We were delighted to pick up the award and be recognised in front of the construction industry on 14 July at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
After a face-to-face review and analysis by a panel of 80 expert judges from within the construction industry, our HPU technology was commended for the projects in service that are already having a real impact on the industry and recognised for its potential to successfully replace diesel generators on construction sites.
The judges commented: “A result of 10 years of R&D to develop the solution which now replaces the diesel generators on sites. The HPU (hydrogen power unit) produces 250 KVA of clean energy saving 1.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions in comparison to its diesel counterparts. A reliable form of energy with no moving parts increasing productivity. A proposal that brought to life the future of energy production and provided the ‘wow’ factor to meeting a zero carbon emissions target.”
Our entry demonstrated that construction sites can transition seamlessly to using HPUs for clean power, cutting all harmful emissions associated with diesel generators and drastically reducing noise pollution.
Our HPUs provide reliable, clean energy and an opportunity for the construction industry to meet environmental targets, operate successfully in zero emission zones and support the global race for net zero.
On collecting the award, GeoPura Business Development Manager Matt Barney commented: “We are very happy to have our HPU technology recognised by the judges. We truly believe in the potential that green hydrogen has to help decarbonise the industry and the additional benefits that the HPU offers in terms of NOx and noise reduction is very important in construction.
“I particularly want to thank our many customers who, like HS2, are already using this technology on construction sites around the UK and proving it’s value. As we scale up production of these units in the coming months, with our partners Siemens Energy, we intend to channel more units into the industry and maximise the sustainability impact.”
The Construction News Awards, celebrating its 26th year in 2022, is a key event in the construction industry calendar and brought together more than 1,200 of the UK’s leading clients and contractors for an evening of celebration, recognition and networking.
