DMI is confidently competing for the Arctic

Competition is keen when the big international players offer weather services to the maritime industry in Greenland and the Arctic. Yet DMI has crucial experience, believes Carsten Kofoed, section leader of The Danish Meteorological Institute’s Maritime Service, which is considering opening a new office in Greenland.

DMI’s competitors in weather services in Greenland may be larger, but they do not have the same level of experience as DMI. Therefore, DMI will continue to be a strong player in the market for weather services in Greenland and the Arctic, believes section leader of DMI’s Maritime Service, Carsten Kofoed.

“In activity we are leading in Greenland even though our competitors are larger private companies. We have probably been involved in supply of most of what is going on up there, and we have a large share of the market because we have done weather forecasts for Greenland for many, many years,” says Carsten Kofoed to ShippingWatch.
