Wind mill ships will not join DIS

Letting wind mill installation ships join the Danish International Ship Register is not part of the government's maritime growth initiative this time around, as it would require a change to the EU's maritime state subsidy legilastion, a change that the government is working to achieve.

The government's maritime growth initiative does not include letting ships for wind mill installation, as well as other specialized ships related to the installation, join the Danish Internation Ship Register (DIS).

"The offshore wind mill industry is very interesting for the entire maritime sector, and the fact that we partake in it. But it has not been included in this proposal, because of the finances in relation to DIS and the EU's state subsidy rules, which do not allow it. We have to try to find a way to do it in the long term," said Minister for Business and Growth, Anette Vilhelmsen, to ShippingWatch.
