The 60th inland barge certified


The 60th Green Award inland shipping certificate was handed over to owners of MTS Melbourne during the CBRB annual dinner in Rotterdam on the 27th of October 2011. The number of certified inland navigation vessels increases rapidly.

Mr. Alexander Wanders from Unibarge accepted the certificate from the hands of Ms. Jeannette Balieu the alderman for the Port, Transport and the Regional Economy of Rotterdam (the Netherlands). Mr. Fransen, Managing Director of Green Award, also presented him with a Green Award flag that can now be proudly hoisted on board the Melbourne. The Melbourne is the twelfth vessel of Unibarge that proved its dedication to high environmental and quality standards by obtaining the Green Award certificate.

The number of certified inland barges and new applications continues to grow. Green Award is happy to welcome new additions to its certified fleet and believes that this initiative contributes greatly to the promotion of safe and clean inland waterways shipping.
