“With this agreement, we have made firm commitments to long-term plans for DESMI Ocean Guard. The sale of our stake is a consequence of Maersk Group’s strategy to focus on our core businesses and in accordance with the ownership plans presented as DESMI Ocean Guard was established, “says Chairman of DESMI Ocean Guard Board Bo Cerup-Simonsen. As DESMI Ocean Guard is outside of our core business a dedicated owner with full focus on developing the business going forward is rightfully deserved. With the transfer of full ownership of DESMI we are confident DESMI Ocean Guard is in the right position to succeed both technically and commercially, “continues Bo Cerup-Simonsen. The transaction gives DESMI A/S full ownership of the company, which has two successfully tested systems for the treatment of ballast water in its portfolio. The newly developed RayCleanTM system was launched recently, but has already secured several orders for the first systems that are currently under installation.
