Leading robotic tank cleaning company, Re-Gen Robotics has been recognised with three awards at the Energy Industries Council Awards 2021, including the prestigious Company of the Year Award.
The awards ceremony was held virtually on Thursday 2nd December and celebrates the best and brightest supply chain companies in the energy sector. More than 60 companies competed for 15 EIC Awards, including the coveted EIC Company of the Year Award.
The Newry based company lifted the Innovation Award for delivering enhanced products, services and strategies to meet specific client needs and for building differentiation in the sector; the Sustainability Award for taking responsibility as part of their business strategy, to conserve natural resources and protect global ecosystems and the Company of the Year Award which was decided based upon their best practice scores from the EIC’s 57 industry judges.
In the last 33 months, Re-Gen Robotics has eliminated 10,000 plus hours of confined space entry cleaning. Over 30 tanks consisting of white oil, black oil and distillate tanks in gas plants have been cleaned and the first worldwide, 100% no man entry tank cleans for oil majors such as Shell, Phillips 66 and Vermilion, have been completed.
Presenting the Company of the Year Award, EIC President Campbell Keir said it was his “pleasure and a privilege to present the very well-deserved award” to Re-Gen Robotics and praised them for applying their 100% no man entry robotics technology to “reduce the personal risk of a routine activity that many people are not aware of but is an essential industry task.”
Managing director of Re-Gen Robotics, Fintan Duffy said: “On behalf of my team, I am enormously proud to receive these awards.
“We have invested significantly in our growth plans since our company launch in 2019, recruiting new staff, investing in our incredibly talented people, our equipment, processes and facilities.
“Our technological innovations and new ways of thinking are all transforming the approach we are taking to eliminate accidents, harm to people and to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.
“This is an opportunity for the team to pause for a moment to reflect on and enjoy the fruits of their hard work and the awards themselves give new customers that added touch of confidence when they choose to work with us for the first time.”
