Industrial Flooding: Protecting Critical Infrastructure

18Mar2020

London

The Industrial Flooding seminar will outline the impact of the increase in flooding on the engineering community and identify best practice to protect your infrastructure effectively both now and into the future.

Flooding events across the UK due to climate change have underscored the importance of ensuring critical infrastructure is protected. 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts that by 2100 sea levels could rise by two meters, while a recent report compiled by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers urges engineers to consider preparing for a rise of three meters*. 

Current infrastructure, often not equipped to withstand predicted increase in sea levels and storms, is at risk. It is therefore vital that the engineering community invest in solutions in preparation for changes in climatic conditions.

This unique event brings together cross-sector lessons learned from flooding incidents from sectors including nuclear, biomass and water. Learn how best to retrofit your assets and implement future infrastructure design specifications for greater protection.

Hazards Forum members can book at the Supporting Organisation rate for IMechE events – simply book online or contact the IMechE directly and mention your membership.
