Amver Awards Presented in Germany

German shipping representatives gathered in Hamburg, Germany at the Ubersee Club on the evening of Wednesday, September 7, 2022 to celebrate safety at sea and receive their United States Coast Guard Amver awards. The gathering was part of the larger SMM 2022, held biennially.

More than 340 ships earned awards by making themselves available to assist in search and rescue around the world. "We are so grateful we are able to gather in person and recognize the good work done by our shipping partners." stated Benjamin Strong, Amver Director. 

Mr. Jason Chue, United States Consul General Hamburg, reinforced the relationship between Hamburg, German shipping, and the United States. 

The event was made possible through the generous sponsorships from the American Bureau of Shipping, StormGeo, and Vikand. We are thankful for their continued support of Amver. 

Congratulations to all the recipients!
