At HR Wallingford, we design smart, resilient solutions across the natural and built environments to help everyone live and work more sustainably with water. By harnessing research, data insights and the power of our collective expertise, we help the world to better understand the changing influence and impact of water.

As a specialist water-focused consultancy, we build and test scale models to help us explore developments in the coastal and marine environments. Our facilities are some of the largest in the world. To support this work as well as the work of other national and international research and commercial facilities, we develop specialist equipment, software and instrumentation.

Our Equipment, Technology and Innovation (ET&I) group – a multi-disciplinary team of mechanical, electrical and software engineers – is focused on developing and supplying this equipment. Our product portfolio stretches across high-quality wave generation, hydrodynamic instrumentation and data acquisition systems used by universities and marine research facilities worldwide.  We also design and supply remote platforms for survey-related activities on inland water.  Innovation and customer focus are the keys to our success.
