Subsea UK: Last Call for 2018 Awards Nominations

Industry body, Subsea UK has issued a final call for entries ahead of its 2018 business awards.

The awards recognise companies and individuals who are leading the way in Britain’s £9-billion subsea sector.

Entries are being sought for the subsea company of the year (large and small), the most promising young person in the sector, outstanding contribution by an individual to the industry and emerging enterprise.

The awards will also recognise achievements and innovations in technology, safety and exports.

Nominations can be made by Friday November 3, 2017.

An independent judging panel of industry leaders will score each entry according to the agreed criteria and the shortlist of finalists will be announced in January 2018.

Accolades will be presented at a gala dinner, organised by Subsea UK on February 8, during Subsea Expo, Europe’s largest subsea conference and exhibition.

Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “The UK is without a doubt the global subsea centre of excellence and despite the ongoing challenges, the sector has continued to demonstrate resilience. That’s why it’s more important than ever that we recognise and reward those who are ensuring the subsea sector continues to exploit opportunities, innovate, export, and develop its young people.”

Last year saw Hydro Group named Company of the Year and Ian Donald of Enpro was named the recipient of the Outstanding Contribution Award. Proserv won the award for innovation & technology; while Aidan O’Sullivan of Universal Pegasus, scooped the award for young emerging talent. EC-OG was crowned the Small Company of the Year and The Underwater Centre won the Innovation for Safety award. The global exports award went to JDR Cable Systems for its rapid expansion into key international markets.
