The Rickmers Group sees itself as a pioneer in especially progressive and innovative maritime technologies. To ensure that newbuilds meet the highest standards and to increase the competitiveness of older ships through retrofitting and conversions, the segment Maritime Services employs its own teams of experts in the Maritime Technology business area.
The Group’s objective is to proactively support owners and charterers in keeping overall ship operating costs at a competitive level and CO2 emissions as low as possible, while complying with high technical and safety standards. In order to reduce bunker consumption and CO2 emissions, the Group supports owners and charterers by training the crew and carrying out technical retrofits to the ships.
Rickmers’ shipmanagement stands out thanks to especially transparent operational costs, which it declares in operational and financial reporting to international standards. The DNV GL 5 Star Excellence certification honours Rickmers’ shipmanagement for the highest operational standards, and certifies that the Rickmers Group undertakes efforts beyond statutory requirements towards the safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable operation of ships.
