Danica opens new office in Batumi

Danica Crewing Specialists is pleased to announce it has opened a new office in Batumi, Georgia, enabling the company to access an even larger pool of competent officers and seafarers.

With a population of more than 3.7million, Georgia is a small country in the south-eastern corner of Europe which is home to some 10,000 officers and the same number of ratings,

Georgia’s key seafarer hub is Batumi, a city on the Black Sea coast with a population of about 300K, while the capital city of Tbilisi also offers a seafaring community.

In addition to recruiting, vetting and supplying Georgian crew, Danica’s new office will act as a point of contact for the many Ukrainian seafarers who are now based in the country. Georgia has recognition agreements for seafarers’ licenses with most flag states in the world. Its maritime education and certification systems have been completely overhauled over the past decade and now fully meet IMO STCW and EMSA requirements.

The new Danica office is headed by Capt Raul Beridze, a Georgian citizen who had a successful career at sea, culminating in the command of bulk carriers, before coming ashore in 2018 to found a manning agency which is now merged into the Danica Group. Working alongside him, the Danica Batumi team consists of three experienced crewing officers.

Announcing the new office, Captain Henrik Jensen, Danica Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Batumi, Georgia into the Danica group of companies. This addition will boost our pool of seafarers and is a welcome addition. Danica is diversifying and growing to ensure we are still able to provide our owners with the quality crew they require, particularly at this challenging time of crew shortages.”

Leading the way on Day of the Seafarer

Leadership plays a crucial role in sailing a harmonious ship and supporting seafarers in their challenging roles at sea, according to Captain Henrik Jensen, Managing Director of Danica Crewing Specialists.

As the global shipping industry marks Day of the Seafarer on June 25th , with this year’s theme of “Your Voyage, Then and Now”, Capt Jensen said: “Good leadership is vital in a high-pressure workplace like a ship, particularly among senior officers who could be leading a crew of 20 people, some of whom may be feeling quite stressed. Ships’ Masters do a great job and this is a good opportunity to celebrate their skills as we applaud all seafarers.”

To celebrate seafarer journeys, Danica is encouraging its crew members to share their stories online, using this year’s hashtag #seafarerjourney.

A qualified nautical captain, his own voyage has included extensive sea-going experience, particularly on offshore vessels. Coming ashore he held senior positions with leading shipmanagement companies, specialising in marine human resources, before founding Danica Crewing Specialists which supplies international crew, particularly from Eastern Europe, to a wide range of ocean-going vessels.

Mr Jensen was at the forefront in providing support to crew impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, especially crew change restrictions and Covid-19 vaccination. With offices in Ukraine he is now instrumental in providing support to displaced seafarers and their families, speaking out on behalf of crew impacted by the war in Ukraine and protecting his operational staff there. “People are important to me,” he commented. “This industry is all about the people we work alongside and successful businesses are built on relationships and mutual trust.”

Danica Training Services

Danica Training Services offers high-quality training courses at major seafarer hubs in Eastern Europe (Odessa in Ukraine) as well as online training courses. All our courses are designed to empower seamen to successfully fulfill their duties onboard ship, thus ensuring the safe, efficient and cost effective operations of the ship owner’s assets.
Victor, the third officer, completed a 4-day training at the Danica Training Center. He told us about the course and how useful it was.
Why did you choose Danika’s trainings?
I was recommended by the seafarers who previously attended it. I needed to structure information for my work. I needed to get specific information to be more confident about my knowledge.

Tell us more about courses
I studied individually. This is a great formula for quick results. Master devoted time to my specific questions and systematized my knowledge that had been obtained earlier in educational institutions.
In addition, Alexander is an excellent captain mentor who has developed an effective course for seafarers who want to improve their skills.

How long did the training last?
It took me 4 to 6 hours a day for 4 days to work intensively.
I think the duration of the training and the number of hours depends on the training program and the seafarer's request.
Training is a combination of work with a teacher in the classroom and homework after training.

What did you learn at the training?
I had specific inquiries about navigation, documents on the bridge for the second officer, fire equipment, rescue equipment, and more.
The course gave me confidence about my knowledge and now I am waiting for a promotion for a second officer.

Vaccinations. No jab, no travel, no job.

In the global fight against Covid-19, vaccination is a key. Therefore, IMEC and ITF strongly recommend that seafarers get vaccinated and for companies to ensure that the seafarers are vaccinated. But what does Danica Crewing Services think about vaccination?

