New service agency focusses on “Green Shipping”
Due to increasing demand for Green Environmental technologies in the maritime sector, TMS-Hamburg Technical Marine Services is spinning off its agency business into TMS Technical Marine Solutions GmbH.
Hamburg, 28.02.2021 – With immediate effect, the new provider of Green technology solutions in maritime environmental protection is Hamburg-based TMS Technical Marine Solutions GmbH. The company offers innovative and customised systems, components and services for ship operations.
The newly founded company is called Technical Marine Solutions GmbH and serves over 100 shipping companies and maritime customers. With the spin-off, the management is reacting to the increased demand for environmentally friendly processes, systems and products. Due to the continuous tightening of international requirements and regulations in maritime environmental protection, the demand for sustainable solutions has increased significantly and will determine the technical specification of ships in the future.
In close cooperation with the international manufacturers and service companies represented by TMS Technical Marine Solutions, it is establishing itself as a specialised provider for operational improvements in ship operations and will develop, design and implement future proof environmentally relevant solutions for upcoming regulatory changes.
TMS Technical Marine Solutions GmbH exclusively represents Hyde Marine, Vickers Oils, Wågene Purifiner Technology and Rivertrace Engineering in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Hyde Marine, INC. is one of the world’s most experienced technology companies for ballast water treatment (BWT). With more than 500 system installations for ballast water treatment, the American company is one of the major suppliers in the effective filtration and UV disinfection of ballast water.
Benjn R. Vickers & Sons Ltd, pioneers in the marine industry, launched the world’s first Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) for sterntubes in 2002. Trading since 1828 and now led by the 5th and 6th generation of the family, the British manufacturer’s marine product portfolio ranges from rudder lubricants and hydraulic oils to thruster greases.
Wågene Purifiner Technology AS, based in Norway, has been a market leader in the filtration of biodegradable lubricants in the marine industry for more than 15 years, with more than 3,000 units sold worldwide.
Rivertrace Engineering Ltd. is a market leader in monitoring and supervision of critical machinery systems in marine, offshore and industrial sectors. The long-established British company offers a wide range of IMO-compliant monitoring systems for oil in water detection.
The new team consists of eight sales managers, engineers and specialists with many years of experience in the maritime industry. The managing director for the spin-off is Peter Leveringhaus, who has gained extensive sales experience in the maritime industry. Among others, he has worked for the propulsion manufacturer SCHOTTEL, the German and Italian classification societies Germanischer Lloyd and RINA in leading positions.
Martin Stoltenberg, owner of TMS, expects the new subsidiary to successfully expand the agency business: “With Peter Leveringhaus as Managing Director, we have an experienced manager on board who brings more than fifteen years of experience in the maritime industry.”
According to Leveringhaus, the portfolio of offers and services is to be gradually expanded in order to provide maritime customers with innovative, customised and, above all, efficient products and services that enable sustainable ship operation.
