The debate around the desirability of full vessel autonomy continues, but the systems developed along the way will lead to improved safety and more efficient use of vessels. This award recognises these systems and pilot vessels.
This award recognises projects, concepts and technologies that advance condition monitoring capabilities and move shipping towards the goal of predictive maintenance, improving vessel reliability and reducing off-hire time.
The winning entry will be a vessel of any type, either delivered or substantially upgraded in the past year, that incorporates innovative technical developments that identify it as a landmark vessel. The award will be presented to the ship’s owner.
Recognising a product, process or management approach that has been brought to the marine market (or substantially improved and relaunched) during the previous calendar year and can demonstrate emissions reduction.
A unique 2 day conference to be held on 4-5 September in Bergen, Norway. This event will examine how vessels of all sizes can achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption, maintenance costs and emissions.
