Our technical organization is responsible for the management of our vessels, owned or bareboat chartered, by Nordic Tankers, herning shipping and in majority of the Crystal Nordic fleet. The management of these vessels includes all technical matters together with all crewing related activities. The core of our activities is a safe and reliable operation. We are also competitive and ensure that key points to the chemical industry are efficiently implemented in our daily work.

The technical organization is also the home of our safety culture, which is spread across the organisation, at sea or ashore, through conferences, meetings and messages and last but not least, through our global safety day every year.
