News introduced during DSM2022
Beside the Commercial Meet and Financing Meet we introduced two new meetings: DSM Fishing Meet and DSM Fire Safety Meet.
DSM Fishing Meet – offered interesting presentations from both research and management and a panel discussion with young fishermen on the theme Sustainable future fisheries. The aim of the seminar was to give the audience a better insight into the everyday work of a fisherman, and the role of fisheries in the food supply chain. Possibilities and challenges for the future fisheries will be addressed, as will the importance of a stable management system. Among the speakers; Minister for rural affairs, Anna-Caren Sätherberg, Mats Svensson, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management and Linnea Engström, MSC Scandinavia & Baltic Sea. Take part of the DSM Fishing Meet here.
DSM Fire Safety Meet – During the day participants got both theoretical and practical knowledge on how to prevent and respond to onboard fire in new fuels, but also in regulations, insurance and the newest research in the area.
The day was directed to both onboard personal and those interested in fire safety. Since the crew onboard is of outmost importance to prevent fire, and is the responsible fire brigade onboard, DSM and Nordkompass reached out with a special welcome to those of you working at sea to participate, at Donsö or via the live streaming. Among the speakers; Jonas Bjelfvenstam Director General for the Swedish Transport Agency, Sifis Papageorgiou, Project Officer of EMSA with over 25 years of experience, Julia Burgén, researcher and expert at human factors in fire safety, RISE and Ola Willstrand battery expert of RISE.
The ongoing work towards a climate neutral transport sector means that alternative fuels, new energy sources and different technologies are developed, evaluated and implemented. The risk profiles therefore change for vessels, the cargo (i.e. trucks, cars) as well as for the whole system of logistics and requires knowledge on how to manage fire safety. You can take part of the seminar here. Take part of the activity in the harbour here.
