Eighty-nine Crowley Maritime Corporation owned and operated vessels were honoured with Certificates of Environmental Achievement for years of safe operations during the 11th Annual Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) awards ceremony.
Crowley received an award for each vessel that worked at least two consecutive years without an environmental incident. The 89 vessels have logged a combined 968 years of service without incident, a testament to Crowley’s commitment to keeping harbours and oceans clean.
Each year, CSA invites all owners and operators of vessels that work on oceans or inland waterways to nominate their vessels for Environmental Achievement awards. Approximately 1386 vessels from 58 companies, including Crowley, were recognised this year at the ceremony held in Washington, D.C. The honoured vessels accumulated a total of 10,749 years of safe operations.
Forty-seven of Crowley’s vessels have gone without incident for 10 or more consecutive years. Crowley has been honoured with Environmental Achievement Awards each year since at least 2005.
Commenting on the recognition, Mike Golonka, VP – Ship Management, said: “Safety is the No. 1 core value at Crowley. This includes the safety of our people and those around them as well as the environment. These awards recognise the rigorous work of our crews, who ensure that our vessels operate safely and in an environmentally responsible manner.”
