DOUBLING THE GREEN EFFORTS: GREEN SEA GUARD AND GREEN AWARD JOIN FORCES
Green Sea Guard today joined the community of Green Award incentive providers, offering an 8% discount on its product price list.
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.
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.
Speaking about this prestigious collaboration, Green Sea Guard’s CEO, Anita Bradshaw said: ‘Signing up to Green Award is a turning point for Green Sea Guard as we will now offer incentives to shipowners buying or leasing our products as well as offering them the chance to make cash savings on operating costs through engine diagnostics and preventative maintenance. Our products already represent a way for shipowners to demonstrate how they can save money through compliance with air quality and emissions regulations: with Green Award certification, these ships can access an even broader range of benefits.
