Bergen, Norway, 01 February 2021 — StormGeo, a global leader delivering shipping solutions in voyage planning, route advisory and fleet performance management, announced today the opening of a new office in Copenhagen, Denmark. The expansion in Denmark will strengthen the company’s partnership with shipping customers in this market.
“The decision to expand into Denmark was a logical move in our growth strategy,” said Kim Sørensen, COO Shipping Division, StormGeo. “We are experiencing a growing demand in Denmark for integrated shipping solutions such as StormGeo’s s-Suite and having local people with shipping expertise is a natural step forward.”
Denmark is a well-known market for StormGeo, having supported customers in offshore wind for many years. StormGeo’s CEO, Søren Andersen, its COO of shipping Kim Sørensen and its chairman, Carsten Mortensen are Danish with shipping backgrounds. Sørensen added, “This has definitely opened some doors for us, and now we feel it is the right time to have dedicated staff in the region.”
