This year's Finnish Engineering Award went to a direct quenching technology developed at Ruukki that enables the energy-efficient manufacture of special and high-strength steels. Worth €25,000, the award is made each year by the labour organisation Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland - TEK and Tekniska Föreningen i Finland - TFiF. The award was made to the persons who are also behind the direct quenching patent: father and son Reijo and Tommi Liimatainen, and Mikko Hemmilä. The award is a great recognition both to the inventors and to the entire work community.
