SPECIAL: DANISH MARITIME FAIR 2018
MANY NEW EXHIBITORS AT THE DANISH MARITIME FAIR The maritime industry is indeed a very international one, and the same goes for this year’s Danish Maritime Fair. Even though Danish companies naturally are represented in higher numbers, there are also a lot of foreign companies present. For many of these foreign companies, it is their first time joining the fair.
mong these foreign companies is Hat-San Shipyard, which is one of the four Turkish shipyards present at the Danish Maritime fair. - We would like to enter the Danish market for building larger ships, says Engin Aybar, CEO of Hat-San Shipyard - We look forward to meet the Danish shipping companies and to negotiate business concerning buildings of Tanker and Freight ships, says the CEO Turkish, Polish and Baltic shipyards have for many years played the role of subcontractors to Danish shipyards. The foreign yards build the hull, after which the Danish shipyards handle endowment and completion of the vessels. A division of labor that will possibly be challenged in the future. danish maritime magazine

One of the companies that have attended several times before is Granly Diesel.
