The Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) Tasmania is the state’s premier event for the Engineering profession. The awards inspire and encourage engineers to achieve world’s best practice through teamwork, innovation and technical excellence.

Entries are judged on criteria including the significance of the work as a benchmark of Australian engineering, and the extent to which the work represents world best practice. At the 2016 Awards, in the Category of Small Business Ventures and Projects, LPI was awarded a High Commendation for the Development of a New Corona-Minimising Air Terminal for Lightning Protection (Guardian Plus). This novel product development required a multi-disciplinary engineering approach, including expertise in electrical, high-voltage, mechanical, manufacturing and software engineering.

Representing LPI at the awards ceremony was Mr. Jey. Radha-Krishnan, Dr. Sabrina Sequeira, Mr. Paul Hollingsworth, and Dr. Franco D’Alessandro. (From Left to Right)
