IMECHE, the British Institution of Mechanical Engineers, awarded Fernando Lidonnici, president of Sant’Ambrogio Servizi Industriali, with the prestigious Julius Groen Prize 2017 for ‘leading and developing the Design Rules of the European pressure vessel code EN13445 and a wider international contribution to European pressure systems’:
Fernando Lidonnici is an outstanding international expert in his field who has made a lifelong contribution to the pressure systems community. His work on EN13445 will leave a lasting legacy and have a pan-European impact for years to come. He has spent his full professional life working, leading, serving and inspiring others in pressures system design and analysis and code development and continues to do so even to this day. He is therefore a very well-deserving recipient of the 2017 Donald Julius Groen Prize.
