Jebb Smith Ltd has been named as one of the best in the UK’s £40bn maritime sector after being shortlisted in the third Maritime UK Awards.
They are a finalist for the Innovation Award for the pioneering development of The Oasis Power Buoy, the world’s first offshore charging solution.
Judges were impressed by this project which promises to reduce carbon emissions by enabling in-field charging of electric and hybrid vessels. The Oasis Power Buoy will initially be deployed in wind farms to recharge Crew Transfer Vessels with a power supply fed directly from wind turbines.
Jebb Smith were also commended for the development of the Oasis Hydrogen Buoy, which will allow the offshore transfer of Hydrogen.
We were absolutely blown away by the number and quality of submissions this year. Organisations and individuals across the breadth of the maritime sector are making significant progress toward our shared Maritime 2050 ambitions, and this is certainly an exciting time to be in the maritime sector.
Maritime is a sector that is now being recognised as critical to the country’s prosperity, sustainability, resilience and future.
I’d like to congratulate everyone that entered the awards, and in particular, our finalists, who the judges really feel are leading our sector forward.”Sarah Kennedy, Chair of Maritime UK
