OREANDA-NEWS. A trio of SSE employees are celebrating success at this year’s Utility Week Star Awards.

Caroline Carslaw is likely to be a name to look out for in the future in the energy sector after picking up Utility Week’s Rising Star award. Mo Bates and Shona Horn from Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution’s Stakeholder Engagement Team have been recognised for their tremendous work with communities in the north of Scotland.

Caroline, a mechanical engineering graduate from Strathclyde University joined SSE’s Graduate Development Programme last year in pursuit of her goal of becoming a Chartered Engineer.

Since joining, Caroline has shown her ability to go the extra mile by creating and developing a Fatigue Life Consumption Model; which will ultimately be used by every power station operated by SSE.

This involved using the British Engineering Standard BS EN 12952-3 to understand and code the complex fatigue life calculations for ‘headers’ and ‘drums’ and optimizing the nature of the results in the most efficient manner.

On top of that Caroline is a STEM ambassador – helping ensure the next generation see all the industry has to offer.

Mo and Shona developed and delivered a major programme of resilience workshops, supporting the creation of 44 community resilience plans to date, spread across the north of Scotland from Brodick in the Isle of Arran to Bettyhill.
