Congratulations to our Awards Winners and Runner Up

Early Years Industry Award 2023 Winner

EEMUA is pleased to announce that the winner of its Early Years Industry Award 2023 is Rana Abdalla, an Electrical Engineer at BP. The award recognises the efforts of new starters within the engineering field in EEMUA member companies, demonstrating their communication skills, engineering application and leadership in their specific specialism. Unfortunately, Rana was unable to attend the Dinner and her award was accepted by Geoff Evans, CEng FIMechE, Senior Advisor – Pressure Equipment at BP. 


Early Years Industry Award 2023 Runner Up

In recognition of the high quality of entries this year, a ‘runners-up’ prize was presented to Cameron Millar, a Mechanical Engineer at INEOS O&P UK. The judges were impressed with Cameron’s achievement in implementing a sustainable and cost efficient methodology of inspecting buried pipework which ended up reducing the cost by over 70 percent. 

Also shortlisted for the award were Heather Legan of BP, Daniel Phillips of SSE, and Hannah Mohsen of Solutia UK.


Stuart Turner Award 2023 Winner

The recipient of this year’s Stuart Turner Award is Huw Jones, Regional Electrical Engineering SME at Dow Silicones UK. Established to honour the memory of Stuart Turner, an enthusiastic advocate for all things EEMUA, the award recognises an employee of a member organisation who has made a significant contribution to the work EEMUA does. 

Huw impressed the Awards Committee with his involvement in EEMUA activities and the invaluable contributions he has provided over many years. This has included being an active chair for the EEMUA Electrical Committee for 11 years and being involved as a working group member contributing to key projects, including revision of the leading guidance on potentially explosive atmospheres, EEMUA 186. Also shortlisted for the award were Katherine Asvegren of SSE and Matthijs Kock of Vopak.
