Desan Shipyard is going to participate in the Posidonia 2016. This 29th international trade fair will be held from 06-10 June 2016 in Metropolitan Expo Centre located at the new Athens International Airport Complex in Athens/GREECE.

Posidonia provides direct access to Greek shipping and the owners of the largest fleet under the control of any one national group, dominating the newbuilding orderbook and S&P market.

The Greek owned fleet continues its impressive growth. Over a twelve month period leading up to Posidonia 2014, over 25m dwt was added, the largest annual increase since 2008. Of some 700 shipping companies based in the Athens area, about 70 run fleets of 1m dwt or above.

Posidonia 2014 had 1,843 exhibitors and 20,000 buyers from 96 countries,.

At end 2014, orders stood at $29bn, some 550 ships totalling 50m dwt. Deliveries from 94 entities averaged two ships per week, accounting for 11.5% of the world’s orderbook. That included some 39 LNG carriers. Greek presence in the S&P markets also continued apace, accounting for near 40% of the global investment in secondhand ships and again placing Greek owners in the top position*.

We would like to invite you to visit us at stand no 3.113- Hall 3 in Metropolitan Exhibition Centre between 6-10 of June 2016 at Posidonia Exhibition in Athens, Greece.
