In 2022, the new buildings will be ready to educate future leaders for The Blue Denmark and a number of other innovative industries. In addition to the new SIMAC, the winning team has also prepared a masterplan for how a new district at the North Quay - with housing and businesses - can take shape. It includes a specific proposal for the reopening of Kobberbækken, which will provide new urban green areas and secure this part of Svendborg against any potential extreme rainfall in the future.
The new facilities feature teaching rooms of various sizes, large common areas, two auditoriums, several laboratories, a simulator center with virtual learning environments, staff quarters with meeting rooms for the staff - a total of 12.500 m2 educational program divided into four floors.
The architectural competition was carried out by the SMUC Foundation (Svendborg Maritime Education Centre Foundation), which was founded with the purpose of owning, developing and building the new SIMAC, as well as operating land and buildings in cooperation with SIMAC. Among other things, the project has been made possible thanks to a substantial donation of DKK 100 million from A.P. Møller and his wife Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller’s Foundation for Public Purposes.
