Happy New Year
December 31, 2018
HDMS Peder Skram and the entire crew wish everyone a happy 2019. In the new year we will face a number of exciting challenges. We are going to run a museum with three ships. In addition to HDMS Peder Skram, the submarine HDMS Sælen and the torpedomissile boat HDMS Sehested will be a part of Denmark's oldest cold war museum, centrally located in Copenhagen harbor. How come the military area, naval station Copenhagen will include in the future, come to look like. To what extent will the Ministry of Defence maintain and renovate the part of Nyholm that remains the property of the Navy and where we will continue to operate our museum. What will happen at Rehfshaleøen, where plans have been presented for a new large city area in Copenhagen and where interested people want to build a maritime experience center. It really will be an exciting 2019.

New about HDMS Sehested and HDMS Sælen

November 6, 2018
The foundation are negotiates with the National Museum to take over the operation of the submarine, HDMS Sælen and the torpedomissile boat, HDMS Sehested. In the future, the National Museum do not want the two vessels to be part of the War Museum in Copenhagen, which is the new name for the Orlogsmuseet / Tøjhusmuseet. When the plans for Nyholm are in place and we know where the dividing line must go between the part of Nyholm that is to be sold and the part the Ministry of Defence wants to preserve, it is also the plan that the ownership of the two museum ships will be transferred to the Foundation Peder Skram. No later than 2023, when the current defense settlement must be fully implemented and the plans for Nyholm must be implemented to.

75 years ago The Danish Navy scuttled itself

August 29, 2018

Today, 75 years ago, the majority of the Danish Navy was scuttled, to avoid to fall into the hands of the German occupation forces. The Danish government did not want to meet the German demands for death penalty for sabotage, etc. When the government rejected that the Danish Navy and Army could defend themselves against attacks from Germans forces, the commander-in-chief of the Danish Navy, admiral Vedel, ordered that the ships should either try to escape to Sweden, which was neutral, or they should be scuttled by their own crew, which happened for the majority of the ships. Some reached Sweden. The photo of the coast battleship Peder Skram, scuttled at Holmen, the naval base at Copenhagen, below the old mast crane, went around the world as a confirmation of the Danes' resistance against Nazi Germany.

It is quite true
April 2, 2018.
At Hans Cristian Andersen's birthday we can see that the adventure can come true. For more than 10 years ago, we have tried to get one of the frigate gas turbines back and placed on board again. The four gas turbines from HDMS Peder Skram and HDMS Herluf Trolle was transferred to the US Cost Guard after the decommision of the frigates in 1992.The gas turbines had been used in the frigates of the USS Hamilton class. These frigates are now decommisioned and the opportunity to get one of them back again show up. With great help from Shipco Transport Inc. the gas turbine now is on its way across the Atlantic and arrives to Denmark at the end of April. Delivered free of charge from Shipco Transport Inc. When the gas turbine is going to be installed, it must be lowered down through one of the chimnies. The Technical manager Søren Munk Madsen and his crew expect the entire operation to be completed within the frigate stay at the shipyard in Søby.
This was a real and true adventure and on the same day as Hans Christian Andersen's birthday and the anniversary of the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801.
