A Perth man is celebrating after being named Engineer of the Year at the Gas Industry Awards 2016.
Innovation Project Manager Jamie McAinsh, based out of SGN’s Edinburgh office, received his award at a ceremony at London’s Hilton Park Lane hotel. The annual event, organised by the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) and The Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA), is the Oscars of the gas industry.
Jamie has been the project manager for the ‘Opening up the Gas Market’ project since 2013. The multi award-winning project sees the trial new variations of gas in SGN’s network in Oban, which could lead to lower prices and more secure gas resources if used throughout Great Britain. Jamie has been pivotal to the phenomenal success of this project, SGN said.
SGN CEO John Morea said: “These annual industry awards really do recognise and reward the outstanding achievements of individuals and businesses across our industry. We’re extremely proud that Jamie and his achievements in Oban have been honoured by our industry.
“With Jamie’s Engineer of the Year Award win, we took home a grand total of three awards at this year’s ceremony. We’re delighted to not just have won these three awards, but we were also the only company to have been shortlisted in all 10 categories. This is testament to the tremendously skilled and dedicated people we have at SGN.”
