About us


Star MarinePro is driven by one big goal that we continuously want to over-achieve: We always want to provide the best technical solution to the marine and offshore industries.

Especially for non-Chinese clients, we coordinate, manage and supervise all projects so that they can gain the maximum benefit of China’s shipping know-how and infrastructure.

During the last 18 years, Star MarinePro (founded company as Star trading Co., Ltd. Shanghai) has quickly developed for a marine parts and product trading company to a full-service technical provider: From building whole ships to all sorts of refurbishing.

Our hub is in Shanghai, the heart of China`s shipping industry. Supported by a representation in Northern Europe, we keep the communication lines between the two different business cultures swift and smooth. Our commitment is clearly worldwide: Wherever you are from, will maintain the asset value of your vessels as economically as possible. We ensure the projects under our management are kept in optimal condition in terms of mechanics, technology and personal management – and in a state of operational readiness and compliance.

Star MarinePro has delivered safety and technical standards that have become benchmarks in the industry. In order to be continuously one of the best technical solution companies, we have to be continually innovating to stay ahead of the curve. That is why we continue to invest in technology. Today, together with our wide range of corporative partners, no technical challenge in the maritime industry will be faced unprepared.

Star MarinePro offers a comprehensive range of ship management services that we tailor to each vessel owner’s needs. These include technical and engineering services, new building supervision, insurance, independent surveys, superintendence, audits and commercial management.

Star MarinePro encompasses two other companies: Star Ocean Engineering and Star Trading. Together we are dedicated to providing you first-class service with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Equally important, we want to be judged by our three core values: transparency, commitment and integrity.

Milestone after Milestone …

In less than 20 years, Star MarinePro has developed from a small business into a worldwide service provider for the maritime industry. On its way, it has taken many of its major players on board as its partners. That’s how it began – and how it developed:


Star Trading Co., Ltd Shanghai is founded as a trading house serving the marine sector.


First brokerage, site supervision and projection management for Herning Shipping. In the subsequent years, many such projects follow in quick succession – for Jo Tanker, Lauritzen Offshore, A2SEA and others.


We establish a consultancy for ship building and maintenance services in China.


Business in the shipbuilding and supervision segment increases further. So we establish Star MarinePro Corp. in order to increase our capacities and develop a brand targeted to this segment.


Major reconstruction supervision projects become part of our portfolio, for example for M/V Torben, a DP2 Turbine Installation Platform. In order to expand into engineering solutions, we establish Star Ocean Engineering.


We reach an exclusive agent agreement for Elkon in China.


We establish the Star MarinePro Group, which encompasses all business units: trading, engineering, consultancy & supervision. Star MarinePro is also represented in Northern Europe as a platform serving our overseas clients.
