Odfjell ships recognized with Amver awards

The United States Coast Guard pays tribute to 36 Odfjell vessels for contributing to the Amver program the past year.

The Amver awards honor shipowners, crew and operators for their commitment to safety at sea by being available to assist in rescue activities anywhere in the world. 

Over the years, Odfjell has received a full 101 awards for our continuous engagement in this voluntary humanitarian program. At this year’s award ceremony, an additional 36 vessels in Odfjell’s fleet were recogized.

The Amver Awards Program honors vessels that regularly participate in the reporting system for identifying other ships in the area, or a ship in distress. To be eligible for the award, the vessel must have at least 128 days on the Amver plot in a calendar year.

“The Amver awards are a fantastic way of recognizing the brave men and women who operate the global fleet and assist people in peril at sea. They also honor the companies whose culture puts safety at sea above commercial interests”

Gurinder Singh, ABS Director Global Sustainability


VP Fleet Management Knut Erik Fredriksen accepts the awards on behalf of Odfjell at the U.S. Ambassador’s residence.

The origins of the Amver finds its roots in the Titanic disaster of 1912. It is estimated that more than 2 800 lives have been saved by Amver-participating ships since 2000.

“Mariners helping mariners is the most effective and the most appropriate insurance. The U.S. Coast Guard’s Amver Program is an invaluable example of international emergency and humanitarian cooperation for others to follow"

Kenneth J. Braithwaite, U.S. Ambassador to Norway.
