Foreship’s extensive work to help shipping achieve its goals for decarbonization has been recognized in its success as the GREEN4SEA EUROPORT Ship Design Award winner for 2023.
The industry-led award was secured in acknowledgement of Foreship’s concept design for an innovative ammonia-fueled 15,000 TEU container ship, commissioned by Seaspan Corporation as part of a collaborative project with Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping. Foreship’s ground-breaking design secured Approval in Principle from American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) in July.
Reserved for organizations that can demonstrate a significant breakthrough in, or contribution to Environmentally Friendly Ship Design, the award is secured by popular vote, and was made at a ceremony held during the Europort exhibition 2023.
