The awards recognize subcontractors and suppliers who supported Bechtel Power’s communications, renewable, transmission, nuclear, and thermal projects during 2013.
“Subcontractors and suppliers play a critical role in our ability to deliver projects to our customers with the highest levels of safety, quality, and ethics,” said Toby Seay, president of Bechtel’s power global busi-ness unit. “The expertise and innovation they bring are essential to a project’s success.”
Hydratight President, Jan de Koning, said: It was an honour to accept the award, which is a reflection of all of our employees’ hard work and commitment to safety while working to support Bechtel on critical projects. This is the third year in a row that we have received this award and it is a testament to our long standing partnership with Bechtel.
Companies were evaluated on multiple factors. They include: overall performance; the ability to deliver quality equipment on time; the ability to work collaboratively to meet milestones; and meeting or ex-ceeding project expectations in aspects of safety, construction performance, technical expertise, and environmental compliance. Nominations were submitted by Bechtel project procurement and contracts managers, and final recommendations were approved by senior-most leadership within Bechtel’s power business.
Hydratight's innovative products and services (hydratight.com) have ensured the integrity of all types of flanges and mechanical connectors. Hydratight (hydratight.com) can trace its roots back to 1901 when the Sweeney business was founded in the United States. The company’s first torque tools appeared on the scene in 1949. But the heart of today’s business began to beat in the 1970s with the creation of the GKN Pilgrim, Hydratight (later to become Hydratight Sweeney) and Hedley Purvis companies.
