The team at Integrel are incredibly excited to announce that they have been confirmed as the Overall Winner of the DAME Design Awards 2018 at the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam.
Our generator replacement technology Integrel, created by UK-based Triskel Marine, 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 the top boat, interior and industrial experts, alongside leading naval architects, with nominees divided into categories including functionality, the practicality of use and innovation.
Triskel Marine 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 the game-changing Integrel product to market.”
For Triskel Marine, based in Cornwall, 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 winners of the Boatbuilder Awards, which Triskel have entered alongside Discovery Yachts, are to be announced this evening.
