BSM commences management of Ultra Large Containerships

Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) announced on 10 July 2017 that the 20,146TEU containership MOL Tribute has come under the full management of the Hong Kong Ship Management Centre.

Built by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea, MOL Tribute is 400 meters in length having a deadweight of 196,877, with her sister ship MOL Tradition scheduled to enter Hong Kong management at the end of August.

Through these significant milestones, BSM becomes part of a very select group of operators that have the expertise to manage some of the world’s largest containerships.

The extremely detailed process to select and appoint a ship manager for the ultra large containerships was commenced by the owner nearly two years ago, with BSM being selected following visits to the Hong Kong Ship Management Centre, the Mumbai Maritime Training Centre and on board large containerships currently being managed by the Company.

BSM’s strong relationship with Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) stretches back almost three decades and extends across bulk carriers, containerships and tankers which are both owned and chartered by MOL.

This significant decision demonstrates the trust that owners are placing in BSM’s capabilities to manage their new flagship containerships.
