Decom North Sea (DNS) has announced the launch of the fourth annual Decom Awards; the only industry accolades dedicated to decommissioning excellence across the global energy industry.

With four categories available to enter this year, the Awards have been designed to showcase the expertise, collaboration and on-going innovation which are providing tangible benefits to the decommissioning sector. The winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on 21 May as the culmination of DNS’ Decom Week, which replaces the traditional Decom Offshore conference. As the largest, global decommissioning event, it comprises 5 days of live streamed events, tech talks, technical demonstrations and more, from around the world.

Discussing the Awards, Decom North Sea’s interim Managing Director, Will Rowley says, “In common with our energy industry colleagues, decommissioning has felt the effects wrought by the circumstances of the past year. However, whilst we have experienced both industry and external challenges, our sector has continued to operate and innovate.”

“Throughout the past year, DNS has worked hard to represent and promote our decommissioning supply chain as the global leader in its field, with the ability to export capability and expertise. The Decom North Sea Awards play an important role in this objective, whilst we celebrate some of the outstanding work undertaken across the sector during 2020,” adds Rowley.

Categories for the Decom Awards 2021 are:

  • Excellence in Collaboration Award
  • Technical Innovation in Decommissioning Award
  • Rising Star in Decommissioning Award
  • Decom North Sea Member Award

Entries are open from now until Friday 19 March 2021. Category submissions can be made either in traditional written format or – new for 2021 – via video recording. Submissions are welcome from all companies operating in the offshore decommissioning sector, with categories, criteria and application forms available at https://decomnorthsea.com/events/the-decom-north-sea-awards-2021.
