Wallenius Marine Master Finalist in Seafarer of the Year

Wallenius Marine is proud to announce that our Master Fredrik Krysén is a finalist as Seafarer of the Year in the L'loyds List Asia Award 2017.

It was in June, the crew onboard m/v UNDINE and Master Fredrik Krysén successfully rescued 13 people in the Malaccan Straits. UNDINE was on her way to Singapore when the crew suddenly sighted floating containers and debris in the water. A few minutes later they saw people in life rafts, stopped and reversed the engines and launched the rescue boat. Less than an hour later, all 13 had been safely and successfully rescued.

Fredrik Krysén's actions during this incident has now rendered a nomination in the L'loyds List Asia Award 2017 in the prestigious Seafarer of the Year Award. The winner will be announced at an event on October 26 at the Singapore's Shangri La Hotel.

See all finalists



Best of luck in on October 26, Fredrik!
