NTHS 2018

DENMARK

Presenting: Heðin Gunnarsstein Poulsen

Have you participated in NTHS?

No, this is my first time and i'm really looking forward to it!

 

What is your best memory from NTHS?

As this is my first time I can only tell from the planning. It has been a pleasure to be planning NTHS with Nul-kryds. The best NTHS memories are those where we have been sitting and discussing and planning meanwhile eating together.

 

If NTHS had an unlimited funds, what would the 71st NTHS be like?

First we would meet in a newly built ship just for NTHS and it would only be used once. The name of the vessel will be NTHS 2018 as we need a new ship for different years. Each year the new ship breaks the record for the biggest ship in the world. In the Engine room there's not only engines and so on, but also a brewery so there's unlimited amounts of beer. When the time is up for company visits, the "in-built" helicopters onboard the ship will transport us to the location of the company.

 

What do you hope the participants will remember about NTHS in Denmark

I hope that every participant after NTHS 2018 has gained some new knowledge, made some new friends and that the NTHS-network hopefully has helped some of the participants in the future. And not to forget that everybody had a great party!

 

Why do you want to become a marine engineer?

I'm really interested into Maritime Engineering. Both when it comes to the science that lies behind it but also that there is, as it seems right now, a great future in the field. Transportation through the ocean is the cheapest and most sustainable way. So I want to be a part of a team that uses the resources in the ocean on the most sustainable way.
