Lucky Number Seven for Vital Projects
We are really excited to announce that Vital Energi has seven shortlisted projects at the Heating and Ventilation News Awards 2018 which will take place in April.
The H&V News Awards, now in their 24th year of running, mark a celebration of excellence in the industry and is one of the most prestigious events within the mechanical and engineering sector. This year’s ceremony will take place on 19th April at the Grosvenor House Hotel, and Vital Energi will be cheering their clients on as the winner announcements take place.
Receiving shortlisting in the categories of Retrofit Project of the Year, District Heating Project of the Year, and Collaboration of the Year, a total of five projects have been honoured with this latest achievement.
The details of the finalists are:

Abby Whitelock, Marketing Manager at Vital Energi, commented, “This is such a fantastic achievement and we are extremely pleased for all our clients who have been shortlisted. All of the projects are truly deserving of this success and have been a pleasure to work on. We wish all of our teams and clients the best of luck on the night, and fingers crossed we will be celebrating with them.”
The awards are particularly important for Vital Energi, as they include the only dedicated district heating award in the UK. Success was last seen in 2016 when Camden Council’s Somers Town Heat Network achieved District Heating Project of the Year.blog comments powered by Disqus
