TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE GROUP - News & Announcements
The 12th Lloyd's List Greek Shipping Awards 2015 - 2015 Dec 07
For the 11th consecutive year TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE sponsored the Lloyd's List Greek Shipping Awards which were presented at a successful dinner event on Friday 4 December 2015 at the Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel in Athens.
George A. Tsavliris presented the "Seafarer of the Year" Award to Mrs Tsitsimelis, wife of the winner, Capt. Dimitris Tsitsimelis who in January diverted the Magna Marine bulker "Pansolar" to rescue two Mexican fishermen who had been adrift for three weeks without water or provisions. Despite heavy seas, the men were brought on board and taken to the nearest port, Acapulco, where they fully recovered in hospital.
The "Seafarer of the Year" Award is one which Tsavliris Salvage Group is honoured and proud to sponsor. Lloyd's List once again held an impressive event with over 1,100 shipping personalities, executives and guests in attendance. Nigel Lowry, Greece's Lloyd's List correspondent and director of the Greek Shipping Awards together with Andriana Paraskevopoulou, journalist, were excellent co-hosts of the event and provided great entertainment.
The Awards are held annually to recognise and reward achievement and meritorious activity in the Greek shipping industry as well as to promote Greece's status as a maritime centre. Winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges representing a broad cross-section of the Greek shipping industry.
