Geomarine Jersey were very pleased to have won the Project of the Year Award up to £1m for the Desalination Valve Replacement project with Jersey Water at the Jersey Construction Awards 2016.
The projects title belies that the valve was submerged in tidal conditions at the bottom of a 20m deep shaft. It required the use of commercial divers and rope access specialists, all direct employees, and, due to engineering complexities, required project management by an MEng Civil Engineer. That such a team was available locally was a badge of pride for Geomarine, and a very pleasant surprise to Jersey Water, who were astounded by the ability, skill set and professional pragmatism we provide. We were delighted that this was also recognised by the judges.
