WAE is delighted to announce that it has received the Consultancy of the Year award at the 2016 British Engineering Excellence Awards.
Sponsored by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Consultancy of the Year is awarded to an organisation demonstrating innovative and timely solutions to engineering problems posed to them by their customers.
Combining cutting edge technology and the industry’s best engineers, WAE has successfully delivered on a number of high profile projects over the past 12 months, including supplying the batteries to the Formula E racing series, creating the Jaguar C-X75 hypercar for the Bond film SPECTRE, and the development of the fully electric Aston Martin RapidE and Nissan BladeGlider concept cars. What’s more, WAE has seen its Formula One inspired technologies and know-how introduced into a growing range of sectors such as automotive, motorsport, energy, defence, and healthcare.
WAE’s Technical Director, Paul McNamara, was at the Honourable Artillery Club in London on 6th October to collect the award.
Commenting on the award, Managing Director of WAE Craig Wilson said; “The British Engineering Excellence Awards reward the best of the best in UK engineering so we’re honoured to have been named Consultancy of the Year. As a company, we endeavour to work collaboratively with our customers and go above and beyond to get the best results for them. This award is great validation of our growing reputation as a leading engineering problem solver, and the value that Formula One inspired technologies and practices can have beyond the race track.”
Luke Webster, Publishing Director, MA Business, organisers of the British Engineering Excellence Awards, added; “Once again, the British Engineering Excellence Awards attracted a host of impressive entries from brilliant British innovators. The Consultancy of the Year category is always hotly contested however, the Judges felt that WAE demonstrated an impressive performance to take on the challenge of designing and making batteries for Formula E, which worked reliably. It was hard to ignore the engineering excellence involved. Many congratulations to the whole team.”
