In order to achieve a simplification of the organization and a reduction of cost, the board of DSNAME on November 1st decided to merge DSNAME into the DSNAME Foundation. This decision was accepted by the DSNAME Foundation board, and therefore our activities from now on will be in the name of the DSNAME Foundation. You can read more here.
For many years a contribution to DSNAME has been a fixed amount of DKK 1,500 excl. VAT, but with declining revenues on conferences and ads in this publication, DSNAME has been forced to rely on your contributions in order to be able to carry out our activities. The Board has therefore deemed it necessary to ask for increased contributions. Consequently, as of January 1st 2017, we will introduce the terms Contributor and Main Contributor.
For Contributors (minor companies/organisations, the contribution will increase to DKK 2,500 excl. VAT.
Main Contributors will be companies with 50 employees or more and the contribution will be DKK 10,000 excl. VAT. The Main Contributors will be mentioned on our website, in our publication (off cause you may opt-out of the mentioning) and on a roll up at our events. I hope we will have your understanding for the increase, and will continue to support our activities.
We are committed to spearhead communication about development and research within the field of Navel Architecture and Marine Engineering – from your feedback we know that the events are well received, professionally performed and relevant. We appreciate your feedback and through our work we commit ourselves to continue delivering a first class program for the spring season!

Rules and regulations to secure enough propulsion power of ships when operating I bad weather are in conflict with more stringent EEDI requirements in the future. Analytical tools and methods to solve these problems will be presented at the meeting including the latest updating from IMO´s meeting in the Environmental Protection Committee held in July 2017 (MEPC 71).
Finish shipbuilding has always been a very interesting topic due to the diversity of ships built in Finland, such as large ice breakers, large cruise ships and ferries, very specialized vessels such as barge carriers, research vessels and a variety of cargo ships – most of them strengthened for navigation in ice. The history of the Finnish shipbuilding has now been written by the well know maritime author, Bruce Peter, who tell the story of Finish shipbuilding with his normal enthusiasm.
