OSM Crew Management for Lauritzen Kosan Fleet

Posted by Michelle Howard !!!

Global ship management company OSM Maritime Group said it has been awarded full crew management of Lauritzen Kosan's entire fleet of liquefied gas tankers, including 26 refrigerated ethylene, semi-refrigerated and pressurised gas carriers.
OSM's focus on the provision of personal service and expert seafarers, combined with delivering business efficiencies and economies of scale, has seen the company grow considerably in 2017. This latest contract ranks as its largest individual win of the year, bringing the number of vessels OSM provides services to far beyond the 500 mark. It also consolidates the company's position as one of the world's largest, and leading, crew managers for gas tankers.

OSM Crew Management in Copenhagen, a key regional base for the company, will coordinate activities for Lauritzen Kosan, which is itself headquartered in the Danish capital. The Manila office of OSM will perform the Crew agency tasks and is currently recruiting additional expert seafarers.

OSM Managing Director Crew Management, Tommy Olofsen, said his team is now "working intensively" on preparation for the takeover.

Alongside Lauritzen Kosan, OSM has also brought JP Morgan, Statoil and Scorpio into the fleet, amongst others, this year. The company now offers a global crew pool of more than 11,000 seafarers.
