At a gala dinner last night, Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) announced the winners of its Business Awards 2012.
The auditorium at Energus was packed with over 200 VIP guests and representatives of Cumbrian businesses of all scopes and scales, from major players such as the co-sponsors, NuGen and EnergySolutions, to less familiar names, including Safety Critical, NuExec Consulting and The Learning Planet.
“The awards attracted a diverse entry from across the BECBC membership,” said BECBC Chairman, Sean Balmer. “We had categories celebrating innovation, excellence in health and safety and sustainabilty as well as commitment to West Cumbria, people and skills development and entrepreneurship so the awards are a recognition of the different contributions that successful businesses make to the area.”
The BECBC Business Awards 2012 were hosted by Kim Inglis and representatives of the sponsoring companies announced and presented the awards during a glittering evening. The winners were as follows:

As Sean Balmer concluded: “These organisations – not only the winners but also all the companies that were shortlisted for an award - play a vital part in the energy supply chain and infrastructure of the region. Their strengths and skills will be invaluable for the future of Britain’s Energy Coast and forenergy developments elsewhere in the UK and beyond in years to come.”
