Sea Alarm is excited to announce that we have been nominated for the 2014 Thor Heyerdahl Maritime Environmental Award. The award, which has been given out six times since 2001, recognises an individual, legal entity, or organisation for outstanding contribution to the protection of the marine environment. Sea Alarm has been nominated for its work in the areas of conservation and awareness raising.
ITOPF has launched a new new oil spill response R&D initiative, funded by the world’s shipowners and their P&I insurers. The ITOPF R&D Award will provide some £50,000 each year to encourage innovative thinking and provide realistic solutions to some of the challenges faced when responding to accidental oil and chemical spills and undertaking environmental monitoring.
The Seatrade Awards are amongst the most important and prestigious awards that can be won in the Maritime sector. Sea Alarm was honoured to be one of two runners-up in the Protection of the Marine and Atmospheric Environment category for the “highly commended contribution” it has made.
