Two consecutive years with a red bottom line and a 2016 poised for yet another major loss at Semco Maritime now means that the company is receiving additional capital from its owner C.W. Obel in order to pad net equity.

In December 2016, DKK 150 million (USD 21 million) was put into the Danish company, which is a subcontractor to especially the oil and gas industry.
