Artemis Technologies shortlisted for prestigious Maritime UK Awards

Posted on: February 17, 2022

Artemis Technologies has been shortlisted in two categories as part of the 2022 Maritime UK Awards.

Held for the first time in September 2019, the Maritime UK Awards are run by the industry for the benefit of the industry, with Artemis Technologies receiving a shortlisted position in the Clean Maritime Innovator and 2050 Award categories.

David Tyler, Commercial Director, Artemis Technologies commented:

“Artemis Technologies is extremely proud to have been named as part of the 2022 Maritime UK Awards shortlist. We are very pleased that our efforts to develop and improve efficiency and sustainability within the UK maritime sector have been recognised, and we appreciate the support and confidence invested in us so far.

“I would like to extend my congratulations to all those included on this year’s shortlist, and we are very much looking forward to the award presentation event on 10th March.”

Founded in 2017, Artemis Technologies, led by double Olympic sailing gold medalist Dr Iain Percy OBE has a mission to lead the decarbonisation of the maritime sector.

The company’s entries to the Clean Maritime Innovator and 2050 Award categories focused on highlighting Artemis Technologies’ role in making a significant contribution to the transition to zero emissions for the Maritime sector and capitalising on the opportunities presented within the Government’s Maritime 2050 Strategy.

This has been achieved through the development of the Artemis eFoiler®, a unique electric hydrofoiling propulsion system which reduces operational costs by up to 90%, and emissions by 100%.

David continued:

“As lead partner of the Belfast Maritime Consortium, we have been working tirelessly to fulfil our aims of developing and manufacturing zero-emission high-speed ferries in the city and opening new pathways to high-paid employment in Belfast.

“Our innovative and transformative Artemis eFoiler® is set to revolutionise the industry by helping operators to dramatically reduce their carbon emissions, helping  the UK and countries across the world to realise their net zero targets.

“We are very excited about the opportunities presented by this technology and hope to launch our test vessels in the coming weeks.”

The third Maritime UK Awards are being held at the Glasgow Science Centre, building upon the sector’s activity at COP26 and will take place on Thursday 10th March.
