The Peninsula

International Society of Automation (ISA Qatar Section) recently conducted its Annual Honours & Awards Gala for the automation professionals of Qatar. ISA, being the largest worldwide professional organisation for Instrumentation and Control Engineering professionals, constituted several automation excellence awards in academics as well in industry in Qatar.

Automation Excellence in Industry Award 2016 has been awarded to Dolphin Energy group of engineers Velappan Minakshisundaram, Akhilesh Bhati, Rizal Permana, Ayman Zaki, Nazeer Syed, Stephen O’ Neil, Abdulhadi Al Mari, Srinivasa Rao Konada, Suresh Ramasamy, Shahul Rahmathulla for their innovative excellence in implementation of project relating to control system improvement of steam turbine.

ISA Member of the year Award 2016 is awarded to Mohamed Shakir of Qatar Airways in recognition of his achievements and contribution to the automation field. Though two nominations were received for Student Excellence in Automation award 2016 , but could not find any one suitable for that award. ISA Qatar President Nilangshu Dey appealed all industry professionals and academicians for their more participation from next year as it internationally recognises individuals and groups against their contribution .
