Three Team Van Oord partners, Van Oord, Mackley and Royal HaskoningDHV, are gearing up for Flood and Coast 2017, a leading industry event which sets out to advance the debate about flood and coastal erosion risk, resilience and response.

Van Oord is the gold sponsor of the event, now in it’s second year, which takes place at the Telford International Centre next week (28-30 March), while Mackley is a bronze sponsor.

Royal HaskoningDHV features heavily on the conference agenda, including a presentation from Tim Ellingham, who represents Team Van Oord in the Anglia region.

Tim’s presentation, ‘Packaging, integrated teams and co-location – does it really help?’, forms part of the ‘Powerful projects in partnership’ session on day one of the event.

Other Royal HaskoningDHV speakers include:

  • Day one: Nanco Dolman, Keming Hu and Greg Guthrie, Nick Cooper
  • Day two: Fola Ogunyoye, Nick Cooper, Gregor Guthrie, Jaap Flikweert

Both Van Oord and Mackley will also participate in the exhibition: Van Oord on stands A36 and A42 and Mackley on stand A29 – alongside other exhibitors including the Environment Agency (A35).

Led once again by the Environment Agency, Flood and Coast 2017 will embrace the concept of ‘a changing climate’, drawing on expertise and experience from different geographical regions from across the globe.

The three-day programme of workshops, presentations, debate and panel sessions covers topics selected by the government and a panel of industry experts.

The conference is accompanied by a trade show and exhibition which will provide stakeholders with unrivalled networking opportunities to engage with contractors, consultants and project owners.

The conference dinner will once again feature the Environment Agency Project Excellence Awards Ceremony, with categories ranging from programme and project delivery to innovation, efficiency and sustainable resource management.

In 2016, TVO picked up the Project Excellence Innovation Award for the £30m Broomhill Sands Coastal Defence Scheme which was delivered by TVO on behalf of the Environment Agency.

More than 1,500 professionals are expected to attend the event across the three days.
