The Lloyd’s List Global Award for the shipping industry’s best innovation project 2011 was won by DNV. At a ceremony, Chief Operating Officer Ioannis Kourmatzis accepted the award on behalf of DNV.
When nominating, DNV chose Triality as its candidate among several innovation projects. Triality is a crude oil tanker concept that is fuelled by liquefied natural gas, has a hull shape that removes the need for ballast water and will reduce considerably emission to air.
London-based Lloyd’s List is the only global shipping newspaper with a daily circulation and is the world’s oldest continuously published newspaper. Its first issue was released in 277 years ago – in 1734! Winning one of its global awards is ranked high.
“I’m really pleased and honoured to accept this award on behalf of a lot of competent, hardworking DNV colleagues,” says Ioannis Kourmatzis, DNV’s COO Europe & North Africa. “When the financial crisis hit the shipping industry in late 2008, DNV decided to increase its focus on innovation and new opportunities.”
For Triality a group of some 30 competent, mostly young people representing a wide set of disciplines was selected. Their results were presented externally by DNV’s CEO Henrik Madsen to customers and the media in London in early December last year.
Since then, Triality has been widely communicated to a lot of customers and stakeholders.
At the newspaper’s 275th anniversary (2009), the number of awards was increased. At that time, DNV won the award for the best class society – a category that had not been included before and has not been included since
