Armada Technologies Name Green StartUp of the Year at STARTUP Awards Finals

Armada Technologies, has been named as the Green StartUp at the North West finals of the StartUp Awards 2023 in Liverpool.

Armada Technologies is currently developing the world’s first ‘passive air lubrication system.’ PALS is a patented, award-winning system that operates in a passive mode, and enables discreet control of system output with the complete decoupling of system lubricity from ship speed. In doing so PALS can deliver optimal boundary layer aeration at any prevailing operating condition. PALS will help drive the clean maritime agenda in the reduction of fuel consumption further and faster!

The StartUp Awards were established in 2022 to highlight the success of StartUps across nine UK nations and regions, and to celebrate the achievements of entrepreneurs in all sectors of the economy.

The North West final was held at Camp and Furnace in Liverpool and saw 28 different awards given out to new businesses in categories such as Education and Training StartUp of the Year, Green StartUp of the Year and Technology Services StartUp of the Year.

Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, creator of the awards, said the events have celebrated the best new firms in the UK and recognised the amazing entrepreneurial talent across the nation. He said: “In the second year of the North West Startup Awards, we have seen yet again the incredible contribution of new businesses to job creation, innovation, and prosperity across the whole of this entrepreneurial nation. It’s been an honour and a pleasure to read the stories of those individuals from across the North West who have spotted the opportunity and taken the risk to launch their own venture, especially at a time when the economy is still fragile after the Covid pandemic.

The StartUp Awards is a collaboration between the founders of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards – an established programme nationally receiving over 5,000 applications annually – and the Wales Start-Up Awards, the only regional awards currently celebrating new businesses in the UK. The StartUp Awards recognises the achievements of those amazing individuals who have had a great idea, spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new product or service.

Armada Technologies is an affiliate of the EcoOne® Marine Technologies Group through collaborating with Ecochlor, Inc., a company focused in energy efficient, innovative, environmentally-friendly maritime technologies. For more information about Armada Technologies go to
