Winners of the Shippax Award 2020

Now in their 25th year, the idea behind Shippax Awards is to honour trendsetters and, while this has always been ship-specific, this year for the first time, a company has been awarded too. In the opinion of the impartial jury, it has gone to great lengths to improve its environmental footprint.

The awarded ships were all delivered between 1 January and 31 December 2019. The ferry industry has been at the forefront in shipping in implementing green technologies, something very much in evidence in the list of awarded ships. The jury has gained first-hand experience of all the ships through a combination of onboard inspections, GA-plan examinations, and other relevant data providing relevant information about the candidate vessels.