Henrik Jensen
Founder of the Danica Group and Managing Director

For COVID-19 there are only two options: Be vaccinated or be ill. COVID-19 is a very serious illness. 20% of people who get the infection will require medical treatment in a hospital and 5% will require oxygen through a ventilator. Onboard the ships you work on there is no equipment or medicine to treat you if you get COVID-19 infected. There is only one bottle of oxygen and it will only last for some hours. A joining seafarer bringing the COVID-19 infection onboard will not only be a disaster for the person himself but also he could infect his fellow crew members.

An increasing number of countries and airlines are now only allowing persons who are fully vaccinated to travel. Maybe you will be able to join, but when your contract ends in 4-6 months’ time then you can find yourself in a situation where you will not be allowed to sign-off.

There are also countries who only allow shore leave for the crew if all crew members onboard are vaccinated. Do you want to be the one who blocks for the others to go ashore?

All the above together is the reason why an increasing number of owners only accept seafarers who are fully vaccinated.

In short: No jab, no job!

Vyacheslav Melnychenko
Recruitment Manager, Danica Crewing Services

Based on MLC procedures, employers should provide safe work space for seafarers. COVID 19 imposed a new focus of care - viral safety. IMO set up COVID procedures which should be followed.

Vaccination simplifies procedures and protects seafarers from illness. Bearing in mind that medical care on board is on a basic level and reanimation is almost impossible, we advise you to protect Yourself by vaccines.

Captain Oleksandr Kapitonov

Vaccination is very important for crew change. In many countries priority for crew change will be given to those crew members who are vaccinated.

If a sign-on crew member is not vaccinated they have to stay 2 weeks in a hotel on arrival in the Philippines (for example). This is an extra cost.

In many countries crew members can not be signed off if not vaccinated.

That’s why every seafarer has to be vaccinated to save his work.

Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), 104th session, 4-8 October 2021

The development of guidelines for remote surveys of vessels has been proposed to the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) meeting, which was online 4 - 8 October 2021. BIMCO attended these meetings also.

The IMO MSC meeting (session 104) considered the new proposal to develop guidelines on remote surveys, with a view to global and uniform implementation.

The COVID pandemic has shown the importance of developing common requirements for remote survey, but a ship can be successfully surveyed remotely?

Experience gathered since the start of the pandemic has shown that this can in fact be done, however the online surveys provide the right amount of detail and depth of information needed by the surveyor who is watching on a laptop or tablet is still a pending question.

The Classification Societies have recently reported a massive uplift in the demand for remote surveys.

Nowadays, remote surveys can be used for smaller tasks such as verifying a repair has been undertaken or ensuring minor damage has been rectified.

The lack of uniform guidance for remote surveys may cause negative impacts and undermine the safety on the vessel.

BIMCO is positive to remote surveys as a supplement and an alternative to the ordinary on-site surveys, whenever suitable. They encourage the IMO to develop common guidance for remote surveys.

Crew members are the key to greater efficiency, says Danica

Ship operators are placing greater recognition on the role crew members play as the key to reaching higher efficiency goals, according to crew specialist Danica, which is expanding to meet the growing demand for quality crew services.

As part of its expansion plans, the company will shortly open a new office in Riga, Latvia, and more are set to follow. Danica Managing Director Henrik Jensen said: “Shipping companies are beginning to realise that they have 8-10 seafarers on board for every one office employee and that the performance of these crew members is key to reaching the goal of higher efficiency, cost efficiency, safe operations, and delivering a better bottom line for the company.

“Shipping company CEOs are changing their perspective, away from seeing seafarers solely as a commodity and instead regarding them as important assets which need to be kept and developed. It’s time now for shipping company management teams to ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to crew matters,” he said.

Highlighting the fact that today’s shipping companies need to meet stringent technical, environmental and commercial requirements while returning a profit, Mr Jensen said this is leading more and more ship operators to outsource their crewing requirements. “Shipping companies are seeking a reliable partner for the manning of their vessels with experience and suitable resources, who understands their strategies and is able to implement them.

“The increasing operational requirements of modern vessels demand more specialised crew,” he said. “In order to attract high calibre individuals, today’s ship owners are looking for crew service providers who can deliver more than a just a cv. They want the total package including proper screening, support and training.”

Mr Jensen attributes Danica’s recent expansion to its focus on delivering services which meet the exacting needs of its owners and also to its careful screening of seafarers to ensure they fully meet the requirements of the roles they will fulfil onboard vessels.

