ANNUAL GOLDEN AWARD 2016

The Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain celebrated its Annual Golden Award on 21st April at the Spanish Embassy in London.

The Annual Golden Award is one of the main corporate events of the Spanish Chamber that acknowledges the significant commercial activity of a Spanish company in the United Kingdom during the previous year. On this occasion, the awarded company was CLH, a leading company in Spain for oil product transportation and storage and one of the largest private companies in its sector at an international level. Mr. José Luis López Silanes, President of CLH, received the award on behalf of the company and conveyed his gratitude for this recognition.

Mr. López Silanes shared his feelings towards this award as he felt it a very important recognition to the extraordinary work of the company which was created following the privatisation of the Government Pipeline and Storage System (GPSS).

He announced that the group has launched an important investment programme to enhance asset efficiency in the British market and shared that one of the main objectives of their new investment plan would be to facilitate the oil product transportation in the GPSS network.

In his words, this award represents the significant effort made by each member of the company to carry out this transaction, which has made it possible to increase by 50% the oil pipeline network that CLH manages.
