Next Generation Ship Award

With a focus on innovation, the Next Generation Ship Award honors the most promising design for ships that will be at sea in the coming decade.

At the Nor-Shipping Opening Conference on May 30, four nominees will be publicly honored for their innovative ship design. In addition to receiving the award in front of a prominent industry audience.

In 2015, the award went to Ulstein’s X-Stern, a design feature that reduces acceleration, pitch and heave, improves comfort and safety, and widens the operational window.

Criteria
The Next Generation Ship Award is awarded to the ship project demonstrating the greatest advances and innovation in design. The design is assessed with respect to energy efficiency, innovation, suitability and flexibility, technology utilization, safety and security and environmental sustainability. All ship types will be given equal consideration, regardless of size or segment.

Since innovative efficient designs often emerge through active collaboration between companies, collaborators may jointly apply. Eligible projects are those that are contracted but not delivered or are likely to be contracted and built within the next 10 years.

Ships delivered in the six months prior to Nor-Shipping  2017 will be permitted but no ship can be entered for both awards.

Jury details
The jury consist of dedicated professionals representing a diversity of segments and geographical presence, inlcuding representetives from the Award Partner and Award Media Partner.

The jury’s chairman is Malcolm Latarche, an industry expert and freelance maritime journalist, who has led this jury since 2013.
