Engineers Australia awards HP-OCT™ the winning project at AEEA 2020 Victoria
Nominated for Sir William Hudson award.
Melbourne, 17 September 2020: The Australian Engineering Excellent Awards first began in 1988, after a decade of celebrating local projects through an Engineers Australia office. Brought to the national stage, an excellence award recognises outstanding achievement in engineering and the invaluable contribution that engineering makes to the economy, community and environment. Winning projects exhibit excellence, distinction, merit, perfection and quality.
“This award is a testament to the ability of Australian engineers, and Cylite’s team in particular, to produce world class medical technology combining cutting edge optics, electronics, software and mechanical design” remarked Grant Frisken, Cylite’s CTO.
Kylee Hall, Cylite’s VP Sales and Marketing Manager commented, ”It is such an honour and credit to the whole team at Cylite to be named as one of the four Victorian winners, but to then be awarded the overall win and be representing Victoria in November for the Sir William Hudson award, the highest honour a project can receive from Engineers Australia, was unexpected and overwhelming.”
Of the 18 Victorian finalists, there were several multibillion-dollar architectural building developments, numerous significant infrastructure projects and even a worlds first multifunctional solar chimney.
“This is a wonderful endorsement of the hugely talented team that are delivering this exciting product. The combination of a unique approach to 3D ophthalmic imaging and diagnostics, with well-executed design and outstanding multi-disciplinary engineering, have delivered a product that we trust will prove worthy of this accolade over the years to come. We are greatly appreciative also of our partner Cobalt Design, for providing the highly functional and eye-catching industrial design to support this product into a clinical setting.” said Steve Frisken, Cylite’s CEO.
Andrew Parkinson, Cylite’s VP of Engineering commented “I would like to thank and congratulate all contributors to the success of the HP-OCT in these awards, both within our engineering team and beyond. I would like to express my personal gratitude to our CTO, Grant Frisken, without his leadership and support this achievement would not have been possible. It is humbling to witness that amazing sense of possibility that arises when a group such as this comes together, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.”
