Aberdeen energy specialists accelerate growth following £250k contract wins 

AN ABERDEEN business specialising in energy technology has been able to expand after winning multiple contracts worth over £250,000. 

Fennex, based in the Granite City, is continuing its campaign for growth with an increase of personnel and entry to new markets. 

Founded in 2016, the company seeks to accelerate digital transformation in the energy sector by designing and implementing solutions to transform critical industry processes. 

Some of the company’s big contract wins have come from Mexico.

Fennex directors Nassima Brown and Adrian Brown accept the Digital Innovation prize from host Rachel Riley at the SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards last week.

The firm will be providing an integration solution to support the start-up of a major offshore rig just off the country’s coast. 

Developing a bespoke extreme weather software solution for a large drilling contractor in the Gulf of Mexico is another of Fennex’s recent successes. 

With the importance of energy placed under greater scrutiny as the cost-of-living crisis continues, the business is expanding to accommodate the rise in demand for its services.

The specialist software team now has a headcount of 12, while a programme has a begun to offer six students graduate placements and sector experience. 

Adrian Brown, founder and managing director of Fennex, said: “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.”

Industry recognition has also come the way of the energy technology specialists, who were presented with the Digital Innovation accolade at the SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards last week. 

The award followed work with Noble Corportation Plc, who received software automating a traditional safety card system, resulting in 15,000 staff hours saved and a 30% increased in reported workforce engagement. 

Nassima Brown, director of strategy at Fennex, 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.”
