CLS Offshore apprentices beat off top competition

APPRENTICES from CLS Offshore in Great Yarmouth took second place in a contest featuring some of the top young engineering talents from leading UK companies.

Teams of four had to design and build a mini drag-racer from a range of waste household plastics, batteries and small motors and then race their powered vehicles over two metres. The CLS energy sector service company team of Danny King, Olly Penfold, James Partridge and Harley Coleman took second place in the Institute of Mechanical Engineers Challenge at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford.

The team competed against apprentices from Ford, Lotus Engineering, Nissan and Britvic among others.
