FIDDLERS Ferry power station has been awarded a national manufacturing award for its work in partnership with Peter J Douglas Engineering Ltd.

The EEF innovative people management award followed the Widnes Road power station beating competition to pick up the north west regional award last year.

The awards recognise excellence in enterprise, innovation, environmental performance and skills development among UK manufacturers.

David Ost, north west region director for EEF, said: “This company is leading the way by engaging all of its staff in the way the business operates, which in turn reduces its operational costs while maintaining high levels of service and quality.”
