The team at Triskel Marine Integrel accepts the DAME award.

Metstrade opened today in Amsterdam with its Breakfast Briefing and the presentation of the DAME Award 2018 to Triskel Marine Integrel, a company that manufactures a supplemental generator for boats and superyachts.

In a statement, the DAME jury said that the Integrel system improves “the environmental impact of leisure boating and its simplicity of operation providing long periods of quiet ship operation and its potential to be further developed for a wide range of applications.”

Chair of the jury Birgit Schnaase said in the statement, “The entry field one again showed signs of progress at individual company and industry levels. The primary motive of the DAME Award is to promote good design practice in every aspect and the jury was pleased to see so many examples where form and function were well balanced.”

She said the size of the products ranged from superyacht systems to a small clip with wide-ranging complexity.
