HDMS Peder Skram - (F-352)

HDMS Peder Skram F352 pic2 wikimedia.orgHDMS Peder Skram (F352) was a Peder Skram class frigate in the Royal Danish Navy which was in use until 1990. It is now docked at Holmen in Copenhagen where it serves as a privately operated museum ship along with the ships of the Royal Danish Naval Museum. The ship is named after Peder Skram, a 16th-century Danish admiral.

Peder Skram was an innovative design using a hybrid propulsion system, a combined gas turbine and diesel approach (CODOG). Peder Skram underwent significant refit in 1970 and a midlife update 1977–78.

In 1982 Peder Skram was involved in the accidental launch of a Harpoon missile, fortunately without inflicting bodily harm.

Peder Skram was decommissioned in 1990, internal installations were auctioned off as scrap two years later. In the mid-1990s it was decided to restore her as a museum ship.

Peder Skram is today operated as a museum ship on a volunteer basis. It is open to visitors every day from 11am to 5pm in the school summer and autumn vacations and in all weekends in June and August.
