OSM Maritime Group (OSM) has entered into a fleet management agreement to take over GC Rieber Shipping’s six offshore vessels with the business based in Bergen, Norway.

OSM will establish a new ship management company within the offshore segment in Bergen, which will be 100% owned by OSM and located together with OSM Bergen.

GC Rieber’s six vessels under management in Bergen include vessels under third-party management. OSM currently has 190 vessels under full technical management and other 400 vessels under crewing management.

The start date for the partnership is 5 October 2020.

GC Rieber will become a pure shipowner and project-house with focus on developing profitable and sustainable maritime projects.

“Our initial ambition is that both employees and our customers should experience business as usual. Over time, however, we aim to provide even better services through close interaction between our customers and our knowledgeable and experienced staff and crew because as we say in OSM, it’s all about people,” commented Geir Sekkesæter, managing director of OSM Norway.
