WR Systems (WR) of Norfolk, Virginia, is delighted to announce that its revolutionary Emsys Emissions Monitoring System has been shortlisted in the ‘Clean Shipping’ category for the prestigious Seatrade Awards 2013.
The Seatrade Awards are considered the most prestigious awards in the Global Commercial Shipping industry. Held annually in London, they acknowledge the ‘best of breed’ in categories such as Safety at Sea, Investment in People, Innovation in Ship Operations and Clean Shipping. The judging panel is chaired by Mr. Koji Sekimizu, Secretary General of the IMO, who is joined on the panel by Chairmen and Presidents of industry trade organisations such as BIMCO, INTERTANKO, INTERCARGO, IACS, ICS, OCIMF, ECC and HELMEPA.
The Award Ceremony is held in magnificent surroundings at the London Guildhall; winners are announced by the Guest of Honour and recipients receive a fanfare reception whilst making their way to the stage to accept the handmade trophy. It is a truly prestigious event and winners are recognised globally for their achievements.
WR’s President, Dave Edwards, comments, ‘WR are honoured to have been shortlisted in such a highly important category, especially given the recent introduction of many environmental innovations such as Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems, Ballast Water Treatment Systems, Hull Coatings and other equally relevant technologies designed to reduce fuel consumption and air emissions. We are looking forward to the excitement of the Awards Dinner, which is akin to attending the maritime industry ‘Oscars’, but whatever the outcome, I am immensely proud to be associated with a team who have already been recognised for their professional excellence.’
