Ian Jones, Managing Director at Warrant Group, said: "We're thrilled to have been shortlisted for the innovation category in this year's Mersey Maritime Industry Awards.
"Winning it would be testament to the hard work and innovative thinking of our staff as well as the investment that we as a company have made. We're looking forward to a great awards night!"
Chris Shirling-Rooke, Chief Executive, Mersey Maritime, said: "The number and quality of entries for the 2017 MMIAs has risen for the third consecutive year, which will make for an exciting awards evening when the winners are announced on 9th March.
"The response from companies operating in the maritime and related industries here in the UK's North West proves without doubt that 'Liverpool is back'- the theme we have chosen for this year's awards."
