Donnelly Tanker Management:
Enlarging the tanker fleet

Hartmann AG

Donnelly Tanker Management and GHouse Investments have reached an agreement for the management of four tankers, which are owned by GHouse and have been on bare boat charter to Sonangol for several years.

After redelivery of the ships to GHouse, Donnelly assumed full management of the tankers, which range from 6,000 mt dwat to Aframax in size, in late July.

Some of the tankers will continue trading in Angola, whereas others will join a commercial tanker pool.

Donnelly is proud to have been awarded the management, which is another testament to the high quality of management and the good standing the company enjoys with oil majors.


United Bulk Carriers:
UBC Reception at the "Engine House"

Hartmann AG

UBC hosted its first major event “The UBC Reception” on September 5th at the historic Water Works in Philadelphia. 

The Engine House at the Water Works was the perfect gathering place for our clients, brokers and agents attending from a multitude of countries, lending an international flair to the venue in one of America’s founding cities, Philadelphia, also known as the “Cradle of Liberty”.  It was also the perfect setting to honor UBC’s elder statesman Morten Kielland who will be retiring at the end of 2018 after a long and distinguished career in the maritime industry. 

Everyone appeared to have a wonderful time and with the Schuylkill river and boathouse row as the backdrop, the delicious food and delightful conversation, our guests pronounced our reception a success and are looking forward to our next event; frankly so are we.


Hartmann Gas Carriers:
GasChem Hamburg assisting in a rescue operation

Hartmann AG

End of May, enroute from Panama Canal transit to Corpus Christi, GasChem Hamburg sighted a small boat. There was a person on board this small boat, standing on deck and giving signals by waving with a jacket over the head.

The crew of GasChem Hamburg instantly informed the Cristobal Signal Station about the sighting, the position and the intention to assist. Our vessel then reduced speed and finally stopped the engine while slowly proceeding towards the boat with the name CELEMAR. After close inspection, it became clear that there was only one person on board who was not injured, but the small boat’s engine had broken down and it had been drifting for about half a day already.

A boat of the Panama Coast Guard approached and came alongside the CELEMAR, made fast and then started to cast it off from GasChem Hamburg’s portside. Rescue op completed successfully.

Thanks to Captain and Crew of GasChem Hamburg for that professional action from Hartmann Reederei office!
