The director for Environmental Affairs in APL Kevin Krick told, they are really proud to receive that top prize, that is reserved for the most significant ecological achievements. He took the prize from U.S. Coast Guard Commandant - Admiral Robert Papp at the American Petroleum Institute Tanker Conference.
The obligation of APL to resistant global trade is proved through their investments in the green technologies. They hope that their prize win is going to serve as an industry benchmark and promote others to similarly endeavor for environmental progress.
This prize recognizes marine businesses and big companies with exclusive achievements which stretch far beyond adherence with industrial and regulatory standards. The Osprey is rarely represented, and it is given as the highest level of honors when a company definitely surpasses all review criteria expectations.
APL also celebrated the receiving of its newest and largest ship, that is also its most environmentally-friendly and fuel-efficient vessel in the world. The 10,700-TEU APL Southampton, which is fitted with a system for ballast water treatment and also fitted with an electronically-controlled main engine, signals a new era of resistant vessels entering the liner’s fleet. APL tells it is going to deploy 30 more new ships in the next 3 years.
APL has also stated that it is going to reduce carbon emissions 30% by 2015.
