Shipowners and marine technology suppliers are set to recognise the most promising maritime emissions-cutting projects under the award scheme organised by The Motorship.


The Motorship Award

The Motorship Award will be presented at The Motorship’s Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference, to be held in Le Méridien Hotel, Hamburg, 22-24 November 2022. The winner will be determined by a vote amongst conference delegates, with shortlisted nominees presenting their projects in a special session at the end of day one of the conference and the winner will be announced at the conference dinner.

The shortlist will be drawn up through a combination of self-nomination and recommendations made by the event steering committee, which includes representatives from major ship owners, technology providers, class societies and ship owner organisations.

Projects will be assessed for their potential impact in reducing emissions, with special consideration given to projects that can help ships cut sulphur or NOx emissions while meeting tough energy efficiency requirements.

To acknowledge the importance of collaboration in solving industry-wide challenges, the award will be open to partnership projects featuring at least two of the following: shipowner, shipyard, class society, naval architect, equipment/fuel supplier, and academic institution.

As well as emission reduction potential, the advisory committee will select projects based on their impact on fuel consumption, capital and operating expenditure and applicability across the shipping industry.
