We're extremely proud of our people and our technology, both of which have been recognised through industry and business awards.
British Engineering Excellence Awards
On the 10th anniversary of the British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) we won the award for New Product (Mechanical) of the Year.
The award was for our ETC 1000 energy efficiency system, with the judges commenting that it is “a product that addresses, here and now, the emissions challenge. Whilst it offers an intermediary step it does so at a price point that is affordable”.
Big Green Awards
At the Southern Sustainability Partnership’s Big Green Awards, we picked up the award for ‘Energy – Product or Solution’ of the year.
The award as given for our ETC 1000 engine efficiency product and the significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions achieved to date. This included reducing CO2 emissions by over 400,000 tonnes.
The Rushlight Awards, presented by Eventure Media, are a celebration and a promotion of new technology, innovation and best practice across the whole environment spectrum for organisations throughout UK and Ireland.
In 2015-16 we were awarded the:
Power Generation and Transmission award: Celebrates the most significant engineering development or innovation that has improved the efficiency of energy conversion and/or transmission from fuel source to consumer in the electricity sector.
Energy Environment award: Awarded to the most significant achievement in reducing the impact on the environment from energy and power generation or end use, either directly or indirectly, for heat, power or fuel for transport purposes
In 2018-19 we also achieved “commended” status for these categories thanks to our ETC 1000 technology.
BusinessGreen Technology Awards
The BusinessGreen Technology Awards celebrate the most exciting green technology businesses and cutting-edge technology in the UK. Bowman was awarded “Highly Commended” status at the 2018 awards in the highly competitive “Transport Technology of the Year” category for our marine engine efficiency project.
The project with Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG, Lloyd’s Register and UCL, has the potential to achieve fuel savings of up to 7.8% and a reduction in emissions, making it well placed to meet the needs of the marine sector.

Sustrans Employee Engagement Award
Sustrans works with communities, policy-makers and partner organisations so that people can choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys and enjoy better, safer spaces where they live. The SME Travel Awards celebrates the achievements of small businesses that have made changes to their organisational travel behaviour, to make improvements and bring about cost savings, health benefits and a reduction in environmental impact.
We were named winner of the 2015 Best Employee Engagement Award, for which Sustrans commented “This company is really taking its environmental impact seriously. It’s developed a Travel Action Plan with Sustrans, and endorsed it with enthusiasm.”
The Sunday Times Tech Track 100
The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private tech companies with the fastest-growing sales over the latest three years. In 2013 we ranked 21st on the league table, with average annual sales growth of 128% and we were recognised as the 4th highest manufacturing company on the list.
In 2012 we placed 18th with average annual sales growth of 117% and we were the fastest growing company south of London.
Women in Business Rising Star
Women in Business recognises women who have excelled in their profession and made a real impact on businesses. The key principle of the awards is to discover outstanding women who, through leadership and innovative ideas, stand out as an exceptional individual in their role.
The ‘Rising Star’ awards category is specifically for women aged 30 or under, and who are ‘Women to Watch’. The category looked for women who have quickly risen through the ranks and made their mark in industry, with the qualities to make a strong future leader. In 2015, Maria Llorens, our Principal Mechanical Engineer, won this award.
Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Index
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is one of the UK’s foremost technology award programmes. It is a ranking of the country’s 50 fastest growing technology companies, based on revenue growth over the last five years.
In 2013 we were pleased to be placed 24th in the ranking, also placing 2nd position in the Green Tech Sector, with a growth rate of 1,022%.
Made in Britain Award Winner
We won the Made in Britain category at the prestigious CBI-backed 2012 Growing Business Awards.
“It’s in a sweet spot with unlimited potential,” said the panel of judges making the award. “Bowman represents extraordinary innovation and is a company that needs the greatest possible encouragement at this stage in its development.”
Bond Pearce Technology & Innovation Award Winner
At the Hampshire Business Awards 2011, we won the Bond Pearce Technology & Innovation Award for our work in developing the world’s first cost-effective ETC solution.
The judges said “Bowman Power. A worthy winner of an award focused on technology and innovation. Its technology is proven in terms of the efficiency gains it can produce – several units are operating in customers’ facilities and have had no significant operating issues – and the payback period for most applications is so short that conversion would seem like an easy decision for any large-scale operators of diesel engines. The company is well placed to make the most of this exciting and worthwhile technology on a global scale.”
Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation of the Year
Based on its research on the powertrain market, Frost & Sullivan presented us with the 2010 European New Product Innovation Award for the development of electrical turbo generators that convert exhaust gases into useful energy.
The Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
