We would not have won that contract and experienced our current development without the participation of EKF
”Without the participation of EKF we would not have been able to bid for that contract, and we would not have won it either,” says Knud Sant, Chairman of the Board at OMT.
OMT is a spin-off from the former Odense Steel Shipyard specialised in ship design. After much legwork OMT was given the opportunity to bid for the complete design of offshore patrol ships for the Canadian navy.
”We were allowed to participate in the bidding because the Danish navy showed the Canadians one of the newest frigates designed and built at Lindø. In the final round of bidding there were three qualified companies. We were clearly the underdog as we were the smallest company, and we were only two years old with a modest capital base,” says Knud Sant.
