Somerset Passenger Solutions scoops Gold at the HPC Excellence Awards

Somerset Passenger Solutions was proud to be named as the winner of the Gold award in the Outstanding Supplier Partnership category at the HPC Excellence Awards held on 16th February 2023.

The annual Hinkley Point C Excellence Awards celebrates work on the project across two themes of Project Delivery and People & Behaviours. Finalists, their nominators and senior leaders gathered at the event at the Winter Gardens in Weston Super Mare last week and got an insight into individuals, teams and supplier’s achievements. EDF in the UK’s CEO, Simone Rossi, praised the winners and reinforced our role in helping Britain achieve Net Zero.

Following two rounds of judging, SPS was chosen as the Gold winner of the Outstanding Supplier Partnership Award based on consistently excellent performance over the last 12 months. It is the third time in 4 years that SPS have won this prestigious award and is testament to the hard work and dedication of each one of the team at SPS.

The success went even further with Josh Virgin (Lead Supervisor) being awarded Gold in the Going Above & Beyond category. Josh is a star and has a bright future ahead of him.

The HPC Excellence Awards are open to all businesses working on, or for the HPC Project. 

SPS provides a bespoke transport solution for the HPC Project, carrying almost all people who go to the construction site either for work or to visit. SPS transport thousands of clients to and from the construction site every day, working 24/7 to ensure that construction remains on schedule.

Simon Cursio, Managing Director said: “We beat tough competition from many great companies and I am supremely proud of the team. Landing the very prestigious accolade at the HPC Excellence Awards is just reward for their efforts. This recognition rounds off a challenging but very positive year for SPS as the business continues to grow and we hope to exceed the expectations of our client and passengers once again in 2023”.
