Tue, 30 May 2017

This year, for the first time, the Seawork International 2017 trade show will present its new European Commercial Marine Awards (ECMAs) alongside its Innovation Showcase winners, as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Taking place at Mayflower Park in Southampton, the Seawork Innovation Showcase, sponsored by Lloyds Register, and the ECMAs, sponsored by Servogear and Brunvoll Mar, will celebrate the best work, design innovation and achievements in the maritime industry that are paving the way for new developments. Seawork also welcomes ‘sister’ magazine Maritime Journal as co-host of the awards.

Six Innovation Showcase awards are on offer for the best of the Spirit of Innovation category entries, plus special recognition for the overall Spirit of Innovation winner, while the ECMAs include Maritime Professional of the Year, sponsored by G.G.T.C, the Maritime Sustainability Award, sponsored by Travelers and the Lifetime Achievement award.

Award winners will be presented with their trophies at an evening ceremony organised by Saltwater on Tuesday 13th June, in the Golden Arrow Restaurant, overlooking Mayflower Park’s Seawork Marina.

2016 winners
In 2016, the overall Showcase winner was Duodrive for its Duodrivetrain, a unique end-to-end performance engineering product designed for conventional shaft-driven boats below 28m in length. DuoDrive also took home the propulsion category title. Other category winners included Punk Couplings, Spirit of Innovations’ runner up and winner of the Marine Engineering award for its Punk Couplings torque product. The electronics category winner was CA Clase for the Lars Thrane LT-1000 Navigation Reference Unit, while Spinlock Ltd. took the Safety category title for the Spinlock Lume-On.

John Haynes, managing director of Shock Mitigation Solutions, was named as Maritime Professional of the Year, earning the judges’ vote with his dedication to improving people’s lives on boats and his work with over 100 organisations. 2016 also saw the introduction of the Travelers-sponsored Maritime Sustainability Award, which was presented to CWind for its ability to offer considerable fuel savings and continued focus on generating clean energy.
