CoE presents the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards 2009

The Winners of the eighth edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards (MEEA) were announced on Friday December 4th at a reception hosted by the Chamber of Engineers. The awards were presented by H.E. Robbert Gabrielse, ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, John Scerri, deputy chairman of Malta Enterprise and Inġ. Helga Pizzuto, President of the Chamber of Engineers. The MEEAs provide national recognition to individuals and organisations who have achieved outstanding engineering accomplishments.

This year’s award for Innovation was awarded to the IUBS programme team consisting of the Enemalta Corporation, the Water Services Corporation and IBM. The IUBS project’s brief and investment demanded exceptional inter-sectoral competencies, efficiency and technical expertise.

A second award for Innovation was awarded to Playmobil Ltd. (Malta) for embracing a philosophy of Innovation. This is the third time that Playmobil participated in the MEEAs  in the past 4 years. Each year the Playmobil submission has featured an innovation to their current manufacturing process, an approach that has ensured that the Malta facility remains competitive in the face of stiff competition overseas.

The Award for Leadership was given to the Panta Lesco Ltd. Panta Lesco is a building services contracting company which has been in business for fifty years and during which it has established itself as a leader in large and complex building services projects. Over the years, Panta diversified and expanded its line of products and services within the industry. In its years of operations it has maintained a substantial core of technical and engineering resources.

The award for Lifetime Achievement was awarded to the late Bartholomew Attard, founder of the Panta Lesco Group. Throughout his carreer Mr Attard contributed significantly, not only to the Maltese economy and society in general by introducing state of the art products and technology to the island, but also through the significant employment of members of the engineering community.

In her closing address Ing Helga Pizzuto President of the Chamber of Engineers, thanked all participants for their efforts and for their participation in the Awards. The MALTA ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE AWARDS has now established itself as a very important yearly event benchmarking the recognition of outstanding engineering efforts by local engineers or engineering companies and the CoE will be inviting fresh nominations during Autumn 2010.
