The best foiling performances and projects of 2022 were awarded in Milan after an online vote from the global foiling community.
The prizegiving ceremony of the sixth edition of the Foiling Awards took place at the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, in front of an audience of more than 250 guests consisting of members of the Foiling Industry, journalists and project partners.
President and Founder Luca Rizzotti of We Are Foiling highlighted how the growing importance of the Awards can be attributed to the activity carried out by The Foiling Organization, the new network of comparison and development for the Foiling Industry and professionals worldwide conceived and promoted by We Are Foiling.
Artemis Technologies’ Artemis EF-24 Passenger ferry won the Commercial Project Award as the best project of 2022 for commercial use, which Gianni Cariboni, founder and owner of Cariboni Marine Hydraulic Systems virtually awarded to Artemis Technologies’ CEO Dr. Iain Percy OBE.
Other vessels nominated for the award were the Artemis EF-12 Workboat, BAR Technologies’ BARTech 30 and Candela’s P-12 Shuttle.
Iain said of the win:
“The technology that we’ve produced, like the Artemis eFoiler®, found its home in the America’s Cup and the emergence of hydrofoiling in that competition. I’m immensely proud not just to win with our Artemis EF-24 Passenger, but to get second place as well with our Artemis EF-12 Workboat.
“We’re delighted to win with our 24 metre, 150 passenger ferry which is really going to revolutionise public transport and we’re excited to first launch it here in Belfast.”
