AN East Anglian awards celebrating pioneering ideas which can benefit the energy industry is being fired up.

The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) has launched its fifth annual contest showcasing the industry's groundbreaking technology.

Last year's winners were Lowestoft-based Pipeshield International, which scooped the award for a project to dispose of offshore drill cuttings, which are a major issue across the global industry.

“If companies have innovative ideas or technology, now is the time to shout about it,” said EEEGR general manager Johnathan Reynolds.
