It was fantastic to be recognised at the inaugural Hydrogen Awards last week which took place on 23rd February, hosted by the University of Warwick at The Slate on their Coventry campus. Our Chief Commercial Officer, Rebecca McLean and Marketing Director, Tiffany Scott were in attendance to represent GeoPura having entered two award categories for our industry-leading technology and on-site deployments.
A total of 16 awards were presented, covering categories including the use of hydrogen across industry sectors, in addition to looking for excellence in the production, storage, distribution, and marketing of hydrogen, as well as training and development, installation, service and maintenance specialists, and innovation or developments in legal, financial, and professional services for the sector.

The judging panel noted success from the Hydrogen Power Units on building sites and film and TV sets in our submitted case studies for off-grid power supply.
“It’s great to be recognised for the work we are doing today, providing zero emission energy to some of the hardest to abate sectors,” said, Rebecca McLean, Chief Commercial Officer at GeoPura. “To win the gold outstanding achievement award was a fantastic surprise – all the teams involved will be over the moon.”
