Energy Team Score Two Award Nominations For Outstanding Contribution To Scottish Renewables
The awards celebrate success across Scotland’s renewables sector, recognising the determination of the people, communities and organisations behind some of the country’s most innovative green energy projects.
Our team is shortlisted in the Outstanding Service Award, while Operations Director Mike Tavern – who leads the energy infrastructure team – has been nominated for this year’s Outstanding Contribution Award.
The nominations reflect the fact that Sweco has been involved in delivering more than 40 per cent of Scotland’s installed onshore wind capacity.
In shortlisting Mike, the organisers have recognised the impact he has had on the Scottish onshore wind sector and his commitment to developing young talent. Since 2007, his team has grown from one to 45 employees across Edinburgh and Glasgow, providing infrastructure design, engineering and environmental services.
In addition to these nominations, the Clyde Wind Farm Extension, a project in which Sweco has been heavily involved, is also in the running for the Sustainable Development category.
Andy King, director of energy at Sweco UK, said: “We are passionate about helping Scotland achieve its renewable energy targets and these nominations are testimony to the tireless determination, commitment and technical innovation our teams provide our partners.
“Mike has made a significant contribution to Scottish onshore wind generation over the last decade and his nationally-recognised expertise has been vital to the growth we’ve achieved. He encourages a culture of innovation and continuous improvement and the testaments of his industry peers speak for themselves.”
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Thursday 30th November.
