Wärtsilä – Gold Sponsor

Hello there Göran Österdahl!

Wärtsilä supports DSM17 as Gold Sponsor. What contributed to make this decision?
Donsö Shipping Meet is an interesting event in a very special location. The event attracts the market, and more and more people finds its way to Donsö Shipping Meet. Wärtsilä finds this kind of events interesting, differently and fruitful.

Wärtsilä has been participating since DSM started in 2009. What makes you come back year after year?
Historically every event has been better than expected. The event is growing, the people the location and the weather has just been perfect. Donsö Shipping Meet also gives the possibility to meet the market, not only operational crew but a wider audience, or every year the audience both in number and from business angles has increased.

What differs DSM from other Shipping events?
In short more of a family feeling. People independent suppliers, partners, owners, etc. gets closer together compared to other events

How would you describe DSM in one sentence?
A small place with big audience from the total cluster gathered on a nice island.

What is your best memory from DSM2015?
Must be the happiness of all participants.

What are your expectations for DSM17?
That we can get closer to our partners, and find new partners to work with. But not to forget a nice sunshine on the island.

And finally, what is your best maritime memory?
I was once in China to sell maritime equipment to a shipyard. There was no shipyard existing but only plans and drawings of a shipyard to become. They had already collected an order from a Swedish owner. The negotiations took place in a dry fish factory and there was only women walking around and eagerly watching a white man standing in a suit out on the yard. When we met the owner of the fish factory I could not avoid asking why he decided to invest in a shipyard. His reply still stays in my head. “Well that is easy. Look around. You see we have too many women here. We needed to get a more equal share of gender in the company and we found ship building is a very heavy male dominated segment. Starting shipbuilding would equalize the share of gender in the Corporation”- All kind of reasons out there to start ship building, hahaa…
