The Singaporean ship management company Synergy Group is expanding its footprint in Europe with the opening of a new office in Hamburg, Germany.
Currently, Synergy Group has a global network of 25 offices and an operating fleet of more than 500 vessels, including the most complex LNG (including FSUs), LPG, and vast 20,000+ TEU container ships, as well as oil and chemical tankers, car carriers and bulk carriers
As a response to the growing demand from German shipowners, the Singapore-based company has now further expanded its global footprint with the opening of a new office in the city where Europe's third-busiest port is located, making it a key location for German and European vessel owners.
The new office in Hamburg will be operated by Synergy Marine Germany GmbH, a subsidiary of the Synergy Group, while Captain Ravi Kohli, Managing Director of Synergy Marine Germany GmbH and a ship management veteran, will head the Hamburg business.
"We have seen an upsurge in demand for top-quality ship management services from European ship owners and many of the world’s leading owners are headquartered in Germany," said Martin Ackermann, Synergy Group Chief Commercial Officer.
"The opening of this office further expands our global network and allows us to provide the technology-driven ship management solutions and fleet optimisation services our clients rely on," added Ackermann.
Hamburg is the 25th office in the global Synergy network which spans key global shipping hubs in 13 countries, according to a statement.
"Our German clients demand best-in-class services and expect their ship manager to collaborate with them as our industry manages challenges such as decarbonisation and digitalisation," commented Synergy Group founder and CEO, Captain Rajesh Unni.
