Bibby HydroMap is shortlisted for a Mersey Maritime Innovation Award

Posted 3 February 2016

Mersey Maritime has announced that Bibby HydroMap are among the finalists for an Innovation Award at the 2016 MMIAs 

Bibby HydroMap's entry was centered on the launch of their survey ROV d'ROP in 2015, an innovative design that is set to alter the competitive landscape of shallow water remote survey and inspection. Short for 'dynamic remotely operated platform', the flexibility of the d'ROP allows it to effectively meet the needs of many industry sectors, including offshore renewables, oil and gas, subsea power and telecomms cables.

Based on the Wirral, UK, Bibby HydroMap works closely with many local offshore renewables and oil and gas operators, in addition to supporting projects throughout the rest of the UK and Northern Europe.

Bibby HydroMap marketing manager Heather Carrigher comments: 

“We are delighted to be a finalist at this year's MMIAs, particularly within the innovation category as this is at the core of our business. It is wonderful to be recognised for the contribution that d'ROP makes not only to Bibby HydroMap, but also to many of our clients who have experienced a challenging couple of years.”

Organised by sector representative body Mersey Maritime, the MMIAs recognise the excellence and diversity that exists across all sectors of the maritime industry in the North West. The prestigious black tie event will bring together the best of the maritime industry right across the maritime, logistics and energy spectrum in the region.

Mersey Maritime communications manager Annette Parker said:

“Entries for the MMIAs were up almost 60 per cent on 2015, which meant that competition for a place in the final was fierce. Bibby HydroMap submitted a very strong entry in the Innovation category based on d’ROP and we wish them the best of luck for 10 March.”

Winners of the MMIAs will be announced at a prestigious black tie gala dinner to be held at Wallasey Town Hall, Birkenhead, UK on 10 March.
