Large Exporter of the Year
This award recognised outstanding achievements by a company in any industry with a turnover greater than £10 million. The success was measured by growth in sales and market penetration together with the application of innovative market strategies to extend export potential.
Two key projects demonstrated Clarke Energy’s innovative strategy to extend international trade during this year. Our first hybrid power plant was installed in Nigeria which we believe will be the first of many of these projects that combine technologies for optimised power solutions for our customers. Clarke Energy’s first biogas upgrading plant has opened in France after seeing a move away from using gas in an engine to alternatively looking to inject it back into the gas grid or use as vehicle fuel.
Earlier this year Clarke Energy was chosen by the DIT as an Export Champion for the Northern Powerhouse. In August, Clarke Energy were invited by the DIT to join Prime Minister Theresa May’s trade delegation to Africa, visiting South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. The purpose of the delegation was to focus on encouraging international trade with the continent, where Clarke Energy has operated in since being granted the Jenbacher distributorship for Nigeria in 1998
Clarke Energy would like to congratulate all other businesses who have been shortlisted and wish them the best of luck on the night.
