Monday, November 08, 2010

The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) awarded their highest honor, the David W. Taylor Medal for notable achievement in naval architecture or marine engineering, to ABS Senior Vice President of Technology Peter Tang-Jensen at the society’s Annual Banquet during the SNAME Annual Meeting and Expo in Seattle, Wash.

A well-respected member of the maritime community with more than 35 years of experience in shipbuilding design and engineering, Tang-Jensen has been providing strategic leadership for the classification society’s research and product development efforts since 2006.

The ABS technology leader and former Executive Vice President of Odense Steel Shipyard, Ltd. earned a Master’s of Science degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and attended Harvard Business School as well as the Centre Europeen d’Education Permanente (CEDEP) in Fontainebleau, France for advanced business management training.

Tang-Jensen is a member of numerous boards and committees including: Member of the Technical Advisory Committee for the Joint European Shipbuilding Organization, Deputy Chairman for Odense University College of Engineering and Member of the Board for the Independent Scandinavian Technical Research and Investigation Institute, Force Technology. He has also been a member of the ABS Technical Committee since 1997. This special purpose committee provides the society with direct industry input in order to guide and direct policies and Rule-making procedures. Tang-Jensen is a frequent speaker at key industry conferences and technical programs.

Tang-Jensen becomes the second ABS staff member to receive this award. In 2004, SNAME bestowed the award to then recently retired ABS Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Donald Liu, who pioneered the dynamic loading approach (DLA) to assess the structural strength of vessels.
