The Technip Energies Winning Team Giving Its ACTIVE Cup Presentation Below It Worked On Over The Three Days Above Aspect Ratio 740 740

Technip Energies is celebrating after one of its teams was victorious at the 49th ACTIVE Cup event at Cranfield University near Milton Keynes.

The company, a leading engineering and technology company for the energy transition, entered two teams into the latest running of the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board’s (ECITB) project management competition, which is now in its 30th year.

Technip Energies’ team of Aishwarya Chandru, Rafik Mechail, Adam Khan, Danny Weston-Brown and Priyanka Singh Patel saw off six other cohorts from companies in the engineering construction industry to claim victory in the third and final ACTIVE Cup of 2024.

After McDermott International came out on top in January at Cranfield and Worley won the 48th ACTIVE Cup at Carnoustie Golf Hotel in Scotland in March, it was the turn of Technip Energies to impress in the three-day event from 21-23 June.

Worley (Gold Award) and Wood (Silver Winner) were the runners up, Altrad picked up the Most Improved award, while the remaining cohorts came from Fluor and Subsea7.

Organised by the ECITB, the event is run in collaboration with, and hosted by, Cranfield School of Management and takes place three times a year.

It involves teams of up to five managing a project from concept through to completion with the aim of making the most profit against their initial cost.

ECITB CEO Andrew Hockey Giving A Speech At The End Of The ACTIVE Cup Event

“Congratulations to Technip Energies and all the teams that took part in what is a high-pressure project management competition.

“The ACTIVE Cup is one of the flagship components of our project management programme to develop and nurture behavioural skills, such as collaboration, in the next generation of project managers.

“I’m always amazed at the effort and skill that the teams put in and it just drives home the importance of quality project management to our in-scope industries.

“By putting on practical events like this, the ECITB is helping ensure the industry and our in-scope employers have the project management skills needed to run projects.

“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, using the lessons learnt to feed into their day-to-day project delivery.”
