In order to support DFDS’ strategic ambitions, Technical Organisation has established a new Performance Department. It will be managed by Lina Barsøe Rønn Christensen, who has, at the same time, been promoted to Performance Manager.
“Lina’s primary tasks will be to enhance and improve our current monitoring systems that monitor vessels’ performance, and define and set new standards, including target settings to provide sufficient guidance and support for the Climate Action Plans in the coming year,” says Thomas Mørk, VP Technical Organisation.
“She will ensure this is done in close collaboration with other departments, such as Data & Analytics, to ensure we use our operational data in the best possible way to drive continuous improvement. It also aims to reduce actions and behaviours that increase CO2 emissions.
“In close cooperation with the CSR Team, Lina is also representing DFDS on various industry forums, such as IMO and EU, where the standards for emissions for shipping in the coming years are being set.
“Lina is without doubt the best–qualified professional we could find for this role. After finishing her Master’s thesis in naval architecture on evaluating the effects of retrofits, she has proven to be theoretically extremely well-grounded, straight–forward and smart in finding new solutions, even when she is met with scepticism. She is also a great colleague to be around and work with, and I warmly congratulate both Lina on her promotion, and DFDS for being able to attract such talented people. ”
