Wallenius Wilhelmsen awarded for its green intiatives by GE Energy

May 27 - At GE Energy's first Logistics Supplier Conference in Prague, attended by 120 suppliers from Europe, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) was presented with an award for its excellence in quality and environmental health and safety.

WWL carries a wide variety of high and heavy cargo for GE, including power generation components, generators and wind energy components.

"WWL is committed to delivering highly innovative and sustainable logistics solutions, and receiving this recognition from such an esteemed company as GE is something we are proud of," said Abu Nasser, general manager of sales and marketing for WWL Europe.

In 2010, the company reduced the relative CO2 emissions from its ocean fleet by 21 percent. The company's 1.5 percent global low sulphur fuel policy has saved 151,000 tonnes of sulphur being emitted over the 10 years.

The company specialises in handling complex project cargoes such as rail cars, power generators, mining equipment and yachts.
