(Jacksonville, Fla.; Nov. 23, 2010) – Crowley Maritime Corporation was recently honored with 85 Certificates of Environmental Achievement for 2010 during a Chamber of Shipping of America awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The certificates were awarded to Crowley-owned and -operated vessels for having worked at least two years without environmental incident.
The awards are open to all owners and operators of vessels that operate on oceans or inland waterways. This year, nearly 1,100 vessels owned by 68 companies, including Crowley, were recognized. Crowley’s vessels together achieved a total of 664 years of service without incident. Forty of Crowley’s vessels have gone without incident for 10 or more consecutive years, including the following Crowley tugboats: Sea Voyager, 19 years; MV Pt. Barrow, 13 years; MV Pt. Thompson, 13 years; and Stalwart, with an impressive 28 years.
“These awards celebrate the dedication to environmental excellence of our seafarers and the company personnel shore-side who operate our vessels to the highest standards,” said Joseph J. Cox, CSA president and CEO. “In today’s world, it seems our industry only gets front-page news when spills or other environmental problems occur. It is encouraging to see how many vessels go for years achieving environmental excellence.”
“This recognition is a testament to the rigorous work of our crews who ensure our vessels operate safely and in an environmentally responsible manner,” said Captain Victor Goldberg, Crowley’s vice president of marine operations for petroleum services. "Our vessels undertake at least one load and one discharge per week. Thus in a 52-week period, they have well over 100 instances of cargo operations. Our crews know that carrying oil is a high-stakes business with no room for error.”
