Energy Efficiency Award 2013

The Energy Efficiency Award (previously Clean Ship Award) pays tribute to the ship that makes the greatest contribution towards energy efficiency in relation to its function or operation.

The award went to Fjord LinesStavangerfjord, the first international service passenger ferry in the world to run on pure LNG engines. It is also designed to serve both day and night ferry markets, operating as a night ferry on the Bergen-Stavanger-Hirtshals route in Norway and as a day ferry on the Hirtshals-Langesund route.

Partnering with Nor-Shipping for this award was the International Maritime Organization (IMO), developer of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new ships that came into effect this year. The other nominees were Viking Grace, CMA CGM Marco Polo and Dina Star.

The Energy Efficiency Award jury included a representative each from the IMO, media partner Riviera Maritime Media, DNV, The Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute (MARINTEK) and Nor-Shipping.
