THE 285,000 deadweight tonne oil tanker Ambon (left) is the first Hong Kong-managed ship to receive the Port of Rotterdam's Green Award.


Owned by Sweden's ICB, the 1992-built very large crude carrier (VLCC) is managed by Wallem Shipmanagement.


The Ambon was given the award, which covers structural items, management and crewing standards, after a full survey by Green Award inspectors.


Certificates are issued only after company management office and ship have been thoroughly checked.


The managing director of Wallem Shipmanagement, Aswin Atre, said the rewards could be substantial.


'The cost of auditing our office and ship was 23,365 guilders [about HK$109,000], which was recovered by the Green Award discounts in one port call at Rotterdam.'
