VesselMan secures new investors

Cloud-based ship management platform VesselMan has announced a group of new investors as it looks to grow its maritime customer base and expand the roll-out of its services.

Grieg, Møkster Investment, and Skagerak Maturo have been confirmed as additional investors in the firm, after Oslo-headquartered VesselMan secured agreements for its services with several shipping companies since 2016, including Wilhelmsen Ship Management, Transpetrol TP, Höegh LNG, PGS, Møkster Investment, Thomas W. Grieg and Skagerak Maturo.

As of today, the company has seven employees and says it plans to double that number within the next year as it looks to serve customers on every continent.

“We have an office in Singapore, and in 2019 we established agents in Athens and Dubai to get closer to potential customers and to lay the foundation for escalating growth,” said Glenn Edvardsen, CEO of VesselMan.

“The next step is to position VesselMan so that technical management can handle intelligent ships by utilising data to make decisions and perform tasks in an automated way.”
