TRAC has been shortlisted in the Innovation category of this year’s Press and Journal Energy Voice Gold Awards for its industry-leading TracTec technology. The TracTec is set to transform offshore inspection, cleaning and repair solutions within the notoriously inaccessible splash zone.
In its simplest terms, TracTec is a large-scale clamp, which is remotely deployed from any platform to enable the safe inspection, maintenance and repair of all types, sizes and configurations of caissons and conductors, negating the need for divers, ROVs and DSVs.
The Gold Awards are held in association with Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) to celebrate excellence in the UK energy sector.
The innovation accolade – sponsored by Balmoral Group – is aimed at the people behind projects securing the industry’s future. The winner will be announced at a ceremony at the Chester Hotel, Aberdeen, on September 6.
ASI chairman Martin Gilbert said: “Congratulations to all of the finalists who have been shortlisted. The quality of submissions is testament to the talent, professionalism and innovative outlook of the energy industry. The judges face a difficult task in the next stage among so many worthy candidates.”
Business Delivery Manager Jan Stander said: ”We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award which recognises the focus TRAC places on developing new solutions for our clients and the expertise and ingenuity of the team.
“We also value collaboration and the benefit it brings – working with ToolTec on this specific project, supported by OGTC, has enabled us to pool our respective expertise and has led to a solution which has enormous safety and cost benefits for the oil and gas industry as a whole.”
