Tsakos Ship Wins International Safety At Sea Amver Award

On June 10th the annual Safety at Sea International Awards were held in Oslo, Norway in conjunction with Norshipping. United States Coast Guard Commander Agneta Dahl, our representative to the World Maritime University, had the honor of presenting the Safety at Sea International Amver Award to Captain Vasilis Iliopoulos of the Tsakos Group. Captain Iliopoulos accepted the Safety at Sea trophy and unique Green Amver Pennant on behalf of the crew of the Parthenon.

The crew of the Parthenon received the award for the daring rescue of four Swedish sailors off the coast of Portugal last September. You can see a video of the rescue here:

We congratulate the entire team at Tsakos shipping along with the crew of the Parthenon for a job well done. You deserve this award.

Has your ship been involved in a rescue at sea? If so send us pictures and video and we will be happy to put it up on the Amver blog.
