together and this cooperation will enhance our ability of offering a wider scope to our customers in the future,” affirmed Ocean7’s chief executive officer Stefan Petersen.The two transport specialists will be able to cover all market segments of their industry through their cooperation in the new office, offer their customers an even larger and more diverse overall fleet, and make their combined know-how and experience available. “Being a part of this company will enable me to service the Scandinavian market with a wider variety of ships than I am used to,” said Christoffer Dam Larsen, who runs the Bergen office. “We see this new office as a start of building a world-wide network of offices together with Ocean7. The next offices we have on the drawing board will be in Asia and USA”, said Lars Rolner
