A Banchory man has shown he is bursting with potential after being recognised as a ‘Rising Star’ at an energy industry awards ceremony.

Scott Murray,24, works as a focal point at industrial services

provider Bilfinger Salamis UK at the Bridge of Don.

His big win came at the 20th Offshore Contractor’s Association Challenge Awards, held at the Marcliffe Hotel, Aberdeen.

Judges praised Scott for his commitment to the industry by continuously extending his knowledge through further education, whether in a theoretical sense, or through a practical approach. Having gained his Association of Project Manager’s (APM) qualification, Scott has recently commenced an MSC in project management.

Scott joined Bilfinger Salamis UK in 2011, having previously worked in an accountancy role. Realising his strengths were in project management, he started as a trainee project engineer, and his potential was noted by his supervisors soon after.

He took on the role of site supervisor at a client’s terminal at St Fergus, a big responsibility for a 21-year old.

A year ago, Scott was promoted to the post of project focal point, heading up a fabric maintenance contract with a major client.

Graham Hayward, managing director at Bilfinger Salamis UK said: “This is a great accolade for both Scott and the company.

‘‘Recognition from a key customer of a job well done is something we strive for.

‘‘It reflects on all thehard work put in both by individuals and teams.”
