Simon Mortensen, DHI Group Executive of Ports & Navigation and Managing Director of Seaport OPX Powered by DHI, has been awarded one of Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers 2018 under the ‘Innovation’ category by Engineers Australia, the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in the country.

Congratulations Simon, for another well-deserved win!

'With an approximate quarter million talented and progressive engineers in Australia, I never thought I would ever win an EA most innovative engineer award. To end up winning it twice and for two different technologies is a surreal experience. Dynamic traffic management of depth-constrained ships in ports has been an established discipline for more than 20 years. To receive this award for a product that claims to do so more accurately, safer and more efficiently, has been an honour beyond measure. 

'It is essential to mention that NCOS ONLINE would never have been the worldwide success it has become if it was not for the incredibly talented DHI and FORCE Technology team that has lifted NCOS from a prototype to a streamlined cloud-based commercial solution servicing ports around the world. Thank you for your commitment, friendship and partnership. You are the true unsung heroes of this achievement.'
