The Frigate HDMS NIELS JUEL visited Baltimore and Chesapeake Bay in November. During the visit, there were many activities with the Embassy and its stakeholders. HDMS NIELS JUEL is the Danish Navy’s newest warship, only handed over in August. It’s the third and last of the IVER HUITFELDT class of large frigates that, along with two similar ABSALON-class combat support ships, will make up Denmark’s primary naval force for the next three decades.
The largest event was Thursday in the ship’s hangar deck. The Embassy of Denmark, the American-Danish Business Council (ADBC) and Naval Team Denmark collaborated on the ADBC Annual Meeting and reception onboard. (Please see the article on the reception and meeting in the newsletter.)
Naval Team Denmark (see article in this newsletter) assembled companies that supplied products carried on Niels Juel or that would be of interest to the US military and defense industry. Companies from Naval Team Denmark with exhibits in the hanger deck included:
Resen Waves focusing on providing power to replace expense diesel on islands and coastal areas.
- Terma – an aerospace, defense, security and surveillance company
- Systematic – that provides IT solutions to the public sector and health care as well as defense and intelligence/national security sectors.
- Weibel – a global leader in advanced Doppler radar systems.
Other companies participating with Naval Team Denmark were: Tencate, Desmi, Logimatic, Man Diesel, Odense Maritime, Eiva and Navicon.
The Copenhagen Solutions exhibit focused on, how cities, in particular, play an important role in securing sustainable development. Thus, sustainable societies must start with sustainable cities and sustainable solutions. To advance the quest for more sustainable cities, Copenhagen Solutions displayed some of the best urban solutions in the Danish capital.
