Cassen Eils


The Cassen Eils shipping company

The shipping company was founded in 1952. Captain Cassen Eils and his partner Ludwig Visser were the first shipping company to start regular services to and from Helgoland after the war. Cassen Eils is still the oldest active Helgoland shipping company. Even though it has been integrated into the “EMS” AG group as a subsidiary since 2010, it has been able to retain its independence. The company is based in Cuxhaven. The company is committed to the protection of nature and offers environmentally friendly crossings to Helgoland. The LNG ship MS Helgoland was awarded the Blue Angel environmental seal in 2018.
