Best Practice Strategies for Design, Planning, Construction and Asset Management


The Economic Complexity Index (ECI) recently reported that Australia exported $243 billion and imported $219 billion, thus showcasing Australia’s economic leap since 1995 where the trade balance was 5 times less. Along with the increase in cruise ships, Australia is seeing about a 35% increase in its high-capacity fleets since the 1990s.
To remain competitive, we must plan, design, manage and maintain our assets more creatively and proactively to meet future demands and drive profitability. With this in mind, our 9th Annual Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017 will focus on how to maximise and prepare to accommodate bigger vessels.

Attend this 2-day conference and learn about:

  • Innovative planning and design of ports to create efficiencies that drive profit
  • Best practice asset management strategies and new PIANC design principles for bulk terminals
  • Proactive asset management and maintenance to improve durability and maximise and extend asset lifecycles
  • Alternative material and protection techniques trialled and tested in the US and Europe
  • Strategies to shift organisational culture and mindset from asset management to asset maintenance
  • How you can leverage technology to increase the efficiency of your marine structures
  • Case studies on retrofitting, expanding and upgrading your ports in cost-effective ways
