Pasha Hawaii Fleet Receives 2017 CSA Environmental Achievement Awards
Honolulu, HI-based Pasha Hawaii has announced that all six of its vessels in the Hawaii/Mainland trade were recognized with Certificates of Environmental Achievement by the Chamber of Shipping of America.
Pasha Hawaii’s pure car/truck carrier, the M/V Jean Anne, was honored for 12 consecutive years of environmental excellence from her service entry in 2005, and combination container/roll-on/roll-off vessel M/V Marjorie C was awarded for excellence in her first two years of service.
All four of Pasha Hawaii’s containerships, Horizon Enterprise, Horizon Pacific, Horizon Reliance, and Horizon Spirit, were each recognized for two years of environmental excellence, following the acquisition and successful integration of Horizon Lines, Inc.’s Hawaii business.
“These awards celebrate the dedication to environmental excellence of our seafarers and the company personnel shore-side who operate our vessels to the highest standards” said Kathy J. Metcalf, President of CSA. “It should be clear to the American public that we in the maritime industry take our stewardship of the marine environment very seriously. Safe and environmentally responsible operations is a culture fully embraced by the maritime industry as a whole and as evidenced by the performances of the award recipients.”
George W. Pasha, IV, President and CEO, Pasha Hawaii, added, “We are extremely proud of our captains, crew members, and operations staff for their ongoing commitment to safety and environmental responsibility at sea and ashore, and we are honored to be recognized among this list of esteemed vessels and crews.”
