More than ten per cent of Wallem’ Ship Managements fleet was presented with Amver (Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System) Awards by Captain Michael H. Sim, United States Coast Guard Liaison Officer to China, in Hong Kong today.

Simon Doughty, Wallem Group CEO, received the Awards on behalf of the crew on board each of the vessels recognised for their involvement.

“Assistance at sea is the oldest maritime obligations, and I am proud to be associated with the Wallem seafarers who uphold this worthy tradition,” said Mr Doughty.

Of the 47 Wallem-managed vessels receiving an Award, the Banda Sea stands head and shoulders above the rest, being recognised for 23 consecutive years of involvement in the Amver rescue system.

Captain Gennadiy I. Mozzhin of the Banda Sea, says Amver is important because it supports the sea-going community: “There is a world community, a world community of those that go to sea. Together we can save lives.”

Amver is sponsored by the United States Coast Guard and is a unique, computer-based and voluntary global reporting system, used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea. With Amver, rescue coordinators can identify participating ships in the area of distress and divert the best-suited ship or ships to respond.

Amver’s mission is to quickly provide search and rescue authorities, on demand, accurate information on the positions and characteristics of vessels near a reported distress.

The Amver Awards Program was inaugurated in 1971 to recognise vessels which regularly participate in the Amver system.

AO Shipping has selected Wallem Europe as the managers of its two new-build I-Star Ultramaxes, which will be delivered in 2015 from Imabari Shipbuilders.

Alexander Oetker, AO Shipping owner and managing director, said Wallem was selected based on its “abilities to successfully manage these ships safely and with great quality.”

Wallem has been managing vessels for AO Shipping since 2009, and with the addition of the I-Star Ultramaxes, from 2015 Wallem will be managing five vessels on behalf of the owner.

Wallem Europe Managing Director Ulrich Paulsdorff said the new vessel contracts were an endorsement of the maritime services offered by Wallem in Europe.

“A repeat client is a true validation of the quality services the Wallem team in Europe delivers,” said Mr Paulsdorff. “Working alongside our colleagues from the broader Wallem Group we can offer a wide range of maritime solutions that no other ship manager or maritime services company can emulate.

“A Wallem superintendent and crew take over team will join the vessels well before they leave the ship yard, making themselves very familiar with the ships and their equipment.”

With the addition of the AO Shipping Ultramaxes, Wallem will be managing more than 140 bulk carriers from its ship management hubs in Europe, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Wallem Europe is a hub of expertise based in Hamburg, Germany, delivering a full range of maritime solutions from a strategic maritime location. Wallem Group now boasts hubs in Hong Kong and Singapore in addition to Europe, strategically positioning the Group to deliver customer needs. New service points have also been opened in South Africa and the Americas.

Wallem Ship Agency, a key service sector in Wallem Group’s maritime solutions value proposition, has a new leader in Dickson Chin, who has been promoted to the position of Managing Director.

Dickson Chin has been with Wallem Ship Agencies since 2008, initially in the role of General Manager for the Hong Kong ship agency business, and in 2012 was promoted to Managing Director for Indo-China.

Simon Doughty, Group CEO, said “it is really rewarding to promote staff from within the organisation, especially when the individuals have shown outstanding leadership skills and fully deserve the promotion and the additional responsibilities that go with this new career challenge.

“Dickson will continue to ensure a high quality service delivery from our agency teams that our clients expect, and he will also mentor and coach individuals so that they can further their careers in the Group.”

Dickson will be leading a network of 26 offices across Asia, South Africa and Americas, with teams delivering a full port agency service and a range of marine and logistics services to vessel owners, operators, charterers and cargo interests.

The comprehensive service covers all vessel types including cruise ships, container vessels, heavy lift, bulk carriers, oil and gas tankers and naval vessels.

Wallem is a recognised cruise leader in Asia and the agency of choice for the world’s major cruise lines. Wallem was the first fully licensed foreign provider in China, offering services in all ports on the Mainland through the Wallem network.

Wallem is the General Sales Agent for Cargolux Airlines and Saudi Air Cargo in selected locations. The company also offers P&I services in Indochina and today represent most of the major P&I Clubs and leading Underwriters.

Dickson has been successfully leading the teams in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar, mentoring key staff, coordinating the navy calls in the region, and building the business. He has also continued to support the growth of Wallem’s cruise business across Asia; Wallem now handles more than 450 cruise port calls every year.

Dickson is highly regarded and has a well-deserved excellent reputation with clients and staff.
