Scoutbase logo.png

Scoutbase is a startup on a mission to help the maritime and offshore industries to create resilient and safe work and production environments in the face of a complex and ever-changing world. 

Based on contemporary safety science, we are developing an engaging human-centered IT-based tool that makes it easy for organizations to acquire, share and apply relevant knowledge from the field of operations. To create the best-informed solutions to the organization's safety-related challenges and to better identify and assess risk, dynamically. Scoutbase allows for employee involvement in safety development at an entirely new level and invites safety management to work more data-driven and process-supportive. Big data about contextual conditions that shape work are collected systematically and continuously and presented close to real-time. The collection takes place intuitively and easily so that a minimum amount of time is consumed and the data representation quantifies and qualifies the issues and supports a targeted, in-depth, problem understanding and solution process.

SIMAC - Svendborg International Maritime Academy

SIMAC is Denmark’s largest maritime educational institution with 500 students and 90 highly educated and motivated employees. SIMAC offers three fields of studies.

The ship’s officer study programme combines the two classic study programmes shipmaster and marine engineer into one that provides students with a second to none marine education enabling them to operate a modern, technologically advanced merchant vessel.

A modern version of the classic marine engineer study programme. Automation, robot technology, process comprehension and management are the key areas of the adapted marine engineer study programme. Graduates of this programme qualify to work at sea as well as in land-based industries.

Both study programmes provide access to a wide range of jobs in the global shipping industry. The career path of a vast majority of our graduates includes the option of management positions at all levels.

The third opportunity is the shipmaster study programme. Upon completing the necessary time at sea this study programme qualifies the student to work as unrestricted shipmaster.

Besides being a modern, value-managed educational institution, SIMAC conducts comprehensive course activities that generate an annual turnover of more than DKK 9 million. Thus, the academy offers courses within SIMAC’s entire range of expertise, focusing on training in automation as well as bridge and engine-room simulation. SIMAC offers both standardized and customized training, the latter of which are usually designed in close cooperation with the customer. The courses are carried out using modern, educational methods centered upon the customers needs.

The Danish Ships Preservation Trust

På foranledning af Kulturministeriet blev Skibsbevaringsfonden stiftet den 1.maj 1986 af Træskibs-sammenslutningen, Nationalmuseet og Handels- og Søfartsmuseet.

Hermed samledes ekspertisen på et område som, på trods af Danmarks rige maritime kulturhistorie, ikke havde fået det fintmaskede net af hjælp og støtteordninger, der kendtes fra bygningsbevaring på landjorden.

Fondens formål blev i fundatsens paragraf 3 formuleret således:
1) At bidrage til bevaring og restaurering af karakteristiske danske fartøjer.
2) At søge, herunder undtagelsesvis også ved køb, at bevare ejendomsretten til sådanne skibe i Danmark.

Den vigtigste direkte støtteform er rente- og afdragsfrie lån til ejere af bevaringsværdige fartøjer, der som modydelse accepterer en påtegning i skibets skøde. Hermed opnås i overensstemelse med fodens fundats, at det bliver attraktivt for de udvalgte skibe at forblive i dansk eje, og at Skibsbevaringsfonden har indsigt i skibets fortsatte restaurering.

Foruden at formidle lån, yder fonden også en udstrakt rådgivning for andre danske myndigheder f. eks. Søfartsstyrelsen. Bl.a. har fonden været repræsenteret i en arbejdsgruppe om skibes sikkerhed. Et arbejde der har resulteret i en ny forskrift med navnet Teknisk forskrift om bevaringsværdige skibes sikkerhed.

Skibsbevaringsfonden er primært finansieret af Kulturministeriets Tips- og Lottomidler. Andre fonde har dog været involveret i støtte af enkeltprojekter.
