EIC announces finalists for National Awards Dinner
25 August, 2017
The Energy Industries Council (EIC), the leading trade association for companies that supply goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, has announced the shortlist of finalists for its National Awards Dinner taking place in London on 12 October and featuring entertainment from TV personality and comedian Jimmy Carr.
Eighteen EIC member companies are competing for awards across six categories:
Finalists for the Collaboration Award are Aiken Group, Costain and Petrofac.
In the running for the Diversification Award are ALE, ENGIE Fabricom and Fluorocarbon.
The candidates for the Export Award are Carpenter & Paterson, PJ Valves and S3 ID.
Competing for the Innovation Award are HR Wallingford, Reflex Marine and Servelec.
The finalists for the Optimisation Award are Booth Welsh, Hayward Tyler and Weir Engineering Services.
Contesting the Technology Award are ABLE, IMI Precision Engineering and VEGA Controls.
The winners will be announced at the EIC’s National Awards Dinner on 12 October, which is being held at one of London’s most iconic venues, 8 Northumberland Avenue. The evening will feature a three-course menu followed by after dinner entertainment from Jimmy Carr.
The six categories are based on the strategies identified in the acclaimed EIC Survive & Thrive Insight Report as being crucial for energy companies of all sizes and sectors to flourish during the current challenging energy markets. The report was released earlier this year to feed into the government’s industrial energy strategy.
In addition to the six awards, the EIC will also use the occasion to announce the recipient of its EIC Rising Star Award. The EIC has partnered with Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University (RGU) on this brand-new initiative to develop future leaders of the oil and gas industry.
The winner of the award, chosen from candidates from EIC member companies, will receive full tuition fees (worth £16,500) for the RGU’s MBA Oil and Gas Management course, starting in January 2018.
Commenting on the awards ceremony EIC CEO Stuart Broadley said, ‘This gala evening is about celebrating the incredible work that the UK supply chain does day in, day out.
‘The award categories highlight that we recognise the challenges facing our members in the energy industries, and have evolved and enhanced our offering to help them flourish even during the downturn, ensuring they have the tools and support to thrive in the new energy landscape as well as making sure that in the EIC they have an ambassador increasingly communicating their needs and concerns at governmental level.’
