September 17: NOF Energy Limited: PD Ports crowned Business of the Year at annual excellence awards

PD Ports, one of the UK's major port groups has won the coveted title of Business of the Year 2019 at the Rail Freight Group's (RFG) annual awards ceremony.

The port operator took the top prize with the judges praising its outstanding commitment to its customers and to the wider local community in the North East.

The judges were particularly impressed by PD Ports' show of industry leadership in the way it promotes rail freight services, especially across the North, and by launching a second weekly service to Scotland at the business' own financial risk.

This second weekly service, known as the Teesport Express, was launched last year and combines ferry and rail to replace an alternative ferry service form Rosyth to Zeebrugge which had been withdrawn by its operator.

PD Ports recognised the need to bring about an alternative solution for customers, enabling cargo to be moved more easily to Scotland, with the only existing options in addition to Teesport being to bring it by water to Felixstowe or the Humber and then completing its journey by road.

Five years after the launch of the company's Intermodal Rail Terminal at Teesport, the investment has taken the port from strength to strength. The port operator now offers more daily connections to Scotland than any other port in the North.

Frans Calje, PD Ports' CEO, said: "We are delighted to have won this award, as it highlights our promise to deliver the very best customer service, as well as our ongoing commitment to getting more goods moving by rail.

"The fact that the Teesport Express service could be commissioned so quickly demonstrates the strength of the relationships that we hold with our partners within the supply chain as we were able to influence decision-making with ferry and rail operators to get an entirely new service up and running.

"Customer care is the lifeblood of our business and is embedded in every department, location and function across the UK.

September 02: NOF Energy Limited: Collaboration through CNNS pool for Peterson

Collaboration within the offshore energy industry has never been more important and mutually beneficial. Vessel sharing in the North Sea and beyond ensures efficiencies for companies that cannot be achieved when operating in isolation. One example of an initiative that highlights the value in sharing resources is the CNNS Pool, developed by energy logistics provider Peterson.

Over the last two years, Peterson has delivered proven and significant operational and financial efficiency gains to three oil and gas operators in the North Sea through the CNNS Pool.

Additionally, Peterson has successfully managed vessel sharing in the Southern North Sea for more than two decades. Under the pool's collaborative approach, Peterson acts both as an independent facilitator and a vessel charterer.

Technological expertise and a resource-sharing culture place Peterson in the ideal position to facilitate collaboration between companies. A suite of tools and advanced algorithms developed by Peterson ensure efficient voyage planning and an accurate and transparent allocation of costs to each company, with all the voyage costs apportioned correctly and fairly.

With Northern North Sea cargo runs averaging 20 hours and Central North Sea runs averaging 12 hours, Peterson is able to drive the passage time down by up to 50% which can equate to saving over Pound1m per vessel per year.

The CNNS pool members are already experiencing the benefits of Peterson's system, including maximising efficiency through combining volumes, distance and capacity; increased flexibility in schedules; minimising exposure to the environment by dramatically reducing sailing distances and vessels, all while delivering costs savings and maximised safety.

The CNNS Pool is a prime example of collaborative sharing in the offshore industry.

Orbital Marine Power Ltd (Orbital), the world's leading developer of floating tidal stream turbines, have awarded the main manufacturing contract for the company's first commercial O2 tidal turbine to Scottish based TEXO Group who will carry out the work at their quayside facilities in Dundee.

Andrew Scott, Orbital's Chief Executive Officer, said: "This is a flagship engineering project for the emerging tidal sector and we are delighted to be working with TEXO Group to showcase the very capable supply chain we are fortunate to have around us in Scotland and the wider UK."

"The results that we achieved with the SR2000 over the past two years are a convincing validation of our low-cost approach to generating clean, predictable power from tidal stream energy.
