DMI is confidently competing for the Arctic

“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.
