"After having participated actively in the mineral studies in Greenland in recent years, we are very pleased with the signing of this contract. We have been involved via different exhibitions in Canada, China and Greenland and as consultants for several of the mining companies", says Ole Bøgh Ulriksen, who is responsible for Blue Water's business development in the North Atlantic.

The Canadian corporation True North Gems is constructing the mine and production is expected to start at the end of 2015. A large part of the extraction will take place near the mine and production facilities will be built in Nuuk for registration, sorting and cleansing of the precious stones.

"Most of the production equipment, including crew modules and other elements will be shipped via Nuuk to the mine. The volumes are expected to be around 30 or 40 containers. In addition, various special assignments with large modules and air freight will follow. Blue Water has been chosen for this project because of our great experience in Greenland and our large international network, which enable us to coordinate worldwide shipments. Also, it is important that we show great local commitment and use local manpower", says Kenneth Skovbjerg Pedersen, who is sales responsible for Blue Water's activities in the North Atlantic.
