The award was presented to Thyson by the National Grid Leadership Team.

The Process Safety Awards are open to all UK contractors working on National Grid projects. The award aims to raise the profile of process safety within National Grid’s project delivery supply chain and to recognise those who demonstrate excellence in protecting health and safety on site.

The work was carried out as part of the Enhanced Gas Management Project (EGMP), an initiative to upgrade gas quality analysis systems at all of National Grid’s distribution sites across the UK.

Under the scheme, Thyson is in the process of delivering upgrades at eight locations across the UK, with the project scheduled for completion in December this year.

Mike Braddock, managing director of Thyson Technology, said: “Safety will always be our top priority across every aspect of our business, and we have robust systems in place to ensure this is the case – but it’s encouraging for these efforts to be recognised by awards such as this.

“The EGMP team in particular has worked hard to ensure National Grid’s own safety guidelines and our own are completely integrated, and this award is testament to how well our people have worked alongside client-side teams throughout the complex project delivery process.”

The EGMP project is one of two large framework agreements Thyson is delivering for National Grid. The other, a flow-weighted average caloric values (FWACV) project, involved upgrades to gas analysis and monitoring systems at a further 23 National Grid sites.

Thyson Technology systems allow its customers to measure key parameters of their processes by automatically delivering samples of the process material into advanced analysis tools which play a critical role in various industrial applications around the world.
