Current challenges, regulations and developments in shipping and offshore industries were once again discussed by maritime and fire safety experts at the "Fachtagung Brandschutz im Schiffbau" in Hamburg earlier this month. Turn-out this year was at its highest to date, with ca. 200 participants from 100 organisations, 15 speakers and 18 exhibitors, including German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure , Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore, TÜV NORD Systems GmbH & Co. KG , Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V., PHOENIX TESTLAB GmbH and DNV GL.
The annual 2-day conference on fire protection for shipbuilding has now become an established part of Germany’s shipping industry calendar. This year DMT hosted the event for the 8th time and we were extremely pleased to welcome visitors from Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy and Switzerland. A big thank you to all who participated in the varied and informative discussions, we hope to see you, and some new faces, again next year. Stay posted - save the date for 2021 coming soon.
