Experts to devote day to water engineering

Leading industry experts will debate several aspects of working with water, including renewable energy, legislation and environmental implications, at an upcoming conference.

Engineering practices and technologies surrounding work in and around ports, harbours, coastal defences and estuaries are rapidly evolving to cope with the progression of many associated areas such as offshore renewables and flood risk management policies.

Working in the Wet 2010 will delve into theses issues, examining both how things have been done successfully in the past, as well as what we need to plan and prepare for in future to keep up with the rapidly changing pace of water engineering.

Representatives from a variety of commercial and public organisations including Black & Veatch, Tidal Energy and the Environment Agency, will be leading discussions around the historical legacy of coastal engineering, tidal and wind power, the Water Framework Directive and Marine Bill, and environmental schemes including legislation and construction case studies.

ICE South East England director John Laverty said: “This is a prime opportunity to learn how the industry is changing, with valuable insight from some of the leading experts working in the field.”

The 2010 seminar will be held on Tuesday 27 April at the INTECH Science Centre & Planetarium in Winchester.
