2015 was challenging for the DMA
2015 was a busy year for the Danish Maritime Authority, that reached many achievements, ranging from growth to safety. This is according to the Danish Maritime Authority's annual report, which has just been published. Despite difficult market conditions for the industry, the gross tonnage of Danish ship registries grew and 2015 was a good year for safety on Danish ships.
"2015 was in many ways a challenging year for the Danish Maritime Authority, but we achieved nice results," says the Danish Maritime Authority's director, Andreas Nordseth.
The annual report includes a number of important milestones that the Danish Maritime Authority reached in 2015. Among other were the re-election to the Council of IMO for the period 2016-2017, issuing maritime growth advisors to China and Ghana, the organization of Danish Maritime Days and the Danish Maritime Forum and the study of the growth opportunities in the offshore sector.
The financial year ended with a small surplus of 0,1 million kroner. The total score of the performance for 2015 was 93,75 out of 100, which is considered a good result.
Internally, the last part of 2015, was marked by the decision to move headquarters to Korsør. In 2016 there will be a focus on preparing an effective movement while retaining critical skills and maintaining a safe operation.
