The Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority Andreas Nordseth recently attended the naming ceremony of Evergas’ new gas tanker that is to carry petrochemical gas for use in the plastic industry. It is Evergas’ first vessel under the Danish flag.

“By having more ships under the flag, we ensure continued ship owner activities in Denmark for the benefit of employment and Blue Denmark as a whole," said  Andreas Nordseth. "We are pleased that Evergas has chosen the Danish flag for its newest vessel and consider it a recognition that Denmark is an attractive place in which to do maritime business. It is an example of the success of our efforts.”

Blue Denmark, a term used for all maritime companies and professions in Denmark, is well-known for combining quality shipping – understood as a high health, safety and social standard as well as focus on environmental and climate protection – with good competitive framework conditions.

Last year, the Danish Parliament amended the provisions on ship registration as a follow-up on the Plan for Growth in Blue Denmark. The amendment made it easier for foreign ship owners to establish themselves with ships flying the Danish flag. The purpose of the legislative amendment is, inter alia, to make it attractive to maritime business in Denmark. It is possible for a foreign company to own the ships for as long as the company has activities and control over the ship in Denmark. The activity can be either technical or commercial operation.
