HR Wallingford has been recognised in two categories of the IHS Dredging and Port Construction (DPC) Innovation Awards 2017 which were held in London on the 29 November 2017. The engineering and environmental hydraulics consultancy was shortlisted for both the Innovative Support Services Award for its cutting-edge survey vessel, the ARC-Boat, and the New Markets Award for âField measurements and modelling of the dynamics of sediment plumes from Deep Sea Mining operationsâ. Mark Lee, Dredging Group manager, said: âWe are delighted to be recognised for our innovative work through the New Markets Award. The results of the bespoke field experiments, modelling and laboratory tests have advanced the understanding of the behaviour of sediment plumes in the deep ocean and will ultimately improve our ability to predict, monitor and hence manage, the impacts which may arise from future deep sea mining operations.â
