Parker Kittiwake is proud to be sponsoring the coveted Marine Propulsion Awards, to be presented at a ceremony on 15th April as part of the annual Marine Propulsion & Auxiliary Machinery Conference.

The awards promote and celebrate excellence and innovation in the development of technology for ships’ engineering systems.

All nominations (the deadline is 30th January) will be reviewed by a panel, with a shortlist voted on by readers of industry publication Marine Propulsion. The categories are:

Marine Engines Award – for an original development that takes engine technology a step forward

Auxiliary Machinery Award – for an enhancement that improves a ship’s operational efficiency or reduces risk to personnel

Environmental Performance Award – for introducing change with a positive environmental benefit

Fuel Efficiency Award – for bringing about a sustainable improvement in fuel efficiency, either on a specific ship or across a fleet

Innovation Award – for any feat of marine engineering that provides an imaginative, effective solution to an engineering need

Shipowner Efficiency Award – for an improvement that has benefited both company and customer in terms of reducing time, cost, or energy consumption

Electrical Systems Award – for equipment that can demonstrate improved efficiency, reduced costs, less waste or better safety

Lifetime Achievement Award – for an individual, selected by Riviera Maritime Media, who has shown consistent leadership and technical inspiration in marine engineering

The two-day Marine Propulsion & Auxiliary Machinery Conference, which will be held on 15th-16th April 2015 in London, will see the  biggest players in the shipping world gather to discuss and gain valuable ‘best practice’ insights into the most challenging issues facing ship operators.

With keynote presentations, panel discussions, technology exhibitions and more, it has become an unmissable event for anyone in the marine propulsion industry.
