We are pleased to announce that the Wallem-managed vessel, Gemini Leader has been awarded NYK Car Carrier of the Year 2016.
The award was presented to the Captain and crew of the vessel on 2nd May 2017.
Wallem is dedicated to continue supporting our Japanese customers with technical and ship management services for a range of vessel types including car carriers, tankers and container vessels.
Wallem is fully accredited to do full technical management for Japanese flag vessels with Class NK, including the provision of crew with fully compliant Wallem Professional seafarers meeting the stringent Japanese flag requirements.
On 22nd April, the Wallem Wayfarers comprised of Robbie Outram (Hong Kong), Rod Steele (Singapore) and Yogesh Pasrija (Mumbai) took on the Sailors’ Society Asian Challenge 2017.
The team climbed Mt Fansipan, the highest mountain in Indochina and last major peak at the end of the Himalayan range. In this incredible trekking challenge, these three relatively inexperienced hikers ascended 3,143 meters over 2 days to claim not only glory, but also 3rd place in their category.
Though mist remained for the duration of the weekend reducing visibility, and torrential rain did its best to dampen participants’ spirits; the sheer grit, determination and cohesiveness of the Wayfarers that is indicative of Wallem employees took them to the top in impressive fashion.
The team were proud of their achievement and to have reached their fundraising goal to help seafarers via the Sailor’s Society.
