EXPLORING INNOVATIVE & INEXPENSIVE CORROSION CONTROL METHODS

EXPLORING INNOVATIVE & INEXPENSIVE CORROSION CONTROL METHODS

Ahead of Coasts and Marine Structures 2017, we chat with David Edelman, Project Engineer at Queensland Sugar Ltd (QSL). David discusses QSL’s wharf at Lucinda Bulk Sugar Terminal and the innovative and inexpensive corrosion control methods that they’re employing to extend the life of port assets.

Retrofitting Aging Infrastructure to Increase Wharf Capacity

Retrofitting Aging Infrastructure to Increase Wharf Capacity

Ahead of Coasts and Marine Structures 2017, we chat with, Lieutenant Commander Robert Short, Naval Harbour Master at The Royal Australian Navy’s Port Jackson Fleet Base East. Robert discusses the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) plans to retrofit their existing wharf structures in order to increase capacity and accommodate larger vessels.

Robotic Automation of Marine Structure Maintenance

Robotic Automation of Marine Structure Maintenance

Especially in the sea, the relentless forces of entropy are ever at work, corroding, pitting, and wearing away. Shipping ports face the challenge of keeping natural processes in check and maintaining key infrastructure so that the flow of goods can be conducted reliably and profitably.
Today, ports develop maintenance plans based on estimates derived from manual inspections that yield a fraction of the total available data of the inspected structures. As a consequence, such estimates are at best educated guesses intended to develop maintenance plans for billions of dollars of assets and infrastructure. Engineers, cautious by nature, err toward asset replacement based on incomplete structural assessments generated through spotty, error-prone human testing processes. Port managers, under pressure from government compliance bodies, accept the expense of replacement rather than risk failing a safety audit.
Artemis IRS offers a novel, integrated, and proven solution that provides engineers with objective, full-coverage analysis of structural assets free from any subjective human bias. The solution integrates the latest in real-world data acquisition within a robotic platform.
How Technology is Transforming Strategic Port Planning

How Technology is Transforming Strategic Port Planning

In this case study from Coast and Marine Structures 2016, Alice Zsembery, Senior Maritime & Port Planner at Mott MacDonald discusses how simulation technology is paving the way for effective system design and operational planning can be used as a way to improve end-to-end terminal performance over the long term.

Retrofitting Existing Structures to Increase Wharf Capacity and Future-Proof Ports

Retrofitting Existing Structures to Increase Wharf Capacity and Future-Proof Ports

In this past presentation from the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017, LCDR Robert Short, Naval Harbour Master – Sydney for the Royal Australian Navy explores:

  • Projects that have upgraded existing infrastructure
  • Scheduling and alternate berthing options
  • Future projects and proposals to increase wharf space

Driving Economic Investment with a $1.64b Port Expansion Project

Ahead of the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2018, we explore the $1.64b Port of Townsville expansion project and delve into the economic benefits the infrastructure investment will have on not only Townsville, but on the entire Queensland region. 

Extending the Asset Lifecycle: Exploring Strategies and Tips from Three Major Projects

Extending the Asset Lifecycle: Exploring Strategies and Tips from Three Major Projects

Ahead of the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2018 we explore the strategies and innovations asset owners and marine engineers at Queensland Sugar, Ausenco and Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal are utilising to future-proof their assets and extend lifecycle.

The Holistic View: Protecting and Future Proofing Marine Structures through Comprehensive Asset Management

The Holistic View: Protecting and Future Proofing Marine Structures through Comprehensive Asset Management

Ahead of the Coast and Marine Structure Summit 2018 we chat to Harvinder Singh, Senior Maritime Engineer at Jacobs Engineering Group. In this Q&A article Harvinder shares his insights into the state of the Australian coast and marine industry, and explores asset management and lifecycle best practice top tips, with a specific look at the design and development of fendering which helps protect and lengthen the service life of critical assets. 

Exploring 5 key challenges impacting Australian Costal Ports: And innovative solutions to the problems

For an island nation like Australia, ports serve as the gateway to the global economy. The continuous growth of international trade and the forecasted increase in cruise ship operations in Australia has meant that a number of ports have undergone considerable capacity increases, at considerable cost.

Check out our coast and marine structures infographic below to learn how asset owners and engineers are innovating to protect and future-proof their assets.
