J. Lauritzen founding member
of the Trident Alliance

Jul 7 2014


A group of shipping companies with worldwide operations have today founded the Trident Alliance.

The Trident Alliance is a coalition of ship owners and operators sharing a common interest in robust and transparent enforcement of current and forthcoming marine sulphur regulations.

The alliance will partner with all stakeholders sharing the interest in global enforcement and collaborate on initiatives supporting this objective.

Sulphur regulation is of particular interest due to the combination of high compliance costs and frequently low levels of enforcement. The initiative is initially focused on seeking fair competition arising from enforcement in the particular area.

"I am pleased that the alliance has been founded and that J. Lauritzen from the beginning is part of this important initiative to work for effective enforcement of sulphur regulations thus securing a level competitive playing field while supporting the environmental benefits intended by the legislators", says Jan Kastrup-Nielsen, president and CEO of J. Lauritzen.
