The winner of the Project of the Year Award, sponsored by Fesco Projects, has been revealed.

Project - deugro (2)

The 2021 shortlist for the Project of the Year award was impressive in itself. Our judges thought the calibre of entries this year was of an exceptionally high standard. “I enjoyed reading every single one of them,” said one of our judges, “everybody has something different to offer and offered in different ways.”

Another commented: “It is extremely interesting to note that, while we were holed up in the throes of a pandemic, we had this amount of interesting projects handled successfully – it is a refreshing take and an impressive list of projects showcased.”

Our judges came to the decision that deugro topped the list for the cooperation between its offices in Japan, Russia and South Korea in transporting 35,541 freight tons of cargo simultaneously on two fully chartered vessels for an ethylene and polypropylene plant from Masan, South Korea, via Tiksi in the Arctic Ocean to Ust-Kut, Russia.

Judges commended a “rock solid project” executed across difficult circumstances – notably a completely remote final installation location.

We strongly suggest, if you have not already done so, taking a look at this year’s shortlisted entries, which include: Barnhart, Fagioli, Laso Transportes, Lift & Shift, Mammoet, Marr Contracting, Osprey, RTL, Sarens, Schmidbauer and Viktor Baumann.
