About this event

From flooding to shipping, from climate change to renewable energy, HR Wallingford’s internationally-recognised specialists provide smart solutions to complex water-based challenges.

They have world class physical modelling and ship simulation facilities at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, which they use to design and optimise port development, coastal infrastructure, marine renewable energy and hydraulic structure projects. Recent projects include developing early warning systems for tailings dam failures, design of a new harbour at Aberdeen, research in to the impact of underwater noise and deep sea mining and the San Antonio Port development in Chile. More information on their modelling and simulation facilities can be found at: www.hrwallingford.com/facilities/

The programme for the visit will include:

  • A presentation with an introduction to HR Wallingford and their areas of work
  • A tour of our physical modelling laboratory
  • A visit to the ship simulation centre (subject to availability)

A unique opportunity for those interested in water or coastal projects.

There is a coffee shop and restaurant on site for refreshment.
