Over a hundred senior executives and prime industry figures flocked to the Conrad Bangkok on September 20 for the awards night in Thailand. The gala night featured 64 awards this year as nominations jumped to 135.
The awards were expertly judged by John Yeap, Partner, Head of Energy – Asia at Pinsent Masons, and Mark Hutchinson, Managing Director at AWR Lloyd, Mike Thomas, partner at The Lantau Group, and John Goss, Managing Director of Ceejay AOD.
Asian Power publisher Tim Charlton deeply congratulated the awardees, saying "On behalf of the Asian Power team, we are humbled and again grateful for spending your time with us tonight. We are honored to turn the spotlight on 2017's key players who bested others in a drive for efficiency, sustainability, and productivity in the power sector."
YTL Power International Berhad's CEO Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh, who won 2017's CEO of the Year award, said, "We are truly honoured to be here because we represent all the unsung heroes of the power industry: junior engineers, senior civil engineers, mechanical engineers, administrators, finance. Being in the power industry is not easy. To bring light to the nation is not easy. But we do it year after year, bringing light to every nation without any big noise, and these unsung heroes continue to make our lives improve. On behalf of all the people who help run the power industry, God bless them because they are wonderful unsung heroes."
