GSR provides services for a vessel’s entire lifecycle: advising on the initial manufacturers and suppliers of materials and components delivered to shipyards, to the upkeep and/or updating needs of shipowners and brokers during in a vessel’s operations, and finally to ship recyclers involved in the dismantling. These services include dealing with flag states, classification societies, and remote waste management operations.
All the client-tailored solutions are based on the company’s vast technical and legal knowledge and experience. Well-connected internationally to various stakeholder networks, GSR’s CEO Henning Gramann established “The International HazMat Association e.V.” in 2013 to provide compliant, efficient IHM services to ship owners globally.
