Orlaco Invests in Green Shipping Companies as Green Award Incentive Provider

A further step towards a greener environment: The Green Award shows that an operator goes the extra mile to ensure that its ship is cleaner and more environmentally friendly — an initiative that Orlaco can only support.

The Green Award fits perfectly with Orlaco's principles of doing business in a safe and responsible manner with respect for the environment. Orlaco develops vision solutions for the maritime sector, among other product market combinations, in accordance with strict environmental and quality requirements, in order to increase safety, efficiency and comfort. Orlaco can therefore only support the Green Award initiative and is delighted to join the more than 60 parties that reward green companies. Orlaco wants to encourage green businesses by offering an extended warranty on a camera system. Green Award certified sea and inland waterway vessels are entitled to an extra twelve months' warranty (36 instead of 24 months) on purchased Orlaco cameras (CCTV systems).

To be eligible for Green Award certification, a vessel must comply with strict conditions. These conditions concern not only safety and quality on board and in the office (for shipping) but also environmental protection measures. A camera system, like those from Orlaco, counts as one of these conditions for sea transport in order to earn points for the renowned Green Award. Ships that meet these additional environmental requirements receive a certificate and a Green Award flag. This enables shippers to recognize these green ships and grant them a discount on harbour payments.
