On December 7, 2012 Lloyd’s List, the UK maritime newspaper, which is the oldest and most significant maritime newspaper in the world, awarded in Athens to the Greek Section of the international Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) its prestigious award for best technical achievements.

 

The award was given by Mr. Albrecht Grell, Executive Vice President from Germanischer Lloyd Headquarters in Hamburg, the award sponsor, and was received by Prof. Apostolos Papanikolaou, the current chairman of the Greek Section and Petros Lalangas, the founder, four years chairman and currently its Secretary / Treasurer (see the attached photo). This award, together with 16 other awards, was given during a gala dinner and awards ceremony at the Athenaeum InterContinental hotel in Athens in front of 970 Greek & foreign marine executives (ship owners, ship managers, professors, attorneys, economists, etc). The other awards covered such areas as the Ship of the Year; Seafarer of the Year; Safety or Environmental Protection; Greek Shipping Personality of the year; Education or Training, etc.

 

In accepting this award the following was stated:

‘‘Many thanks for this prestigious award, which we accept also on behalf of all members of the Greek Section, who worked hard for its growth.

The Section started back in 2002 with 160 members and now has double that number.

This growth & achievements of the Greek Section were accomplished also because of the support & hospitality provided by the Mr John Angelikousis’ Group of Companies and of the ELKCO Marine Group of Companies, who provide their facilities free of charge for the technical meetings and for office space of the Section and of the SNAME European Regional Office in Paleon Faliron, respectively. Their support is deeply appreciated.’’
