V.Group has taken its first Russian flagged vessel
into full technical management following earlier successful
accreditation of the St.Petersburg office from the Russian
Register. The ship management services, which will be delivered
by V.Ships operations in Limassol and BGI crewing operations in
St. Petersburg, are a significant milestone, marking V.Group's
entry into this market.

The vessel - UMBA - owned by RPK Nord is permanently stationed in
Murmansk and following successful inspection from one oil major
that took place immediately after the change of management, she
is supporting the oil industry as a storage tanker.

Vasilii Reznichenko, Russian Register said: "We are pleased to
see V.Ships and BGI expand their services in this part of the
world as a ship manager. Our review of the safety management
system confirms the business has a unique tool to operate the
vessels in a safe and efficient manner."

Boris Komlev, managing director of BGI's St Petersburg operations
said: "With the largest crew network in the region, we are very
pleased to be working with our colleagues in Limassol to provide
a full technical ship management service for our clients here in

Alex Halavins added: "This occasion is a celebration of teamwork
and partnership - not only within our own business but with our
clients and their customers as well as the shipping authorities.
We are very excited at the opportunity to offer our leading ship
management services to clients in Russia."
