Representatives from North East energy companies gathered together for NOF Energy’s annual dinner to forge new ties and recognise those who have made significant commitments to the sector.
The event at Hardwick Hall, County Durham, provided over 400 guests with a chance to network and celebrate the industry’s achievements across 2014.
Robert Bowles, chairman of the Barrier Group and one of the organisation’s longest serving members, was honoured with a special award to recognise his service to both NOF Energy and to the UK energy sector supply chain.
Mr Bowles said: “I was overwhelmed to receive this honour. I am very proud to have been recognised by my peers and an organisation that means so much to me and my business.
“NOF Energy has been integral to the success of Barrier Group. The contacts it has helped us establish and the support it has provided have been invaluable.”
