BEEAs winner recognised by IET

Multiple British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) winner Team Consulting has received further recognition, this time as the recipient of three IET Innovation Awards.

The company, which won the BEEAs Consultancy of the Year Award in 2012 and whose senior engineering consultant Sebastien Cuvelier Mussalian scooped both the Design Engineer of the Year Award and Grand Prix for 2013, won the IET awards for its OrganOx metra innovation.

The technology seeks to simplify the transport of organs in between transplants. For decades, livers have been removed from donors, flushed, packed in ice and raced to a waiting patient. Some organs make it, but many don't.

OrganOx metra recreates the core functions of the human body and keeps the liver alive, whilst providing key data for surgeons.

IET president Barry Brooks said: "Team Consulting should be very proud to have won an incredible three IET Innovation Awards. It was selected from a highly impressive set of global innovations as one of the most forward thinking, pioneering advances in the field."
