Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (SPO) has been presented with the Excellence in Offshore Support Award at the 2019 Lloyd’s List Asia Pacific Awards in Singapore.

The event is part of the Lloyd’s List Excellence in Shipping Awards, which recognises excellence across maritime sectors. Winners for the 15 award categories were chosen by a panel of judges comprising independent maritime experts and industry leaders from various areas of specialisations in the global maritime industry.

The Excellence in Offshore Support Award recognises maritime businesses that have demonstrated excellence in supporting the offshore energy industry through services or the operation of offshore service and supply vessels. The judges commented: “In a tough market where survival can often be the mark of success, Swire Pacific Offshore impressed with what the judges described as 'an overall excellent performance' this year. The sheer range of services provided was supplemented by a serious commitment to safety, the environment and the technological innovation.”

“I congratulate all the people of the SPO Group on this award; it feels great that our team has been recognised in this way especially after all the travails and challenges that have faced our sector over the past four years. The award is a reflection of the quality and commitment of our entire team – our seafarers, marine and shore staff around the world; and SPO’s ongoing commitment to its values – of always striving for excellence and doing the right thing in a sustainable way for our customers, people, communities and the environment,” said Peter Langslow, MD of SPO. "It is particularly pleasing that it is the Excellence in Offshore Support category we won, which is so closely aligned to SPO’s vision, Excellence in Offshore Marine Services. The timing of the award is also hugely encouraging, coming at the same time as we finally start to perceive the long promised recovery in levels of offshore activity. It is a reaffirmation of our strategy and will spur us on to greater achievement.”
