Wartsila Sternguard In-Water Serviceable Seal (IWSS) has won the award for Innovation in Dredging Equipment at the Dredging & Port Construction (DPC) Innovation Awards 2016.

The main ceremony and gala was held on 10 November 2016 in London.

The panel of judges included industry experts, who chose the winners from among a number of high quality entries.

The category of dredging equipment included software, engines, pumps & wear parts, cutter-heads and project-specific solutions.

Out of ten shortlisted competitors, Wartsila Sternguard IWSS was considered the most innovative.

Wartsil Sternguard In-Water Serviceable Seal, launched in December 2015, is a fully split, underwater serviceable seal that minimizes overhaul downtime and costs. The seal has been designed to provide a smoother, faster service, as well as enhanced overall performance and endurance.

The new recognition comes only days after Wärtsilä Sternguard IWSS won the Technical Innovation Award at the Seatrade Maritime Awards and the Environmental Technology Award at the Ship Efficiency Awards.