“By using a smaller, boutique crew manager like Danica, shipping companies get access to experts in HR marine management, recruitment power and benefit from economies of scale,” he explained. “We are able to deliver an individually designed crew solution which exactly match the client’s needs – thus supporting them in reaching their business goals. We find our clients prefer this rather than having to fit in with the existing systems of larger firms.”

The smart ships of tomorrow will need smart crews too, he said. “Smart shipping is an evolution and not something that will happen overnight, although it is moving at a fast pace.

“New technologies and new vessel modus operandi will require seafarers to have an additional set of competencies,” he explained. “This will narrow the number of candidates who are able to fulfil the requirements – which makes proper screening and training even more important. This is exactly where Danica is strong. We are in a very good position to assist shipping companies with the manning of their smart ships.”

As well as meeting the high standards required by owners, Danica also ensures it appeals to the seafarers it employs. The company offers a vast number of training courses to enable seafarers to develop their skills and progress up the career ladder. “It is important that among seafarers we are a known as a preferred employer,” explained Mr Jensen. “This we achieve by offering jobs with ‘blue-chip’ ship owners as well being a fair employer and assisting crew members in their career through support such as structured promotion training programs.”

Danica has also seen an increase in the use of its crew management services, having recently taken on four new vessels to complement the more than 30 already under its management.

Danica welcomes Four Emerald And Four Diamond

Crew management specialist Danica Crewing Services is pleased to announce it has taken on the crew management of a further two bulk carrier vessels: the Four Emerald and the Four Diamond.
The 33,392 dwt
Four Emerald, built 2012, and the 34,059 dwt Four Diamond, built 2011, both sail under the Maltese flag.

Crew management of the vessels will be conducted in partnership with Sea World Management, a boutique style ship manager based in Monaco, which will deliver the technical management while Danica will be responsible for the crew management.

These two vessels bring Danica’s total number of vessels under crew management to 27. In total (including manning agency services) Danica now deploys more than 1,400 crew on more than 150 vessels through its five manning offices in Ukraine and Russia.

Henrik Jensen, Danica Managing Director, said: “We are excited about these two new vessels and the trust shown in Danica. We are looking forward to combining Danica’s hands-on approach with the competent and professional services of Sea World Management. Together we have designed a competitive crew service package which more than meets the owners’ individual needs.

“We have a number of new vessels in the pipeline which we believe is testimony to the value owners and ship operators place on the professionalism of our eastern European officers.”
Mr Jensen added: “We wish the Master, officers and crew of the
Four Emerald and Four Diamond safe sailings and good winds.”

Danica manages another Ultramax newbuilding

Crew management specialist Danica Crewing Services is pleased to announce it has taken on the crew management of a further newbuilding Ultramax Port Kyushu for Lisbon-headquartered Portline Bulk International.


The 62,550 dwt Port Kyushu, on her maiden voyage from Japan to Canada, was delivered by Oshima Shipbuilding Company, Japan, on 16th of May. The Liberian-flagged bulk carrier brings Danica’s fleet of crew managed vessels to 25.


Delivery of the Port Kyushu follows the entering into management of the Port Imabari which was delivered in January.


Henrik Jensen, Danica Managing Director, said: “With the addition of the Port Kyushu into our crew managed service, our fleet of managed vessels continues to grow in line with our strategy. We provide hands-on crew management and deliver a personalised service designed for each of our clients’ individual needs. We would like to thank the owners for the trust they have shown in us and we appreciate the excellent cooperation shown by teams in both companies which helped ensure this vessel sailed smoothly into our crew management service.”


Mr Jensen added: “We wish the Master, officers and crew of the Port Kyushu safe sailings and good winds.”

Danica takes on ultramax new building

Crew management specialist Danica is pleased to announce it has been entrusted with the crew management of newbuilding ultramax Port Imabari for Lisbon headquartered Portline Bulk International.

Henrik Jensen, Danica Managing Director, said: “We thank the owners for the trust they have shown in us and we appreciate the good cooperation shown by teams in both companies which helped ensure this vessel sailed smoothly into our crew management service.”

The vessel made her maiden voyage from Japan to Vancouver, Canada and crew members sent a photograph to Danica of a snowman they made on deck during the inaugural trip. Mr Jensen added: “We wish the Master, officers and crew of the Port Imabari safe sailings and good winds.”

