ExxonMobil wins Innovation award for its mass flow metering system

ExxonMobil’s mass flow metering system (MFMS)  technology has received a prestigious Seatrade Award for Innovation in Ship Operations. Nathalie Freeman, ExxonMobil’s Global Marketing Project Advisor, and Iain White, Global Marketing Manager, accepted the award at the 28th Seatrade Awards in London’s Guildhall.

The high profile industry event was attended by 300 leading figures from the marine sector and was hosted by the editor of Seatrade Marine Review, Bob Jaques. This year’s guest of honour, IMO secretary-general Kitack Lim, praised the quality of the entries.

“Each year shipping faces an ocean of challenges; some planned and some unpredictable,” Lim said. “It is our task, together, to navigate these with all the skill, dedication and cooperation that we can muster.

“This is why it is so encouraging to have these Seatrade Awards as a vital reminder of shipping’s ability to tap into rich currents of innovation and excellence, because by recognising and celebrating those who have demonstrated a clear ability to make improvements in key areas such as safety at sea and clean shipping, others may be encouraged to strive for similar achievements.”
