DENMARK – SWITZERLAND - News in over the holiday period that Nils S. Andersen, CEO of transport conglomerate and the world’s largest container shipping group A.P. Moller – Maersk, was taken into hospital on the 30th December after suffering illness and has been successfully operated on.

Whilst holidaying in Switzerland Mr Anderson was found to be suffering from a leaky heart valve believed to be the result of a weakness or possibly an infection and after his condition deteriorated he received surgery to replace the damaged cardiac valve.

Maersk say he is likely to be absent for about a month whilst recovering and that board chairman Michael Pram Rasmussen will liaise with the groups other directors until Mr Andersen’s return.

All at Handy Shipping Guide wish Mr Andersen a speedy recovery and trust he will be back at his desk shortly.
