ADBP Partner awarded DPC Rising Star of 2018

Dr Colm Sheehan was honoured by the International Dredging and Port Construction (DPC) industry at their annual award ceremony on Tuesday in Amsterdam, being named the Rising Star for 2018. Colm has been involved with the dredging industry since 2006, and joining the dredging consultancy Anthony Bates Partnership in 2010 after completing his PhD in dredge material management.

Colm has been an active committee member of CEDA for several years and also has involvement with PIANC working groups. In his current role, he is responsible for the whole range of dredging related disciplines including feasibility studies, contracts, licensing, surveys, project management, site supervision and client liaison. An Irishman from Cork, he now handles all of the partnership’s work in Ireland for many of the Port and Harbours, as well as working on international capital projects and expert witness cases.

The DPC judges stated that “Colm is a dedicated and extremely hard worker and his productivity is formidable, but more importantly his deep and profound interest in Dredging makes him the perfect recipient of this award. The judges look forward to how Colm’s career will continue to progress.”
