Open Ship DSM2023

Sailing ships from the 18th century as well as state of the art product tankers for the future. The attendees of DSM2023 can visit a range of different vessels in the port of Donsö.

An important part of DSM is the vessels visiting Donsö harbour, offering the attendees of the fair a chance to get a closer look at what shipping really is about. During DSM2023, the plan is that a wide range of ships will be open for visits during the three days, from sailing ships to fishing vessels and modern product tankers from some of the shipping companies on the island.

THE MAIN ATTRACTION among the vessels will be the Götheborg of Sweden, the world’s largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship and a 18th century replica of the original Götheborg that sank in 1745. After a year long expedition around Europe, visiting nineteen ports and welcoming 90,000 visitors onboard, Götheborg arrived to her home port Göteborg  in the beginning of June to participate in the city’s 400-year jubilee. The ship will make the short sailing to Donsö on the 27th of August.

ANOTHER SAILING SHIP visiting Donsö during DSM2023 is the Kvartsita, built 1945 at Holms yard in Råå outside Helsingborg to ship raw materials for the ceramic manufacturer Höganäsbolaget. Originally she was built as a galeas-rigged sailing ship with motor, but was rebuilt in Norway 1953 with the masts replaced by a crane and a wheelhouse in the stern. In 1986, the Swedish association För Fulla Segel bought her and renovated her thoroughly to a schooner and a modern sail training ship with Skaftö in Bohuslän as home port.

A TOTAL OF three product tankers from the shipowners on the island of Donsö will participate during DSM2023. One of the NEOT-chartered sister vessels Tern Island or Tern Fors from Terntank, will berth at Donsö deep harbour during the first day of the fair. The vessels was delivered in December 2021 and February 2022 and during DSM2022, the Tern Fors was christenedin Donsö harbour.

DURING THE SECOND day of DSM2023, Furetank’s Fure Vinga will arrive at the island. The 17,999 dwt vessel is number seven in a series of sister vessels consisting of eight delivered vessels and nine in order. Fure Vinga was delivered by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in January 2021. The vessel has Swedish flag, ice class 1A and a tank capacity of 20,306 cubic metres in twelve epoxy coated tanks.

THE THIRD PRODUCT tanker visiting DSM2023 will be the Preem-chartered vessel Olympus from Sirius Shipping, arriving at the island on the second day of the fair. The vessel was built in 2006 and was during 2010 equipped with a Catamiser, developed by Gesab in Gothenburg. It combines an SCR catalyst, which removes NOx from the exhaust gases, and an economiser, which recovers and recycles heat from exhaust gases, fitted together into a single unit. According to Sirius, the ship’s NOx emissions are reduced by 90 per cent and the total annual CO2 emission reduction is around 300 tonnes.

DURING DSM2023, NOS, Northern Offshore Services, will attend with one or more vessels. They plan to visit the fair with the 46 metre long vessel Northern Skagerrak, a service vessel in Port of Gothenburg converted last year to a hybrid for battery powered operations. Northern Skagerrak is mainly collecting sludge from arriving ships in the Port of Gothenburg. It runs mostly using electric power although there is also an auxiliary engine that runs on the renewable fuel HVO.
