Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia 2018
FINALISTS for Safety Initiative Award for the FLEETSAFE Safeship® solutions from Coltraco Ultrasonics – 12 Mar 2018. Our submission for the Safety Initiative Award has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 11th Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia which take place on 25th April in Singapore.
Why we are shortlisted for the Safety Initiative Award?
Coltraco Ultrasonics implemented the Safeship® initiative, to promote protecting critical infrastructure at sea. The two main causes of vessel loss are sinking and fire. A lack of proper servicing of watertight and weather-tight seals can lead to deterioration which can endanger the ship, cargo and lives of the crew through flooding and the potential of capsizing.
Secondly, bad industry practice is unacceptable when fire risk may have catastrophic results due to risk to life, downtime in operation due to ship safety and repair work and incalculable reputational damage. The crew, cargo and vessel must be protected when at sea because it is it’s own fire brigade without accessibility to typical emergency services.
