Icebreaker Ymer

The Swedish Maritime sector is developing very positive. And as a growing sector the need for attention from the young generation is an important issue. In order to inform about the possibilities within the Swedish maritime Sector a number of different parties within the sector cooperates to market these possibilities. Among the parties is "Port of Sweden" an industry and employer organisation covering 50 different Ports in Sweden.

The purpose is to inform regarding the Swedish Maritime Sector and to market it under the name "Sjöfartskaravanen".

As one very visible element in the campaign the icebreaker Ymer pays a visit to 18 different Swedish Ports. During the visit it is possible to get onboard Ymer. First Port of call on this tour is Malmö on July 22nd. A visit to Ymer was possible from 10 o'clock until 4 o'clock. While Ymer was in port a number of representatives from the various maritime sectors explained the possibilities that their company gave. A possibility a large number of visitors took advantage of.
Port agent for Ymer was Hasting Agency AB.

It looks as though the round-tour from Malmö July 22nd to Luleå August 18th will be a great success i.e. if we judge from the experience of the Malmö visit.

At the pictures you can see the large ice breaker Ymer a quay 600 in the Malmö Freeport. Next to Ymer is the container terminal and you can also see the large Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) London Highway at one of the four New Cars terminals at CMP. In port were also two vessels from United European Car Carriers (UECC) Autorunner and Autoline. Also full block train was in port. Handling of these vessels gave visitors of Sjöfartskaravanen an idea of the busy harbour. Also the two different Nordö vessels that departed and arrived were very visible for the visitors.
