Danish Ministry of Defense goes shopping in Norway

Maritime Partner AS in Ålesund has signed a contract for the delivery of nine fast-going rescue boats (SAR) with the "Danish Defense Acquisition and Logistics Organization" (Forsvarets Materielltjeneste), a sub-division of the Danish Ministry of Defense. 

The boats are of Alusafe 1070 design. This design was developed by Maritime Partner, in close collaboration with the Danish Maritime Safety Administration (Farvandsvæsenet), and the first boat of the design was delivered as early as 2010. Since then, three more boats have been delivered to the same customer, before Danish Maritime Safety Administration was abolished by royal decree in October 2011, and became a part of the Ministry of Defense.

"We are very glad that based on the experiences they have made with the previous four boats we have delivered to the Danish Maritime Safety Administration (Farvandsvæsenet), they now have decided to order a further nine boats." says CEO of Maritime Partner, Peder R. Myklebust. The boats will be operating from different rescue stations along the coast of Denmark, and will help improve safety for both private boaters as well as the fishing fleet.
