New "Ship of the Year" awards won by "Remontowa" SA for environmentally friendly, LNG fuelled ships

Gdansk Shiprepair Yard "Remontowa" SA was among six short-listed entries for the Green Ship Technology Awards 2010 (one of the three short-listed nominees in Green Ship of the Year award category, along with Rolls-Royce Marine's Far Samson offshore vessel and Samsung Heavy Industries' GDF Suez Neptune shuttle and regasification LNG carrier).

We are pleased to announce that environmentally-friendly, LNG fuelled, double-ended ferry Moldefjord, delivered late November 2009 and opening a series of four similar ships being built at Gdansk based Northern Shipyard (Stocznia Polnocna SA, member of REMONTOWA Group) to the order of "Remontowa" SA for Norwegian Owners Fjord1 MRF AS (Fjord1 Møre og Romsdal Fylkesbåtar) was proclaimed one of the two winners of Green Ship of the Year award (along with LNG carrier from Samsung) at a gala dinner during the 7th edition of Green Ship Technology Conference organised by Informa Maritime Events (member of Informa group, known also as a publisher of "Lloyd's List"), taking place in Copenhagen, on 16 and 17 March 2010.

Green Ship Technology Award, a prize instituted by Lloyd’s List events to recognize efforts in maintaining the marine environment and mitigating the environmental effects of the shipping industry, was first presented in 2007.
It is also worth mentioning that, after several similar titles won over the recent years, another Remontowa built ship, LNG fuelled, diesel-gas-electric driven LNG / LPG / LEG (ethylene) gas tanker Coral Methane has earned the inclusion in latest edition (published in February 2010) of the "Shignificant Ship of the Year" review produced by the London based Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). "Significant Ships of 2009", lists (besides versatile and innovative gas carrier from Remontowa) a few dozens of the most outstanding and important examples from the World's shipyard production of the past year (as it has been doing in previous editions since 1990, where also some other Remontowa built ships have been noted).
