ZEN OCEANS was founded in 2020 by three engineers who are passionate about the ocean and making seaborn transportation truly sustainable, once again. As our pioneering forefathers explored the oceans with sailing ships, we believe the time is ripe for closing the circle and returning to zero emission seaborn transportation.

Andreas is an experienced entrepreneur who has been involved in several start-ups, and industry successes within the maritime domain. Andreas has worked with technology development, R&D, ship design and shipbuilding his entire career. ZEN OCEANS was his next step and he is fully committed to electrifying the oceans. 


Fridtjof C. Eitzen, Co-founder

He is the fifth generation of the Norwegian shipping company Camillo Eitzen & Co and currently serves as Chairman of Christiania Shipping in Copenhagen. With a genuine passion for the oceans, he co-founded ZEN OCEANS and now seeks to leverage his domain experience to achieve its vision.
