Last Friday was a big day in the history of Samherji and Deutsche Fischfang Union (DFFU) when the two new vessels were formally given a name at a ceremony in Cuxhaven, Germany. The event was even more remarkable since DFFU's last new build came to Cuxhaven in 1990. Harpa Ágústsdóttir wife of Haraldur Grétarsson, DFFU's Managing Director, named Cuxhaven NC 100 in a formal and traditional way. Then Annegret Aeikens wife of Dr. Hermann Onko Aeikens, State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, named Berlin NC 105. In relation to special event DFFU hosted a reception for it´s customers, officials, suppliers, employees and other well-wishers of the company. A total of 400 guests from 17 countries attended. Haraldur Grétarsson, Dr. Ulrich Getsch, Mayor of Cuxhaven and Dr. Hermann Onko Aikens, addressed the guests.
On this occasion, DFFU donated nine ship models to the Windstärke 10 Maritime Museum in Cuxhaven. The models are made after some of the company´s vessels and show the evolution of German fishing industry in the last century, but the oldest model is from 1921. This gift was well received by the museum's management, as the history of the fishing industry in Germany and Cuxhaven city coincide. Cuxhaven was one of Germany's largest fishing ports in the last century, in which many Icelanders landed their catch from the North Sea.
On Saturday the people of Cuxhaven were invited on board to explore the vessels. It was particularly pleasing that around three thousand people used the opportunity.
