Burmeister & Wain American Corporation Organizational Change

In the light of the increasing emphasis on minimizing fuel oil consumption and the subsequent widening i n t e r e s t among U.S.

shipowners for the application of the low-speed diesel engine, Burmeister & Wain American Corporation has recently carried out an organizational change, which is meant to further ensure a strengthening of their customer relations.

The Burmeister & Wain American Corporation (BWAC) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Burmeister & Wain A/S, Copenhagen, Denmark.

In order to intensify the efforts of all their diesel engine oriented activities in the U.S., the various related divisional groups, Engineering, Marine Service, etc., will now be managed by one central body, the Diesel Group.

The manager of the Diesel Group is Claus Windelev, who will refer directly to the president of BWAC, P.C. Knudtzon, in all corporate matters, and directly to the divisional managers for the r e s p e c t i v e B&W divisions in Copenhagen in all product matters.

The Marine Service operations in the U.S., including those conducted through their well-reputed New Orleans (La.) Service Center, are being managed by Lars Krieger Thomsen, who is referring directly to Mr. Windelev.

Mr. Windelev, who has a B.S.

degree in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Copenhagen, prior to his New York assignment was in charge of the R&D function in the 4-stroke, medium-speed department at B&W, Copenhagen.
