The Port of Rotterdam Authority starts a new campaign which aims to strengthen the brand ‘Port of Rotterdam’ around the world.
HMS Holland, first of a new class of Royal Netherlands Navy patrol vessels of the same name, has been named “Ship of the Year”. The prestigious prize has been awarded to the innovative ship, which was designed and mostly built in the Netherlands, during the annual Maritime Awards Gala in Rotterdam on 8 November 2012.
The Environmental Ship Index (ESI) and Green Award Foundation nautical environmental certificates will be joining forces. In the future, the foundation will take the results of ESI on board in its own evaluation and in return, it will check the emissions of ‘Green Award ships’ on behalf of ESI during the annual audit.
