Danish shipping company Maersk Line has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with China Classification Society (CCS) on technical exchanges.
Under the agreement, signed on August 16, Maersk and CCS are set to start technical exchanges and cooperation in personnel training, emergency response services, Chinese shipyard and ship equipment information sharing, ship survey services, container vessel type research and development, as well as LNG power technology.
Namely, Maersk Line’s Head of Marine Standards Aslak Ross and Maersk Line (China) President Jens Eskelund held talks with representatives of CCS and reached the technical exchanges deal.
Maritime News explained that the cooperation between the two parties started in 2013 when Maersk’s then vice president Bo Cerup-Simonsen visited CCS.
Since then, Maresk and CCS have deepened mutual understanding and developed cooperation in containership survey, ERS services and other areas, according to the classification society.
