Barrnon has been shortlisted in this year’s London Business School Real Innovation Awards which are sponsored by Management Today and the Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The prestigious awards recognise creativity and innovation in a wide range of sectors and Barrnon has been nominated for the ‘Alexander Fleming Serendipity’ Award. While Fleming’s discovery of Penicillin was essentially by accident, the award is for ‘a person or organisation that build a thriving business on an idea that originated in the most unexpected or surprising way’.

That certainly fits the bill for Barrnon. We’ve successfully transferred our scallop trawling expertise to create a suite of tools that have already had a huge impact in the nuclear decommissioning industry.

While the two industries could not be further apart, the application of tried and tested techniques have helped Barrnon to develop exceptional tools that are making a huge contribution in some of the most challenging environments known to man.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be nominated in this year’s Real Innovation Awards,” said Managing Director, Andy Barr. “We’re proud of the progress we’re making with our nuclear decommissioning suite and it’s always good to get recognition from such a prestigious organisation.”

The Real Innovation Awards are open for public voting until Friday 30 September. Why not vote for Barrnon today?
