Sembmarine SLP Ltd Win Energy Award
– 15th September 2016
On Wednesday 14th September at The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) Awards and Gala Dinner 2016 Sembmarine SLP were announced as winners of the Best Energy Project Award sponsored by EDF Energy.
SLP were declared as finalists for the award after submitting an application highlighting the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm Substation project, specifically the way in which innovative, cost effective and environmentally friendly products and services were used such as the SPT Offshore suction bucket technology and the ALE Heavylift Mega Jack 800 jacking system, both used for the first time in the UK on this project.
Managing Director Paul Thomson and Project Manager Matthew Wooltorton presented to a “Dragons Den” style panel along with Mark Riemers from SPT and Richie Mason from ALE and were up against two other companies for the award, Softstart UK and EnerMech.
Matthew Wooltorton, SLP Project Manager, said: “This award is recognition for everyone who worked on the project to make it a success. It was completed on time and without a single lost time incident. Everyone at SLP should feel proud of this achievement, without their hard work and commitment none of this would be possible”.
Paul Thomson, SLP Managing Director, said: This is a tremendous award recognising the achievements in delivering the Dudgeon Offshore Substation safely and on schedule which is testament to all who contributed including our valued staff, supervision, workforce, suppliers and sub-contractors – “made in Lowestoft to provide renewable power to East Anglia”.

In September 2015 Sembmarine SLP was awarded the contract to carry out the construction of the Power Generation Module (PGM) and Bridge Links for the Maersk Oil Culzean project development in the North Sea.
The offshore facility has been designed, engineered, procured and constructed in Sembmarine SLP’s Lowestoft yard and includes suction bucket technology, a first for an offshore substation in UK waters. Part of Statoil’s £1.5 billion Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project to power more than 410,000 UK homes, the structures have been designed to meet exacting specifications.
