Energy technology provider Fennex is continuing to grow in the wake of recent contract wins, prompting new personnel and its entrance into new markets.

The Aberdeen-based company, which designs and implements digital and automation solutions for critical processes, has seen year-on-year growth since it was founded in 2016.

Project wins over the last six months include an integration solution to support the rig start up for a major new offshore project off the coast of Mexico – the first for the firm in the region.

Fennex also recently developed an extreme weather software solution for a major drilling contractor in the Gulf of Mexico, with its policy assurance and safety solutions now deployed across 65 global assets.

Following this increase in demand, the company has increased its specialist software team by 40% over the last two years, bringing its headcount to 12.

In a bid to support the next generation of AI and tech specialists, it has also created a graduate placement programme, offering six students the opportunity to gain vital sector experience.

Most recently, the company was recognised at the SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards, securing the Digital Innovation accolade for its work with drilling group Noble Corporation

The company delivered its behaviour based safety solution (BBSS), which combines safety observations from digital and physical entry points into an online environment. This saved Noble some 15,000 work-hours by automating a traditional safety card system and increased reporting and workforce engagement by 30%.

Founder and managing director Adrian Brown commented: “Having spent time leading global energy projects, I could see the value of developing digital solutions to directly address challenges the sector faces, automating often laborious processes to ultimately make projects run more smoothly and give far greater visibility.

“We’re proud to have grown a loyal customer base that is seeing the benefit of tech adoption, which has been critical for their businesses during the challenges of the last two years. Our approach to problem solving allowed clients to engage their global workforces and have more visibility over their operations as the sector adapted to new ways of working.”

The company’s director of strategy, Nassima Brown, added: “Winning the Digital Innovation award is a very proud moment for our team. It brightens the future outlook not just for our business, but for the tech companies that are working so hard to drive a digital shift in the energy sector. It recognises the difference that can be made when a solution not only makes operations more efficient but also ultimately improves safety.”
