The following seafarers were honored for working at Odfjell for at least 25 years, and were presented with a plaque and gold watch by VP Maritime Personnel Svend Foyn-Bruun, Odfjell Philippines, Inc. president Captain Remigio Zamora, and VP-Head of Crewing Agnes Enesio:

In a recorded message, CEO Harald Fotland congratulated the awardees and thanked them for the other type of loyalty that they have shown during the pandemic:

“As the past two years have shown, there is another facet of this loyalty. When the pandemic swept the world in the beginning of 2020, our biggest challenge was crew change. Due to national lockdowns and port restrictions, seafarers on board were not able to come home, and those at home were stuck on vacation. During these unprecedented times, you stood by the company and you made sacrifices: you extended your contracts when needed, you shortened your vacation when needed, and when called for duty, you stood up. You were all patient when our efforts fell short. Such loyalty is something every one of us should be proud of.”
