We are sad to note the recent passing of Dr. Ing Gelu Kahu, just a few weeks before his 89th birthday.
Dr. Kahu was the first Director of the state-owned research and design institute for shipbuilding ‘Institutul de Cercetare Stiintifica si Inginerie Technologica pentru Constructii Navale’ – later to become S.C. ICEPRONAV S.A. Dr Kahu was an early promoter of use of advanced computer technology in ship design and he maintained an active interest in the Romanian shipbuilding industry.
