Hempel sponsoring and speaking at Danish Maritime Days in hometown Copenhagen
Hempel A/S is excited to be taking part in the highly anticipated Danish Maritime Days (DMD) event next week. Hempel A/S will be participating at the DMD Technical Conference, held in cooperation with Danish Maritime, on the 7 & 8 October. Fouling Control Marketing Manager, Claes Skat-Roerdam, will discuss “How and why hull coatings can improve your bottom line” on Wednesday 7 October, highlighting Hempel’s latest innovative technology and products.
Claes Skat-Roerdam believes that what is key for shipping operators is “Finding the right product for the individual ship. For each vessel, we must take into account the typical sailing speed, sailing route, lay-up periods, idle periods and activity level. Hempel’s aim is to provide and develop coatings that deliver the optimum solution for all our customers’ activities”.
On the 8 October, Group Sales Coordinator, Kim Scheibel, will also be presenting at the DMD Technical Conference during the morning session “Optimisation and servitization”, focusing on “Hempel: Process Optimisation”. Full details on the conference can be found here – http://www.danishmaritimedays.

Global Product Manager, Henrik Dyrholm, will be speaking on “Continuous improvement: The next 100 years”, during the “Technical and nautical ship management”session on Thursday 8 October. A fitting presentation as 2015 marks Hempel’s 100 Year anniversary.
