The winners of the 2023 Hans Hass Award have been announced – and it has gone to Patrick Lahey and Victor Vescovo for their astounding work on the 2019 Five Deeps Expedition.

The award, presented at the AUAS Awards banquet in New Orleans, recognizes exceptional contributions in the fields of arts and literature.

The pioneering expedition was the brainchild of Victor Vescovo and aimed to conduct dives to the deepest parts of all five oceans, which required a truly unique submersible alongside a specialist support vessel.

Patrick Lahey and the team at Triton Submersibles stepped up to the plate and created the Triton 36000/2, the first and only human-crewed submersible capable of routinely operating at the ocean’s full depth.
