On 22nd of March, over 40 YoungShippers met at Parken Hotel Ålesund to learn
more about VARD and how they have adapted to their new markets.
The event started with a presentation of VARDs history and how they adapted
to new markets through research and development, which was held by
previous YoungShipper Kjell Morten Urke. After a short coffee break and a
legstretch, the presentation continued by Severin Ulstein, which presented
Kjell Inge Røkkes Research Expedition Vessel (REV). Additional to their planned
presentation, VARD also brought hydrodynamicist Karl Randle to talk about
some of the CFD-analysis and hydrodynamics of the hull design of the REV
vessel. Very interesting!
After these presentations the YoungShippers were divided into groups to do a
case study using creative thinking strategy “The future 20 years from now,
concept ship or ship related, and it is not to be a part of the Maritime cluster
today”. The groups presented many creative ideas and the winner was
announced after the delightful bacalao dinner at Parken Hotel.
The event was both interesting and fun according to feedback from the
YoungShip participants joining this event.
