Michael Johns, Area Sales Manager Marine Division at Zeppelin Power Systems GmbH & Co. KG: "We have been exhibiting in this unique networking event for six editions. We simply have to be there."

    Romania is truly a forward thinking maritime nation. During the official opening ceremony of Europort Romania, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Romania; Mrs Ronner-Grubačić stated: "Romanian ports are developing, and so is the shipbuilding industry. We need to compliment the Romanian wharfs’ accomplishments in today’s technologically advanced industry.
