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.
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.
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.
In this past presentation from the Coast and Marine Structures Summit David Edelman, Project Engineer at Queensland Sugar Ltd explores:
- Main learnings in asset management of the Lucinda offshore steel structures
- Cost effective solutions for repair and maintenance of aging steel infrastructure, including the long term use of petrolatum tapes for corrosion protection
- Cost comparison of different techniques for protecting against corrosion
In this past presentation from the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017 Matthew Primmer, Engineering Manager, Port of Hastings Development Authority explores:
- Providing a systematic and transparent process for the justification and timing of asset management activities
- Obtaining a detailed understanding of maintenance liabilities, priorities, risks and opportunities
- Developing a strategic approach to asset management to optimise the performance of the assets, minimise lifecycle costs and mitigate risks of asset failure
- Providing a clear line of sight between the corporate objectives and day-to-day maintenance activities
Managing and Optimising the Performance of your Assets through Strategic Long-Term Port Master Planning
In this past presentation from the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017 David Wignall, Senior Vice President at the Indonesia Port Corporation explores:

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
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.
