August 15 - BBC Chartering has re-launched its presence in Denmark, opening a representative office in Esbjerg.
"Global wind power saw an unprecedented growth recently, for the first time crossing 60 GW in new capacity installments in 2015. Consequently shipping volumes for the sector have increased significantly over the last two years", observed Svend Andersen, chief executive officer of BBC Chartering. "It's imperative for us to support the industry in Denmark, which is a core market and home to decision makers supplying wind power components globally."
As the carrier's 33rd location, BBC Chartering in Esbjerg will directly cooperate with BBC Chartering in Bremen, Germany which also focuses on wind power customers. Both entities are steered from the company's European operating hub and global headquarter in Leer, Germany.
Mads Poulsen (pictured below), who transferred from BBC Chartering Singapore, was appointed as regional sales & chartering manager for the Esbjerg office. He joined BBC Chartering in November 2013, and has previously worked for Siemens Wind Power.
