Australian Engineering Excellence Awards – Newcastle Division – 2016 Finalist

In 2016, BlueZone Group engineering development work for the Clever Buoy was accepted as a finalist in the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards for Newcastle Division.

Clever Buoy is a breakthrough near shore shark detection and warning system designed to be deployed at beaches that have a potential threat of shark attack. Clever Buoy is a smart ocean buoy that detects large swimming objects, like sharks, and sends real-time valuable information to lifeguards on the beach.

The Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) Newcastle 2016 aim to inspire and encourage engineers to achieve world’s best practice through teamwork, innovation and technical excellence. They also highlight the invaluable contribution engineers make to the economy, community and the environment.

BlueZone Group completed Stage 1 and Stage 2 development of the Clever Buoy for Shark Mitigation Systems Ltd (SMS) an Australian company based in Perth, Western Australia. Shark Mitigation Systems are a technology company focused on mitigating the risk of shark attack.

AIDN-WA Collaboration of the Year Award

At the AIDN-WA Christmas Party BlueZone Group was very pleased to be presented with the Collaboration of the Year Award. This award is designed to recognise outstanding Collaborations between Western Australian Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and other players in the Defence space.

The current and emerging Defence market is focussed heavily on turn-key and low risk options that favour larger-scale solutions. Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) seeking to engage with Defence directly or indirectly, often need to pursue Collaboration, either with each other or with the larger organisations, to create market strength and position worthy of engagement with Defence.

This Award is in recognition of a Collaboration that has benefitted Defence as the end user, and highlights the importance of Collaboration in the current Defence environment.
