  • Off-duty » Tyrannical billionaire not shipping magnate
    American cartoon The Simpsons have caricatured the series most unsympathetic figure the tyrannical billionaire C Montgomery Burns on the Norwegian shipping magnate Fred Olsen The similarity between the two is also striking The same eyes the same bald head and lanky figure the giant fortune and tough business method But despite the many similarities it is pure coincidence says one of the comic creators Matt Groening The figure C Montgomery Burns is made from pure fantasy and any resemblance to Fred Olsen is unintentional The assumption that C Montgomery Burns is modeled after Fred Olsen was otherwise so strong that Fred Olsen reportedly had started to believe in it himself At home there has been some rumors that it was the late shipping magnate Mærsk Mc Kinney Møller who was inspiration for the character C Montgomery Burns Source Berlingske Tidende Maritime Denmark Front page Copyright Maritime Denmark Breaking News Special Transportation through Storebælt Last B W new construction sold for scrap Chinese warships visit Copenhagen The royal ship has begun expedition Holiday back in Aalborg after 30 years Drones can be heading to the Navy The Blue Denmark on Folkemødet New Chairman of MHI Vestas The Royal Yacht out of

  • Off-duty » The Stige ferry will be closed down
    with great sadness that S I Stige Ferry has decided that the ferry operation cannot continue This happens in spite of wide political support financial support and a great voluntary effort by the residents in the Stige region The explanation is that the timeline for providing full financial backing for the ferry s continued operation has not been met The goal was to raise 3 3 million kroner for two new ferries powered by solar panels before the beginning of 2015 Sadly they have not succeeded in reaching their goal Odense Municipality had otherwise guaranteed an operating subsidy of 600 000 kroner a year Stige Ferry is Denmark s smallest shipping company and is owned by the Odense Municipality The company has a fleet of two small ferries Færgehans and Stige II The ferries sail between Stige and Bogø north of Odense The channel is almost 80 meters wide It takes approximately 1 2 minutes to cross and saves passengers a detour of 6 to 10 km Since April 2014 we have applied to a number of funds The decision was thus out of our hands Subsequently since August 2014 we have been in dialogue with one of the major foundations Unfortunately the fund did not process our application before the deadline for the cooperation agreement with Odense Municipality which expired on December 15th That resulted in a lack of the financial resources that the project required says Allan Milé chairman of S I Stige ferry On Sunday August 24th the Stig ferry set a record with 1 241 passengers in a single day The high number og passenger was due to a party that marked the 100th anniversary of the family Nielsen s takeover of the lease on the small ferry Source TV2 Fyn stigeonline dk Front page Copyright
