“Shipping industry is on the verge of opening up to a major revolution in the way it works. It needs to achieve rapid decarbonisation as per IMO’s targets.

I hereby announce Aries group’s “Green vision”. Through our Engineering and inspection arm, Aries Marine, we promise to commit a significant share of our engineering resources to assisting ship owners and managers in their efforts to go green. It will be our voluntary contribution to the industry in this challenging phase of transformation. I hope our team of qualified engineers and surveyors rise to the occasion and dedicate their efforts to finding optimal solutions to the shipping industry in its era of transformation.
