The Tanker Operator of the Year Award is one of the five categories in the Tanker Shipping and Trade Awards, organized by Riviera Maritime Media. The award “recognizes a tanker operating company that has set new industry benchmarks/broken new ground over the past 12 months through responding innovatively to challenging markets, pioneering new approaches, challenging old orthodoxies, and setting new standards in day-to-day operations.”
Odfjell is shortlisted “for its pioneering and proactive approach to reducing carbon emissions through the adoption of new technologies.”
“Chemical carrier owner and operator Odfjell has been nominated for its work in honing eco technologies. An example is the fitment of propeller boss cap fin to some of its tankers. This is an idea from the eco technologies “back catalogue” that works well when carefully designed for the vessel.”
The other finalists are Tsakos Energy Navigation, Shell International Trading and Shipping Company, Thome Group and Capital Group. All finalists have set new standards in various aspects of the maritime industry. We thank Riviera Maritime Media for the nomination and recognition of our sustainability efforts.
