HAV established their technical management function in 1999 when HAV Bulk AS aquired its first ship. HSMN’s main focus is the sea–river segment, with smaller bulk and feeder vessels between 2,000 and 10,000 dwt. These vessels require efficient and well organized maintenance due to North Sea voyage conditions, frequent port calls and diversity of bulk/project cargoes.
HSMN handles all aspects of ship management, including ship operation, vessel inspection, repairs and conversions, project development, quality assurance, manning, purchasing, cost control and accounting.
HSMN interacts closely with HAV Chartering to optimize ship operation and ensure HES, QA/QC, ISM/ISPS compliance. Operation of HSMN vessels is based on quality routines and systems that meet the requirements of the most stringent flag and coastal states, classification rules, regulations and the charterers themselves.
