Sino-Danish maritime cooperation is extended with the opening of the CCS office in Copenhagen. The CCS, which falls under the Chinese Ministry of Transport, opens offices in Copenhagen.
Director General Andreas Nordseth from the Danish Maritime Authority stresses the importance of having a good working relationship with other major maritime nations.
”For a maritime nation such as Denmark, it is important to have good relations and to cooperate with major maritime nations like China. Therefore, I am pleased about the possibility of strengthening this cooperation and dialogue through the opening of the CCS office in Copenhagen. The CCS will be an important partner i Blue Denmark."
The CCS is a classification society that carries out class inspections and certification of ships, offshore installations, equipment, etc. and offers technical advice in and outside China.
In 2015, the CCS was recognised for carrying out surveys on behalf of the Danish maritime authorities. In addition to ship surveys, the CCS also approves equipment in connection with shipbuilding in China and is, thus, a major player for the Danish marine equipment industry.
