Mai disembarks after a nearly quarter of a century

BREMERHAVEN. After 24 years of service, Andreas Mai, long-time port captain and head of the Hanseatic City of Bremen Port Authority, retired at the end of November. Unfortunately, due to the corona pandemic, his official farewell ceremony with numerous guests had to take place in virtual form. Among others, Yoss Leclerc (President of the International Harbour Masters’ Association), Ingrid Romers (Executive Director of the European Harbour Masters Committee), Ben van Schepenzeel (Project Officer Port of Rotterdam) and Hamburg Port Captain Jörg Pollmann were on hand. bremenports managing director Robert Howe thanked Mai for his patience, respect and the human aspect of the cooperation – and emphasised: “You did everything you could to ensure that the ports in Bremen developed further in the best possible way.” The provisional management of the Port Authority has been taken over by the former head of department of the Bremen Port Authority, Captain Uwe Kraft. The recruitment drive to fill the position is still ongoing.
