NTHS 2018


Presenting: Philip Holt

Have you participated in NTHS?

Jep, two times in Stockholm and Norway.


What is your best memory from NTHS?

Last year in Norway we visited a newly constructed diving vessel which was very interesting as we were allowed all over the vessel and could ask all the questions we wanted a really get at sense of the scale. Furthermore, the yard were located in a very beautiful inlet – what a place it would be to work!


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

I think it would be hard to increase the number of company visits as the planned program already is pretty booked, but I hope that we could have a bit better accommodation as well as better possibilities for showing interesting landmarks/sights in the cities that we visit.


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

I hope that NTHS 71 will provide the delegates with memories of the many different facets of the Danish maritime industry, but the suppliers in Northern Jutland, the offshore wind, oil & gas industry in Western Jutland, the story of what the Lindø yard have evolved into as well as remembering the many Danish shipowners in Copenhagen.


Why do you want to become a marine engineer?

I do very much enjoy the complexity and yet creativity involved in maritime engineering. The creativity needed for combining major components and equipment for the most optimum solution is a huge driving factor for me. Previously I have worked offshore and very much enjoy being at sea, and I hope to have to change to go once in a while.
