Karl Dose (continued) building Combine, referred to the fact that the DDR was participating at SMM for the fourth time since 1982. It was, he said, an important forum for the East German ship- building industry (which became an associate member of the German
Association of Shipbuilding and
Marine Technology this year), and the country's maritime transport and port sectors.
The DDR will be presenting three basic types of cargo ships at SMM: a 17,175-ton multipurpose container- ship, built by the Neptun-Werft in
Rostock; a 17,050-ton container- ship, built by Warrow-Werft in
Warnemunde; and a 14,190-ton uni- versal containership, built by the
Mathias-Thes-Werft in Wismar.
In addition, the DDR will be offering ship's equipment, rationali- zation concepts, a software package and lifesaving gear. At a press conference, Helmut F.H. Hansen, chairman of the Port of Hamburg marketing and public relations board and of the SMM exhibitors' advisory council, noted that this 30- year-old exhibition has grown into an event of international signifi- cance. Mr. Hansen cited the suc- cess of SMM '88: over 30,000 vis- itors from 48 countries and 450 exhibitors from 24 countries.
Dr. Norbert Henke, chairman of the German Association of Ship- building and Marine Technology, expressed his hope that there would be only one German shipbuilding industry in the future.
At the same press conference, Dr.
Norbert Kliemann, managing di- rector of C. Plath Navigation-Auto- mation and a member of the board of the working group for the Marine and Offshore Equipment Industries in the German Machinery and Plant
Manufacturers Association, pointed out that equipment manufacturers accounted for up to 70 percent of the value of a ship. Furthermore, the economic efficiency of ship's op- erations was largely dependent on the quality of the equipment manu- factuers' technical concepts.
Besides an extensive display of shipbuilding and marine equip- ment, the congress will focus on the production and transportation of raw materials from an environmen- tal standpoint.
A top international attendance is expected to be at the congress.