Danica officers onboard the ice-breaking LNG carrier Vladimir Vize

We are pleased to announce that the Danica Crewing Services supplied four junior officers for the new build ice-breaking LNG carrier Vladimir Vize, which was named at a ceremony on the 11th of September at her builders, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd, in Korea.

The vessel is a part of the Yamal LNG project and after being delivered to her owners, MOL LNG Transport Europe Ltd., at the end of September, she will enter into service on the Northern sea route of Russia transporting LNG from Sabetta in Northern Russia to Asia. The LNG carrier Vladimir Rusanov – also with crew from Danica onboard – is already in the service in the same trade.

The vessels are the world’s first ice-breaking LNG carriers and they can all year around navigate on the Northern sea route without assistance from ice breakers. The vessels are 299 meters long and with a beam of 50 meters and with a deadweight of 96,844 ton.

The vessel is named after Vladimir Vize, a Russian scientist of German descent who devoted his life to the study of the Arctic ice pack. 

We congratulate the owners and wish the vessel and her crew to always have safe voyages.

Danica 5th Anniversary in Odessa

Today Danica in Odessa, Ukraine is celebrating our five-year anniversary under the Danica flag, but the roots of the office actually go back to 2009.

The business concept of Danica back then was – and still is today -  to provide high quality crewing services to demanding shipping companies by connecting shipping companies with highly competent seafarers who all have passed a rigid screening.

The concept has proven to be right: In the past five years Danica has deployed 10,935 seafarers on 499 vessels with 44 owners. 29,216 seafarers have registered their application with Danica. 9,210 seafarers were in our office for screening and 3,919 passed as they fulfilled our strict requirements.

The team in the office in Odessa today counts 33 members and in addition to the traditional manning agency services we offer a range of value added services including payroll, training, planning, crew logistic, consulting and accounting.

In 2015 Danica expanded with an office in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and in 2016 we established offices Vladivostok and Nakhodka in Russia.

In 2017 Danica Training Services was established to ensure homogeneous high-quality training of seafarers across the locations where we have offices.

Danica Hospitality People – our newest branch - has started operating this week to cover an increasing demand of service personnel for cruise vessels and ferries.

We take this opportunity to send a warm thank you for the support we have received from our clients, seafarers and partners. We are looking forward to continue working with you for the benefits of all of us.

Danica Achieves Certification by Germanischer Lloyd

Danica is now accredited by Germanischer Lloyds for being in compliance with Germanischer Lloyd’s Standard for the Approval of Recruitment and Placement Service Providers. The standard is a comprehensive ISO9000-like set of requirements to how a manning agency should operate and handle relations to clients, seafarers as well as operational and recruitment processes in order to achieve excellence in manning agency services. Following the standard also includes MLC 2006 compliance, and consequently Danica Crewing Services is also certified by Germanischer Lloyd for being in compliance with MLC 2006.

 Capt. Henrik Jensen, owner of Danica Maritime Group says: “The certification by Germanischer Lloyd of the Danica Crewing Services is a milestone in the company’s history, and confirms our commitment to supply services of highest standards, and always represent the shipowners and managers in a proper way and at the same time being a fair link to the seafarer employed through us.”

 The certification also closes the gab caused by Ukraine not being a party to the MLC, and Danica Crewing Services are fully able to supply crew to any flag also after the 20th of August, the day when the MLC comes into force.

Danica accepted by Liberian flag as Recruitment and Placement Provider under the MLC

Today Danica was accepted by the Liberian Registry of Shipping as Recruitment and Placement Provider Service under the MLC and Danica can continue to supply crew for vessels under Liberian flag after the 20th of August, when the Maritime Labour Convention comes into force.

Record number of Crew Recruited through Danica in June

It is known by all shipping companies: The shortage of competent crew always worsen in the summer months.

 Despite the high intake of officers, we do of course not compromise with our high standards of screening the competence of each and every seafarer in order to ensure that the candidates introduced fulfils the requirements of our principals.

 The reason for Danica being successfully in providing the many new officers is a combination of our very good reputation amongst Ukrainian seafarers as being a fair manning agency only providing employment with first-class owners, a large number of applications in our files, and our continuous advertisement efforts – and of course a well-organised, competent and committed team of recruitment professionals.

 Danica supplies more than 400 seafarers, mainly officers, to a wide portfolio of vessels including container vessels, bulk carriers, chemical, product and crude oil tankers as well as multi-purpose and heavy lift vessels, car carriers and bunker vessels. We also supply specialised crew to offshore vessels.
