Congratulations to Mr. Timothy Meyers of Washington, D.C. for receiving the prestigious 2021 Coast Guard Engineer of the Year Award. Mr. Meyers works at the Coast Guard Office of Design and Engineering Standards where he leads regulatory developments for technically challenging design projects. Notably, Mr. Meyers has been working to create a regulatory path for the construction of a new hydrogen fuel cell passenger vessel with zero emissions. Additionally, Mr. Meyers helped to develop regulations for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), battery propulsion, and hydrogen gas as a marine fuel. He also consulted with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to develop regulations for green technologies, among still many other great accomplishments.
Mr. Meyers stated about the award:
“It’s a great honor for me to be recognized in this way .... We are living through an exciting era in technological change. I feel lucky to be in a job where I can bring my knowledge and experience to bear in addressing the safety challenges that come with advances in maritime technology, and impact the public in a meaningful way.”
Members of the maritime industry thank Mr. Meyers for his efforts to keep mariners safe on the job through improved technologies.
While the valiant efforts of the men and women in the Coast Guard continue to improve safety in the maritime industry, accidents and injuries still happen when proper care is not taken to protect our nation's seamen.
