Enabling shipping ambitions
A conversation with Ulf Seidel of HAMMONIA
HAMMONIA Reederei is a ship management company and a skilled project developer in international shipping. The company manages a fleet of modern container vessels, dry bulk carriers, and tankers. Ulf Seidel, senior project manager at Hammonia, has been captured by the shipping industry and the people working in it since he started his career in shipping and ship finance 20 years ago.
Ulf Seidel: “We are having this third party management business where we're looking for projects for clients of us who would like to invest in container vessels, dry bulk vessels and tankers and most of them require additional finance attached to their investments”.
Enabling these shipping ambitions requires the support of financial partners who understand the intricacies of the shipping industry. NIBC has become a valuable partner for Ulf Seidel in achieving the success of HAMMONIA’s projects: “My personal business will strongly benefit from banks like NIBC who can look at such a project and help me to develop this for my clients”.
For HAMMONIA, NIBC's expertise and experience in the markets that they operate in make them stand out from other banks. As a result, HAMMONIA sees NIBC as a unique addition to their portfolio of banks.
Ulf Seidel: “NIBC will be one of the first banks that we will approach for our projects because the experience that we have was so good…”.
Unlike other banks NIBC pointed out the risks associated with such projects, and provides insight and assistance that is essential to the success of HAMMONIA's projects.
Ulf Seidel: “We think NIBC is very good to have in our portfolio of banks because they are one of a very kind, they know very much about the markets we are in and that has been a very well deserved experience. From our point of view, it's a very good relationship and we hope and we would like to do more business together”.
