Entries are flooding in for The Motorship Award, honouring emissions-cutting partnerships.

The Award is set to recognise the most promising maritime emissions-cutting projects in front of an audience of ship owners and marine technology suppliers at this year’s Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference place in Hamburg on 14-16 November.

Submissions should be sent directly to The Motorship Editor, Gavin Lipsith. No further entries will be accepted after 14 September, leaving you just three weeks to enter your project.

Projects will be assessed for:

  • Their potential impact in reducing emissions
  • Special consideration given to projects that can help ships cut sulphur or NOx emissions while meeting tough energy efficiency requirements
  • The award will be open to partnership projects featuring at least two of the following: ship owner, shipyard, class society, naval architect, equipment/fuel supplier, academic institution
  • The advisory committee will select projects based on their impact on fuel consumption, capital and operating expenditure and applicability across the shipping industry

The winner will be determined by a vote amongst conference delegates, after shortlisted nominees present their projects in special sessions held throughout the event.

Gavin Lipsith, editor, The Motorship, said: “At our fortieth annual conference, we will explore how shipping can meet increasingly stringent demands on environmental performance. The conference will investigate many current technical developments and ship projects, and The Motorship Award will allow us to look further ahead at promising initiatives that could push shipping towards an era of zero emissions.”

The deadline for nominations is 14 September 2018. To discuss a nomination, please contact Gavin Lipsith on glipsith@motorship.com or call +44 1329 825335.
