During the festive opening of the new safety center at the BP Refinery Rotterdam, Van der Ende’s team was surprised with the presentation of the ‘Believe in Zero’ safety award. Roland Edelenbosch (manager HSSE) handed the award and the accompanying letter with congratulations from Tufan Erginbilgic (CEO Downstream) to Fred van Meeteren and Erik Suijkerbuijk . Van der Ende was nominated for this international award by the BPRR organization. The motivation for the nomination includes reading:
