EC-OG were this month named as ‘Rising Stars’ in the European Business Awards for the Environment.

After being shortlisted to represent the UK, EC-OG’s Subsea Power Hub was put forward in the ‘Product’ category to the European Business Awards for the Environment jury.

With 161 applications from 19 different countries across Europe, 22 overall Finalists for the ceremony were selected as well as 6 Rising Stars. As a Rising Star, the application made a particular impression on the jurors as an innovative and exciting product.

The Subsea Power Hub (SPH) is a subsea hybrid drive system that uses a combination of a marine energy converter coupled directly to a lithium based energy storage system. The SPH provides localised electrical power to remote subsea locations by converting ocean currents into renewable power.

Organised by the Directorate-General for the Environment European Commission, the European Business Awards for the Environment play a key role in the European Commission’s mission to promote a circular economy, innovation and participation in green markets across European companies. The Awards are held every two years to reward businesses that successfully combine innovation, competitiveness and outstanding environmental performance.

Richard Knox, managing director of EC-OG, said: “It’s great that our team has been identified as undertaking some of the best environmental innovation in Europe. From such a high number of applications, we are thrilled to be 1 of 6 Rising Star companies. This accolade means a lot for EC-OG, recognising the first-class work that we do.”
