Scott Bergeron; CEO of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR)
The Liberian Registry has been named as a finalist for the 2015 Ship Efficiency Awards.
After much consideration by the awards panel of judges, the Liberian Registry was selected to become one of the five finalists for the Initiative of the Year award. The nomination is in respect of Liberia’s Global Eco-Upgrade Financing Programme, an environmental initiative to help reduce global carbon emissions and to enhance fleet efficiency and competitiveness.
The initiative offers a complete energy-saving solution for ships on a global basis with an add-on specifically crafted for Emissions Control Areas (ECAs). The global programme includes an optimal mix of fuel efficiency retrofit solutions for each target vessel, based on its trading pattern, age, size, speed, and consumption. For ships trading within ECA zones, the programme can include the installation of exhaust scrubber systems or the conversion of engines to LNG dual-fuel, to comply with emissions requirements.
The second annual Ship Efficiency Awards will recognise and celebrate the organisations and individuals within the maritime sector that excel in efficient operations, implement fresh thinking and offer proven efficiency benefits and technological innovation. The award ceremony takes place on 9 September at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.
