The team at Triskel Marine are incredibly excited to announce that our generator replacement technology Integrel has been confirmed as the Overall Winner of the DAME Design Awards 2018 at the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam
Integrel was shortlisted for the award alongside 63 innovative products from some of the most prominent names in the marine industry, including Garmin, Harken and Yamaha.
Since 1990, the DAME Designs Awards have been one of the most sort-after industry accolades, focusing attention on the art and science of marine design in all aspects. Described as ‘the most significant marine equipment competition of its kind, anywhere in the world’, it is judged by a panel of top boat, interior and industrial experts, alongside leading naval architects, with nominees divided into categories including functionality, practicality of use and innovation.
Managing Director Ken Wittamore said, “We are over the moon at receiving this award. We were up against some of the biggest names in the industry, and to have been selected not only as the winner of our category, but the overall winner, is a dream come true for us.
“Integrel has been the result of over 10 years of development and testing. I am immensely proud of the Triskel team and everything they have achieved in bringing this game-changing product to market.”
For Triskel Marine, Integrel is the latest in a long line of bespoke solutions for the marine sector. Collecting this award is the culmination of several exciting months for the company since the launch of Integrel, which was designed and built in the county.
Having been nominated for several awards in both the DAME Design Awards and the Boat Builder Awards 2018 at this exhibition, it was clear that the judges recognised the innovation and potential of this outstanding new product. Winning the Machinery, Propulsion, Mechanical and Electrical Systems and Fittings category saw Integrel go on to scoop the main overall award.
The Jury particularly noted the Integrel system’s ability to improve the environmental footprint of leisure boating today, its simplicity of operation providing long periods of quiet ship operation and its potential to be further developed for a wide range of applications.
The winners of the Boatbuilder Awards, which we have entered alongside Discovery Yachts, are to be announced this evening.
