About the Asset Performance Awards
Since 1998, BEMAS has organised the annual election of Maintenance Manager of the Year. Over the years, the title of Maintenance Manager of the Year has become one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. For the manager concerned, but certainly also for his team and company, it is a recognition of the daily commitment to work on a continuous improvement of the maintenance and the operating results. In 2017, two ladies, who formed a duo as an asset and a maintenance manager, were awarded 20th prize. You can find all the past winners in the table below. In 2018, Marc De Kerf, Global Expert Maintenance & Asset Management Petrochemicals, won the European Maintenance Manager Award at BASF as a nominee of BEMAS.
In 2019, BEMAS decided to transform the Maintenance Manager of the Year award into the Asset Performance Awards which are a part of the Asset Performance 4.0 Conference. We do not present one, but three awards. With this transformation, we are responding to a number of important trends in the field of maintenance. First and foremost, the maintenance policy is increasingly being integrated into a long-term asset management strategy. Maintenance must ensure that the assets deliver the desired performance. Hence the overarching title: Asset Performance Awards. The performance of the installations or infrastructure is always the result of turning a strong vision into reality thanks to the application of good practices.
The award for Best Improvement in Maintenance & Asset Management rewards organisations that have taken a major step forward in the applied maintenance and asset management practices. However, achieving excellent results in the field of Asset Performance will not be possible without an excellent technical team. That is why we also honour a Technical Team of the Year. Finally, in times of industry 4.0, with the Asset Performance 4.0 Award we also want to put a digital transformation in the spotlight, focusing on maintenance, reliability and availability of the assets.
In short, the Asset Performance Awards are an award and recognition for technical teams that provide great added value for their company thanks to their achievements and approach in the field of maintenance and management of technical assets.
