IChemE Team Award

Team Award presented to ENGIE Fabricom at the IChemE’s Global Awards Evening

By | Awards, Corporate News

Winner – Team Award – IChemE’s Global Award Evening

 

We are thrilled to announce that ENGIE Fabricom was crowned with the highly acclaimed Team Award at last weeks’ 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 and awarded for our efforts in a project that we have successfully completed on behalf of Nippon Gohsei (NGUK) at its EVOH Plant base in Hull is a true testament to the team’s complete commitment and dedication to continuous improvement, placing the success of the project above any individual organisational interest.

This project was a collaboration between Nippon Gohsei, INEOS, ENGIE Fabricom, and Zeeco to design and install a temporary flaring solution enabling Nippon Gohsei’s EVOH Plant to continue manufacturing whilst its permanent flaring facility was non-operational due to turnaround activities. The project was completed within 7 months from concept to commissioning, seemingly a ‘near-impossible’ task from the outset. As a result, over 2000 tonnes of product were manufactured which otherwise would have been lost.

A great evening was had by all and we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the very deserving winners of the evening.

Well done to all involved.

External Auditors Praise ENGIE Fabricom’s Recent Audits

By | Corporate News

We are delighted to have, once again, received highly successful feedback from two recent audits carried out at our facilities.

The first, undertaken by Lloyds Register, consisted of a five-day audit of our management systems and the implementation of arrangements to ensure health and safety of our employees meets the rigorous standards as demanded by BS ISO 45001.

The second audit conducted by Achilles reviewed our quality, health and safety and environmental standards as well as our corporate social responsibility. It was carried out over two days and forms part of the UVDB B2 assessment process. This is a process used by all major utility organisations and a successful outcome is mandatory to work within the utilities sector – including a key requirement from some of our clients – which is why we prioritise ensuring we adhere to such standards at all times.

Both audits were extremely positive. In particular, we were extremely pleased with the representative’s feedback – from both Lloyds and Achilles – specifically commending individuals they met with at ENGIE Fabricom, identifying the openness, friendliness and professionalism of everyone involved.

Having such high standards is extremely important to us as it continues the precedence set and is adopted throughout the full culture of the business. We would like to thank the representatives from both Lloyds Register and Achilles, and all our employees for continually delivering to the very best of their abilities.

Paul Carvill, COO ENGIE Fabricom

ENGIE Fabricom UK Unveils Ambitious Plans to Grow the Multi-Million Pound Business

By | Corporate News, Investment

One of the UK’s leading engineering and construction companies – ENGIE Fabricom UK – has introduced a new organisational structure that will drive the business to reach its ambitious target of achieving a turnover of £150m by 2022.

 

Operating from five sites across the UK – including Grimsby, Immingham, Lowestoft, Stokesley and Middlesbrough – the business has restructured its management team and made three senior appointments as it strives to modernise operations and adopt a more holistic approach throughout the full organisation.

 

And the new approach forms part of ENGIE Fabricom’s plans to grow in the decarbonisation of energy space, raising its client base in sectors including the offshore wind and energy from waste sectors.  This comes on the back of the business having already worked on major offshore wind projects including SSE and Npower’s Greater Gabbard, Lynn and Inner Dowsing, the Humber Gateway and Ørsted’s Burbo Bank.

 

Speaking about this new team-based approach, Richard Webster, CEO at ENGIE Fabricom said:  “Now is absolutely the right time to adopt this more circular approach as we make the shift from our workforce historically delivering on oil and gas Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects to capitalising on market opportunities – like the renewables sector – where there is a huge demand for the skills of our workforce.

 

“This is very much focused around working as one team with a simple, well organised and robust structure to ensure that our greatest asset – our people – is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to forging a culture whereby we continue to learn, develop and attract and retain great talent.

 

“With a track record for delivering high levels of customer service, we believe this approach will help us strengthen the existing relationships we already have, as well as attract new clients who are keen to take advantage of our capabilities in the increasingly competitive green sector.”

 

Heading up the new initiative alongside Richard is Paul Carvill, newly appointed COO (pictured above) and the Company’s Managing Director, Craig Welford, who both have extensive experience in engineering, construction and project management, along with Finance Director, Claire Bateman and HSEQ Director, Kevin Copley.

 

As part of the restructure the business has seen four senior figures appointed into new roles including Clive Rounce, who is now Head of Continuous Improvement, Nick Maynard, Head of Procurement, as well as Jo Fox, Head of Finance, and Andrew Stephens, Head of Business Development.

 

To bolster the team, new appointments have also included an Interim Commercial Director, Mark Bryant, who has over 35 years’ global experience in the power industries and a new Proposal Manager, David Livingstone, who has a strong commercial background in risk management.

