Aberdeen firm Fennex announced as finalists in global energy awards marking its third industry nomination this year


A new offshore safety-related technology has secured Aberdeen firm Fennex Ltd a finalist position in the coveted Energy Institute (EI) Awards 2021.

Fennex has been shortlisted in the EI Awards Innovative Technology category for its breakthrough digital solution which is changing the face of the offshore industry’s safety reporting process.

This latest finalist position for Fennex marks its third industry awards nomination so far this year, having secured a place in the finals of both the Oil & Gas UK Awards and the SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA).

Fennex is being recognised for the design and implementation of its ground-breaking BBSS™ (Behavioural Based Safety Solution). The software harnesses the transformative power of digital tech to improve safety observation procedures across the oil and gas industry.

The Fennex team is delighted to have been recognised by such a prestigious award that showcases excellence in energy, “We are thrilled to be recognised for our role in assisting the energy industry transition toward a digital future,” said Adrian Brown, Fennex Managing Director.

“To sit alongside the calibre of companies that have been shortlisted in the EI Awards is a huge milestone and we are honoured to have been selected as finalists.

“We are a relatively young business operating in a big playing field and so for our contribution to be recognised in the same arena as some of the industry’s biggest global names is an amazing achievement for the entire Fennex team. We are extremely grateful to the judging panel for their recognition of our ground-breaking work.”

Fennex, founded in 2016, based its submission on the successful collaboration with its partner firm Noble Corporation. Fennex’s cutting-edge digital solution transformed the Offshore Safety Observation Process across a global fleet, significantly enhancing the safety culture and delivering efficiencies that exceeded expectations in efficiency, efficacy and sustainability.

The pioneering BBSSTM system is a cloud-based intuitive platform, the first technology in the offshore industry that is powered by AI technologies to fully automate the workplace safety observation programme, providing live visual dashboards and intelligent analytics tools to aid decision-making and improve safety performance.

To allow for varying levels of digital readiness across diverse company structures, the BBSSTM solution includes both an app for mobile phone and tablet use offshore and a paper card specifically designed for conversion to digital data using machine learning.

The EI Awards winners will be announced in an online ceremony taking place on November 25th, 2021.
