3D Modeling for Spillway Upgrade
Austin Engineering constructed a 3D model of the Corra Linn Dam as part of the spillway upgrade project. The model was created using the latest technology with the end goal of increasing stakeholder engagement. Along with partners FortisBC Inc. and Selkirk College, Austin Engineering Inc. won the Clean Energy BC ‘Operational Excellence’ award in 2017 for this project.
The award celebrates their unique partnership, which has developed innovative solutions to support the future operations of one of FortisBC’s ‘extreme consequence’ dams, as well as build opportunities and access for Selkirk College students to work with industry.
