The Association of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in Spain (AINE ) presented the award for Best Spanish ship built in 2012 to Zamakona Yards for its Offshore Emergency Rescue Vessel 'Esvagt Aurora'.

The event took place as part of the 52nd Congress of Naval Engineering and Maritime Industry for the year 2013, under the theme “Engineers and Engineering: The sea as an opportunity." The presentation was at a gala dinner held at the Club de Campo in Madrid.

The award-winning vessel was built for Esvagt AS , a subsidiary of Danish multinational AP Møller – Mærsk . Esvagt Aurora’s primary mission is to provide immediate assistance to emergency situations and to provide support to deep sea operations. The ship is specially adapted to service in adverse weather conditions in the Barents Sea.

The vessel incorporates the latest cutting-edge technological developments for the launch and recovery of rescue boats, de-icing equipment to prevent accumulation on deck as well as equipment for pollution control. It meets the highest standards required by the Norwegian authorities for this type of ship.
