The Marine Propulsion Awards 2019

The Marine Propulsion Awards 2019 

In an industry that has no shortage of award ceremonies, only the Marine Propulsion Awards focus on the truly technical innovations are research work that often goes unrecognised by the wider industry. These awards, judged by a panel of industry experts, not only are a badge of honour for the winners but provide the winning and shortlisted companies with extensive coverage across, not just Riviera’s many websites and magazines, but the wider maritime press also. 

Voting for the Marine Propulsion Awards 2019 is now closed.
