Carisbrooke Shipping – 2022 Maritime UK Awards Finalist
Dear friends and colleagues,
We are very excited to announce that we have been shortlisted as a finalist of the prestigious Maritime UK Awards – Clean Maritime Enabler category.
As per Maritime UK information, this award focuses on business growth, innovation, sustainability and diversity and recognises the very best of the UK’s maritime sector. It is organised by industry, for the benefit of the industry.
The past twelve months have seen significant activity for the maritime sector, whether on Freeports, the National Shipbuilding Strategy, Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, London International Shipping Week, COP26 or at October’s Budget and Spending Review, where the Chancellor announced reforms to Tonnage Tax.
The awards are therefore a fantastic opportunity to highlight and celebrate the growing number of world-leading projects helping to ensure the UK’s position as the most innovative, competitive, and sustainable maritime centre by the middle of this century.
- Carisbrooke Shipping was established in 1969 and is based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
- We currently own or manage a fleet of 30+ general cargo, multi-purpose and bulk carriers, many of which evolved in-house and incorporate innovative bow design and hydrodynamic hull forms.
- Over the years we have commissioned a total of 98 new vessels with the aim to break the ‘hundred’ barrier shortly.
- We partner with the UK industry, institutes and universities looking for technology which can power our ships into the future, with special interest in increasing the engine efficiency, hydrogen and solar power generation.
It is great to have our continuous efforts towards Maritime 2050 goals recognised by the leading industry experts and fingers crossed for the 10th of March in Glasgow!
