Green Sea Guard has joined the community of Green Award incentive providers, offering an 8% discount on its product price list.
Green Award for the inland shipping comes from the Green Award scheme established in 1994 in order to promote quality shipping amongst sea-going vessels.
All over the world Green Award certifies ships and ship managers that prove their dedication to high quality, safety and environmental standards.
The benefits for extra clean and extra safe ships include image improvement, charterers’ preference, reduction on port dues, discounts on pilotage services and various trainings, reimbursement by a bank for a part of the certification costs etc.
Shipowners holding a certificate from Green Award can access discounts at participating ports, creating a strong positive business case for environmental awareness and sustainable practices.
This discount applies both to Green Sea Guard’s particulate monitoring system, which can be used to detect particulates from 10 microns down to 70 nm in diameter, and to its gas analysis system which monitors nine different gas parameters during normal operation of a ship. Shipowners and managers use the analyses of the data, which they access via the internet in real time as the ship sails, to detect and monitor engine issues, prioritise maintenance and realise cost savings through more efficient maintenance scheduling.
