BDS ‘50 Year Review of Clywedog’

24 August 2018

ITM Monitoring, a SOCOTEC company, has been invited to share dam monitoring expertise at the BDS ‘50 year review of Clywedog’ presentation

Having played a key role in designing the monitoring system and installing the instrumentation at Clywedog dam in Wales, Sheridan Elliott – ITM’s Data Acquisition & System Integration Manager – has been invited to share his knowledge and key learnings from this project at the upcoming British Dam Society’s ‘50 year review of Clywedog’ presentation.

This event, being held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London on Monday 1st October from 6-8pm, will cover the critical role of the reservoir, the context of the 50 year review, its delivery and outcomes. Given his intimate knowledge of the monitoring work carried out at Clywedog, Sheridan will discuss the recommendations for the monitoring system design at this site, implementation of those recommendations, the challenges encountered in this unique environment as well as the remote monitoring and data acquisition solutions being successfully delivered. 

Sheridan comments: “Thanks to technological innovation, many new methods and techniques are available for monitoring dams and reservoirs, some of which are being used at Clywedog. When I was offered the chance to share my knowledge of this project, speaking alongside other respected professionals from Severn Trent Water, Hafren Dyfyrdwy, Mott MacDonald and Atkins at the prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers, I jumped at the opportunity. I’m incredibly passionate about this project and look forward to sharing my experience with delegates in October.”
