FT Technologies has won two 2016 Offshore Excellence Awards for Best Turbine Control Wind Sensor Manufacturer – UK, and Most Innovative Air Sensor Technology- Acu-Res®.
Now in its third year, the Offshore Excellence Awards celebrate the integrity of firms worldwide, covering the full spectrum of offshore business and industry across the seas. These awards highlight both the professionalism of companies working across the global business spectrum, such as legal and financial firms, alongside the grit and skill of the industrial organisations that dominate the seas, such as maritime and oil and gas companies.
Acquisition International prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.
Accepting the award for FT Technologies, Fred Squire, Director of Sales & Marketing
, commented: “We are extremely proud to win these two awards and to be recognised by industry professionals from around the world. Without doubt, we are the market leader in the offshore wind energy sector as the majority of all offshore turbines in the world are fitted with an FT sensor.
“This has been an exciting year for us as we have launched our new FT7 Series of wind sensors with improved accuracy of wind speed and direction measurement and wind speed measurement up to 75m/s.
“I am particularly delighted that our innovative Acu-Res® technology
has also been recognised. Unique to FT Technologies wind sensors, Acu-Res® was invented by our Executive Chairman, Dr Savvas Kapartis. Acu-Res® uses an acoustic (ultrasonic) wave which is resonated inside a small cavity. A strong resonating sound wave in a small space gives a signal to noise ratio more than 40db stronger than other ultrasonic technologies.
Using Acu-Res® technology results in a small, easily heated sensor which operates reliably, even under extreme weather conditions.”
