UAV inspection, survey and asset management firm Cyberhawk has received an industry stamp of approval by making the shortlist for two business awards.
The company has announced it has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Offshore Achievement Awards, organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineer (SPE) Aberdeen Section.
Cyberhawk’s internal pilot training scheme, which is renowned internationally as being one of the best industry practices, has been shortlisted in the Skills Development Award while founder Malcolm Connolly’s contribution to the growth of UAVs in the energy industry has been recognised with a nomination in the Above & Beyond category.
A spokesperson for the company said: “We’re extremely proud of this achievement and looking forward to attending the ceremony in Aberdeen in March, where we’ll be waiting in anticipation to hear the winners’ names called out.”
The nominations come days after the company was awarded a three-year framework with one of the UK’s largest renewable energy operators.
As part of the framework, Cyberhawk will undertake wind turbine blade inspections across the operator’s network throughout the UK and Ireland.
Cyberhawk CEO, Chris Fleming, said: “We continue to make great inroads in renewable energy as a result of our UAV data collection and asset management software, iHawk.
“We are experiencing an increase of work in this sector which is highlighted by this recent framework award, and will continue to work closely with renewable energy suppliers around the globe to develop solutions which meet their needs.”
