Survitec sponsors Royal Navy Neptune Award

Safety solutions provider Survitec has again sponsored the prestigious Neptune Award presented to the highest level of proficiency achieved over the course of a 54-week Royal Navy Survival Equipment Course.

Survitec was on hand back in December 2017 to present the Neptune Award and did so once again, this time handing the award to the Royal Navy’s very own Naval Airman Scott Collins at RNAS Yeovilton at the end of April.

Head of Programme Management for Survitec, Chris Hurley, presented the award having once been a Lieutenant Commander during a 16-year stint with the Royal Navy. The previous recipient of the Neptune Award was NA(SE) Davies.

David Griffiths, Vice President Defence Sales at Survitec Group, said: “We have a saying at Survitec that we’re proudly obsessive about safety and survival, which is precisely why we’re honoured to recognise military personnel who display the same characteristics. The Neptune Award embodies discipline, determination and a dedication to treat vital equipment with the respect it deserves.

“As a safety and survival solutions provider, we understand exactly what it takes to make high specification kit that can perform in the most extreme circumstances and save the lives of the personnel wearing and using it. But that’s only half the battle – unless equipment is efficiently maintained and effectively deployed it won’t perform the job it needs to, which is why it is vital that sufficient training is undertaken and maintenance is regularly performed.

“We’d like to personally congratulate Naval Airman Scott Collins and we look forward to continuing our involvement with this worthy award.”
