Nominations for the 2020 Hydrographic Excellence Awards are open until 31 January 2021. With the upheaval that Covid-19 has had on the industry, and knowing surveyors, I am sure there are numerous examples of innovation that have kept the industry moving. Some I imagine will change the way the industry operates and will be picked up by others as innovative and effective ways of working going forward. If you know of such an example pop in a nomination, or if you are unsure feel free to contact Dave Field as Chair of the HE Committee to discuss the idea.
The HE Awards not just for innovation, rather it aims to recognise hydrographic project and field work that embraces hydrographic surveying activities that reflect hydrographic excellence and which deliver hydrographic best practice, either ashore or afloat.
