Innovative Partnership Wins Clean Energy Award for Second Year
TRAIL – Austin Engineering Ltd. and its team of like-minded partners are constantly analyzing dams, including how they react during earthquakes.
The innovative thinkers are pleased to announce that their research, recently presented at the Canadian Dam Association, has received another accolade: the Clean Energy BC ‘Operational Excellence’ award, which will be presented at the Clean Energy BC Generate 2018 Conference in Vancouver this week.
They share the award with research partners FortisBC, Selkirk College, and UBC Okanagan, and the project could not have been possible without support from Mitacs, a non-profit, national research organization.
“We’re really excited to have won this award two years in a row and to have our team recognized,” explains Mary Austin, Director of Business Development at Austin Engineering. “We are thrilled to continue this research in the new year while we press on with Phase 3 of the project.”
The group came together with a common goal: to develop ways of better understanding and supporting an extreme consequence dam, while also creating opportunities for post secondary students.
