Peter Döhle Sells Hammonia Reederei
Hamburg-based provider of shipping services Peter Döhle and Ernst Russ are selling ship management company Hammonia Reederei to Scandinavian investors, Ness Risan and Partners (NRP), a Norwegian investment fund and former owners of Containerships Group, Finland.
With the transaction, Ernst Russ follows its strategy and further focuses on activities in asset investment and asset management in shipping and real estate, said a release from Ernst Russ AG, a listed asset and investment management company in Germany with a focus on maritime business.
Prospectively, Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG bundles the fleet’s technical management in-house, however, remains service provider for Hammonia in Chartering, Crewing and Insurance.
The Hammonia Reederei is a technical ship manager for bulkers, container- and MPP-vessels and was founded in October 2003 by Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG and the Ernst Russ Group. Recently, the capital shares accounted for 31.37 % each.
The transaction is subject to antitrust approval, said the release.
