Celebrating Engineering in the Humber Region with the IChemE
OSL has a longstanding relationship with the IChemE, particularly our status as a Silver Corporate Partner and involvement with their Accredited Company Training Scheme (ACTS). In 2016, following meetings between some of our Process Engineers and the IChemE Hull and Humber Committee, an event was created in the form of the Annual Group Dinner.
This year’s edition was another huge success, with OSL sponsoring a table for ten. Our attendees included Principal Director Alastair Robertson, who is a Fellow of the IChemE, Elvis Hernandez-Perdomo, Director of OSL Risk Management, a selection of specialists from our teams, and two of our clients as guests. In total, around 150 attended the drinks reception and black tie dinner at the Britannia Royal Hotel Hull on Thursday 16 November.
The evening was an excellent opportunity for experts in the local Chemical Engineering sector to get together for networking, enjoy inspiring speeches, and of course celebrate the last year’s accomplishments. This included the bestowing of awards, one of which we’re delighted to say was won by OSL for Best Technical Presentation.
The guest speakers were IChemE Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer Justin Blades, and IChemE Past President Jonathan Seville, pictured with Elvis and Alastair during the receipt of our prestigious award.
We would like to take a moment to thank the IChemE once again for the many benefits that the organisation offers to OSL and our staff. With many of our engineers well on their way to becoming Chartered, and numerous success stories in our portfolio, membership to the IChemE is advantageous for individuals, our company as a whole, our clients, and the wider engineering landscape.
