DANISH SHIP OF THE YEAR This year, four ships are competing for the title of ’Danish Ship of the Year’, an award instituted by the Media Group Maritime Denmark in 2014. The winner of the prestigious title will be revealed at the Danish Maritime Fair on 10.00 am, Friday May 4. The only requirements for ships entering the competition are, that they were built in Denmark and / or are owned by or operated by a Danish shipping company. Ships that have been in operation for more than 18 months do not qualify. Within the last few months, our editorial office has received numerous suggestions as to which ships should be considered for the award. But it did not take a long time to find the final four contestants: • Maersk Master - AHTS Starfish-class • Maersk Installer - SSV Stingray-class • Rockhall – Fishing trawler build at Karstensens Shipyard • Vistula Mærsk – Icebreaking feeder vessel Fate now lies in the hands of the four-man grand committee, headed by the highly respected shipengineer Hans Otto Kristensen. They will determine which of the four nominated ships will become Danish Ship of the Year.
Besides Hans Otto Kristensen the committee consists of: • Thomas Knudsen, MAN Diesel & Turbo • Henrik Bach, DNV • Per Jørgensen, Consultant, previously. Maskinmestrenes Forening
• 2 016: OV Bøkfjord – multi-function vessel build at Hvide Sande Shipyard With the title follows the artwork “The blue Tour du monde”, created by the Belgian / French artist Phil Billen. The artwork migrates between the winners.
The previous winners of the title are: • 2014: Fjord Lines LNG-ferry Bergensfjord. • 2015: Prinsesse Isabella - LNG-ferry Samsø Rederi
