“I am most honoured to be elected as a Fellow of RINA. This recognition is both very humbling and rewarding. I am excited about the future and look forward to continuing my support of Wärtsilä’s market shaping efforts as the industry navigates through a period of dramatic change. The company is a leader in gas initiatives in support of sustainable shipping, and our naval architecture and marine engineering experts are playing a major role in this work,” says John Hatley.
