Employee Awards Record Year | Vital Energi

The presentation of Vital Energi's inaugural Employee Awards in December marked the end of another successful year for the sustainable energy company.

Six awards were presented at Vital Energi's Christmas Party to reward and recognise outstanding achievement from individuals and teams during the year. These included the Safety Award, High Achiever Award, Innovation Award, Leadership Award, Team Award and Employee of the Year Award.

Vital Energi completed a record number of projects during 2012 and turnover increased by 67 per cent in the 2011/2012 financial year. Major projects completed in 2012 included the first phase of the high-profile King’s Cross development and a new community energy scheme supplying the 704-home Athlete's Village, the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Glasgow. 

Overcoming the challenges of working in London during the Olympics, Vital Energi also completed several other projects in the capital including a new energy centre and district heating network in Bunhill, Islington and new affordable heating and hot water solutions for Shoreditch, Gascoyne and Haggerston West & Kingsland -  four of the most rundown estates in Hackney, London.

Winners of Vital Energi's inaugural Employee Awards included the Wyndford Estate Project Team who picked up the Team Award. Wyndford, Glasgow is one of several Vital Energi schemes which are helping to tackle fuel poverty in deprived areas. At Wyndford, Vital Energi was responsible for the detailed design and delivery, in less than 11 months, of a new community energy system for more than 1,500 homes – one of the largest contracts ever to be completed in such a tight timeframe.

The project included the design and installation of a CHP energy centre, a district heating network, riser and lateral pipework, the internal heating system, HIUs and metering solutions for all 1,500 homes.

The University of York Project Team won the Safety Award for its outstanding health and safety standards during the design and installation of a low carbon biomass and CHP-fuelled community heating system as part of the Universitys £750 million campus expansion programme.

And the Innovation Award went to the creator of Vital Energi's brand new smart metering system vPro:ems which was launched in 2012 and is the most secure, flexible and resilient heat metering solution currently available on the market.

Ian Whitelock, joint managing director of Vital Energi, said: "Vital Energi's new Employee Awards reward and recognise the outstanding contribution made by our staff in 2012."

"Last year was a record year for Vital Energi and we couldn’t have done it without their hard work and support."
