ECITB Chief Executive Andrew Hockey was on hand to give out prizes to the winners. He said: “Congratulations to McDermott International and all the teams that took part. It was a delight to interact with teams from such a diverse group of organisations.
“Anyone that has had the opportunity to observe or participate in this event over the years can appreciate just how much of an undertaking the ACTIVE Cup really is. The level of dedication, skill, tenacity, and collaboration that is displayed in such abundance over such a short space of time is fantastic.
“I would encourage anyone that has not participated before to consider doing so in the future so that they too can benefit from this fantastic experience.
“Project management competence is a fundamental foundation in the effective delivery of projects across our industry.
“As we continue to navigate the energy transition and a global landscape with increasingly complex problems, our project management capability is critical to achieving success. A core element of this is our ability to collaborate effectively and efficiently, which is a key feature of this Cranfield programme.”
As well as the teams from McDermott International, Wood and Saipem, the remaining cohort for January’s ACTIVE Cup came from Worley, Aker Solutions, Lorien Engineering Solutions, part of the NIRAS Group, Bechtel Corporation and the ECITB itself.
The second of the three ACTIVE Cup events in 2024 takes place in Scotland at Carnoustie Golf Hotel, north of Dundee, from Monday 4 to Wednesday 6 March, with applications now closed.
The final event is back at Cranfield School of Management from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 June, with applications to take part in this event open in April.