 

Richard said: “With already a very healthy orderbook for 2019 and an ambitious pipeline, we are extremely confident that we have the right people in place to deliver and secure all our contracts as we strive to grow to a £150m business by 2022.

 

“To do this we will be working as one team to maximise delivery and continue to bring to the market the complete turnkey solutions we have become known for. By putting our people first and focusing on our future, we can make the best use of our resources to continuously improve and achieve a secure and sustainable future for our business.”

 

ENGIE Fabricom is part of the global energy group ENGIE, a 150-year-old energy and services provider with 150,000 employees operating across the world. The business provides a complete turnkey solution from project concept to completion across sectors including renewables, oil and gas, power, chemical and energy from waste. With over 43 years’ experience in high level engineering and construction the business employs 1000 highly skilled employees.

One team approach, audits

A one team approach for ENGIE Fabricom UK

By | Corporate News

A simple, well organised, strong structure – one team approach

At the end of 2018, ENGIE Fabricom UK rolled out an initiative to simplify and bring together the UK business as one team, by providing a clearly defined and simplified structure.

ENGIE Fabricom’s vision is to become a more customer focused organisation with their greatest asset; their people at the heart of everything they do.

The one team approach will ensure that the focus is on delivering successful projects with a culture that learns, develops, attracts and retains great talent.

Richard Webster, CEO for ENGIE Fabricom UK comments:  “After a successful 2018 and a healthy order book for 2019, we have set some ambitious targets that can be reached by working together.  At the heart of our new initiative is a simplified structure focused on becoming one team by listening to our customers, understanding what their goals are, what challenges they face and how we can support them.  Here at ENGIE Fabricom we combine the talents of our people with our experience of engineering and construction to provide innovative solutions across a variety of markets including the power, utilities, chemical and renewable sectors.

Our core values of professionalism, integrity, trust and team spirit are the heart of our business, ensuring the whole team aim to be their customers’ partner of choice.”

As a result of the restructure ENGIE Fabricom has also announced some key role changes within the Company.  Paul Carvill will take the position of Chief Operating Officer and continue to focus on the overall business strategy, operational excellence and customer experience.  Craig Welford as Managing Director will now oversee all operational activities across the whole of the UK.

The ‘One Team’ approach further strengthens our Company strategy of delivering end to end solutions to our customers and creating a sustainable business for the future.

Another successful year for ENGIE Fabricom UK

By | Corporate News

Engineering and construction company ENGIE Fabricom UK has achieved continued growth in 2018 under the leadership of a new CEO.

Richard Webster was appointed to the role in January and has forged ahead with the Company’s ongoing commitment to the decarbonisation of energy.

This has seen further expansion into its activities in the offshore wind and energy from waste sectors.

Prior to 2012, ENGIE Fabricom UK focused on large modular Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and construction work for the oil and gas sector.

It has since adopted a new strategy, targeting plant expansions and upgrades in niche sectors such as utilities, energy from waste, and renewables.

For example, in 2016, it was awarded a significant order from a major offshore wind operator to carry our remediation work on turbines off the coast of Suffolk.

Richard said: “As a Company, we have nearly 45 years’ consultancy, engineering, management and construction expertise across a variety of sectors.

“It’s our aim to bring this experience to the renewables industry where our reputation for providing innovative solutions without compromising on quality and safety is of great value.

“This year, we have launched a new website and design to more fully demonstrate our capabilities to clients and share news of the excellent work being carried out by the ENGIE Fabricom UK team.”

Successes over the last 12 months have included the expansion of ENGIE Fabricom UK’s Stokesley project offices, manufacturing and construction facilities along with their renewables office, with new recruits bolstering the engineering and design team to office capacity.

The business also operates from sites in Grimsby, Immingham, Lowestoft and Middlesbrough and its manufacturing and construction sites in Lincolnshire are currently busy with work on a number of significant projects.

As a reflection of its diversification into new markets, ENGIE Fabricom UK also attended the Renewables UK exhibition in Manchester and the Offshore Wind Conference in Hamburg as well as a number of skills fairs.

Richard said: “Our success is largely down to the professionalism and capabilities of our team so we have not only made new recruits throughout the business this year, but also invested in continued training and development for our employees.

“For example, four of our team have achieved prestigious Chartered Management Institute awards and we have gained the new ISO 45001 occupational health and safety standard at our first attempt.

“Furthermore, we have received recognition for our health and safety practices onsite at many of our projects alongside other positive feedback for the work we have done.

“This month also saw the roll out of Project Graphene which is a program to simplify and strengthen our management structure, bring the business together as one team and instill a positive and proactive culture.  The vision is to become a more customer focused organisation with our greatest asset; our people at the heart of everything we do and a collective goal of reaching a profitable turnover of £150m by 2022.”

“Our order book for 2019 is already looking very healthy and we are looking forward to another positive year ahead.”
