Welcome to the new era in European ship supply!

It is a distinct privilege to welcome you to the new webpage of OCEAN.

Here you will find all the relevant information about our organization, our industry, and the European policy environment in which our industry operates. I am especially proud of the regular News Articles written by our membership, covering a wide range of interesting topics. They keep you informed about our vibrant industry, what we do and who we are. What's even better, as our webpage is mobile enabled, you can read about OCEAN anywhere, anytime.

On 14 June 2016 we celebrated our 40th anniversiary in Brussels.  It was 1976 that we came together to raise awareness of our industry and particularities.  It was a special event, which we will remember for a long time to come. I welcome you to join us on our journey!

Happy Surfing and Happy Birthday OCEAN!
