ABS Honors The Contibution Of Norwegian Shipping For Saving Lives At Sea

ABS sponsored a ceremony to honor the contribution of Norwegian shipping to the unique reporting system supporting search and rescue efforts for those in distress at sea as a continuation of its long-standing backing of the Amver Awards.

This ceremony was hosted at the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence in Oslo, where 293 vessels were seen from 33 Norwegian shipowners and operators honored for their commitment to maritime safety, making themselves available to assist in search and rescue activities anywhere in the world.

“The Amver awards are a fantastic way of recognizing the brave men and women who operate the global fleet and assist people in peril at sea. They also honor the companies whose culture puts safety at sea above commercial interests,” said Gurinder Singh, ABS Director Global Sustainability. “ABS is proud to support all of their efforts, which align closely with our own safety-focused mission.”

Benjamin Strong, Amver Director, said: “Co-operation from Norwegian vessels is the foundation of Amver. Without vessels voluntarily participating in Amver, countless lives would be lost at sea. Norway’s commitment to Amver stretches back to Amver’s beginning. As places like the Arctic expand to shipping, we look to Norway to continue to support Amver by enrolling Ice Class vessels.”
