WR Systems of Norfolk, Virginia announced that its Emsys Emissions Monitoring System won an award in the Clean Shipping category at the 25th Anniversary Seatrade Awards held on Friday, May 10, 2013, at the Guildhall in London.
Dave Edwards, President of WR, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
Edwards stated, “We are truly humbled to have won this award at such an important event. With the current focus on Clean Shipping, it’s a testament to the team of professionals at WR who have developed and deployed this truly innovative technology that will benefit the shipping industry going forward. Our mission with Emsys was simple: to change the game. Identifying the specific requirements of the industry, and then meeting these exacting needs in terms of technology, service, price point and lifecycle costs, was our intention. To have been recognized in the International shipping community lets me know we are succeeding in our mission.”
“Our strategy has always been to make our customers successful, whether it’s shipyards, shipowners or partner companies such as scrubber manufacturers,” Edwards continued. “Emsys has set new standards regarding monitoring of emissions, and we have deployed the system in traditionally difficult applications such as Scrubbing technology. One of our informed customers contacted us last week and told us that Emsys was without equal; this lets us know we are on the right path. WR has also achieved major successes in new-build contracts for Emsys over the past 12 months, securing multi-ship contracts at shipyards in Korea, China and Japan. This, combined with many successful offshore air permit installations, allows Emsys to support the global shipping industry in meeting the many challenges associated with Clean Shipping.”
