Somerset Passenger Solutions wins gold and silver at the 2021 HPC Excellence Awards

Somerset Passenger Solutions was proud to be named as winners of the Gold award for Health and Safety Performance and Silver award for Best Onsite /Regional Supplier at the HPC Excellence Awards held at Somerset County Cricket Ground.

The annual Hinkley Point C Excellence Awards celebrates work on the prestigious national infrastructure project across three themes of Project Delivery, Supply Chain and People. Finalists, their nominators and senior leaders gathered together at the glittering event and got an insight into individuals, teams and supplier’s achievements. EDF in the UK’s CEO Simone Rossi praised the winners and reinforced their role in helping Britain achieve Net Zero.

Following two rounds of judging, SPS was chosen as the Gold winner for Health and Safety Performance based on consistently excellent performance over the last 12 months. This is another fantastic achievement for SPS who also scooped the Silver award in the Best Onsite /Regional Supplier category for their continued dedication and outstanding customer service.

The HPC Excellence Awards are open to all businesses working on, or for the HPC Project. 

SPS provides a bespoke transport solution for the HPC Project, carrying almost all people who go to the construction site either for work or to visit. SPS transport thousands of clients to and from the construction site every day, working 24/7 to ensure that construction remains on schedule.

Simon Cursio, Managing Director said: “We beat tough competition from many great companies and I am supremely proud of the team for their dedication, leadership and expertise in the health and safety space.

“Landing the very prestigious accolade at the HPC Excellence Awards is just reward for their efforts. This recognition rounds off a challenging but very positive year for SPS as the business continues to grow and we hope to exceed the expectations of our client and passengers once again in 2022.”
