Gertsen & Olufsen establishes Chinese base

Shanghai: The Danish maritime specialist company Gertsen & Olufsen has established an office operation in Pudong, Shanghai in order to tap into the growing Chinese market for shipboard and offshore technology.

"We experience a growing interest for our greenship technology from an increasing number of Chinese shipyards and operators," said Gertsen & Olufsen md Thorsten Larsen-Seul. The Danish company is renowned for its biological waste-water treatment and electronic vibration compensation solutions.

"Our presence in Shanghai will further strengthen our possibilities of tapping into the growing market for shipboard and offshore installations in China," he added.

Recently, state-owned China Shipping placed an order for electric vibration compensators to be installed in eight 300,000 dwt VLOC's presently under build at Dalian Shipyard in the so-called Disc 3000-project.
At present, the newly established Shanghai office operation counts two people.  [18/08/09]
