Following moderator Philippe Holthof’s presentation about the performance of the ferry industry, each panellist gave a short presentation. This was then followed by the interactive panel debate, moderated by Philippe and his colleague Frederik Erdmann. Torben talked about DFDS’ developments and about the consolidation perspectives in the ferry industry. He also commented on the tonnage market, which he anticipated will be tougher for tonnage providers in the future due to the current shipbuilding volumes.
In a newbuildings session, DFDS Jesper Aagesen and Finn Wollesen, MD of ship design company Knud E. Hansen, introduced the EPHESYS SEAWAYS project. When this year’s conference closed, Jesper invited the delegates to next year’s conference, in which DFDS will be deeply involved as it will take place on PEARL SEAWAYS.
Jesper Hartvig Nielsen and Maria Anagnostou from DFDS’ fleet management department were also among the delegates.
