The Danish company Vestergaard Group will participate in DSM13 with a stand in the exhibition and look forward to meeting all the shipowners for a plesant chat.

We will enter Donsö in an old wooden ship, built in 1891, that after 92 years in operation as fishing ship was changed to a museum ship and now participates in different shows and events.

During the exhibition both in daytime and during the evening the participants on DSM13 are welcome on board the ship where representatives from Vestergaard Group and ship crew are ready to show you the ship, and serve refreshment.

On the deck there will also be placed a model of a Ballast Water Treatment unit from Erma First and we are ready to tell you more about cleaning the ballast water.

Ballast Water Treatment will be a coming issue for all ships crossing oceans and has a high priority in the IMO organization.
