IChemE Global Awards

ENGIE Fabricom UK Shortlisted in the Global IChemE Awards

By | Awards

We are extremely proud to announce that we have been named as a finalist in the Team award at this year’s prestigious IChemE Global Awards.


This award identifies the best team responsible for implementing and/or developing initiatives, products, projects, processes or services.  To have been recognised for our efforts in a project that we successfully completed on behalf of NIPPON GOHSEI (NGUK) at its EVOH plant based in Hull is true testament to the team’s commitment to continuous improvement.


As part of an essential maintenance shutdown, our team worked alongside Nippon Gohsei (NGUK) to develop a conceptual design for a temporary flare system using technology provided by Zeeco, and with the operational support of INEOS, took this through detailed engineering, construction and commissioning. Together, we delivered an outcome which enabled the NGUK plant to continue business operations, whilst ensuring management of this temporary change was carried out with the highest level of plant integrity and process safety.


The winners of the global awards will be announced on 7th November 2019 at the Double Tree by Hilton, Hull.  The ceremony in Hull is just one of the several international events by IChemE to celebrate the achievements of the chemical engineering profession.


We are very much looking forward to raising a glass in celebration of the exceptional companies throughout the room.

ISO 45001

ENGIE Fabricom is one of the first organisations to achieve ISO 45001 in their industry sector

By | Awards

ENGIE Fabricom UK achieves ISO 45001 certification on the first attempt.

We recently underwent a process of migration from the OHSAS 18001 standard to the new ISO 45001 standard with Lloyds register and were successful with no non-conformances identified.

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.

ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.

The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.  It takes into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.

Kevin Copley, HSEQ Director for ENGIE Fabricom comments: “We have been advised that we are one of the first organisations in our industry sector in this region of the UK to be certified to the standard by Lloyd’s Register.  This is a fantastic achievement for the Company.”

Certificate of Achievement for Jawwad Sabir

By | Awards

On behalf of everyone at ENGIE Fabricom we would like to congratulate Jawwad Sabir on achieving Chartered Chemical Engineer status awarded by the IChemE.  This is a great personal achievement for Jawwad; Chartered Engineer status is an internationally recognised and respected mark of competence and demonstrates commitment to the engineering profession.

Simon Lewis, Consultancy Manager commented:  “This is a great personal milestone in Jawwad’s career, and thoroughly deserved.  Becoming a Chartered Engineer is an important achievement for an individual as this recognises a level of attainment and professionalism within the discipline, but equally it is important for our organisation to have individuals who are recognised by their relevant professional body, as this helps to demonstrate the capabilities within the business.  Well done, Jawwad.”

Congratulations again from everyone at ENGIE Fabricom on achieving the gold standard qualification for professionals in chemical, biochemical and process engineering.
