Klaveness Ship Management AS is a separate entity within Torvald Klaveness, and is located in the head office at Drammensveien 260, Oslo, Norway.
The overall scope for Klaveness Ship Management is: To manage vessels safely and efficiently, seek continuous improvements and simultaneously maintain quality operations and the value of our owner’s assets.
Our main focus is ship management of Klaveness’ own vessels with emphasis on specialised tonnage.
In addition the company has an important role in supporting Klaveness in development of new business areas and new technical solutions.
Klaveness Ship Management is open for third party management, but mainly as a part of a total solution where vessels are also under commercial management from Klaveness. In such cases owners must commit to the same standards as for Klaveness’ own fleet.
Klaveness Ship Management also includes insurance, purchasing and crewing. Purchasing is handled from the Philippines, and crewing from Romania, the Philippines and South Africa.
With almost 70 years experience as a ship manager, Klaveness Ship Management has established a very good reputation, also among crew. Retention of crew is very high, ensuring high-quality and stable operation of all vessels, even through cyclic periods in shipping.
Klaveness Ship Management takes pride in early adaption of new requirements, whether it be new regulations, principal requirements or important trends in the industry.
