Wallem Ship Management is to handle the technical and crew management of nine PCTCs under a deal signed with Oslo-based Höegh Autoliners. The vessels will be managed from its Singapore base.

Wallem Ship Management Managing Director Ray Mc Namara said Höegh was a feather in Wallem’s client cap. He said: “Höegh is such an extremely well-known and reputable ship owner in Europe and Asia and we are very proud to efficiently and safely manage their ships.

“The signing of the ship management contract is an important occasion for Wallem and by delivering reliable services from Hong Kong, Singapore and Hamburg, we can continue to attract reputable ship owners.”

Wallem will take over vessel management of the nine vessels in a staged process from May 2014.

Wallem broadened its ship management business to Singapore in 2013, complementing the company’s existing ship agency services in the city state.
These new vessels brings to 30, the number of PCC/PCTCs managed by Wallem Ship Management for ship owners such as NYK Line. It boosts its Singapore fleet to 22 vessels.
