Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
This new publication from PIANC is by the organisation’s EnviCom Working Group 175, is priced at € 85.00, of 73 pages in length and available at: https://www.pianc.org/publications/envicom/wg175
Previous EnviCom Working Groups have developed procedures addressing various aspects of environmental risk assessment of dredging and dredged material disposal related to waterborne transport infrastructure, providing a scientific basis for making decisions based on environmental risk assessment data.
However, these reports did not specifically address methodologies for managing environmental risks. Recognising this gap, an effort was undertaken to develop a practical guide derived from existing methods and approaches for informing decision makers managing environmental risk associated with waterborne transport infrastructure projects.
The document is intended to provide technical guidance to decision makers regarding the risk management process. It describes a methodology to inform risk management decisions for the comprehensive range of hazards and environmental risks pertinent to waterborne transport infrastructure.
The aim of this guidance is to support sound decision making and build on a number of key themes, including:
The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure, established in 1885. PIANC continues to be the leading partner for government and private sector in the design, development and maintenance of ports, waterways and coastal areas.
As a non-political and non-profit organisation, PIANC brings together the best international experts on technical, economic and environmental issues pertaining to waterborne transport infrastructure.
The organisation is renowned for its outstanding and high-quality technical reports on ports and waterborne transport infrastructure.
PIANC’s mission is to provide expert guidance, recommendations and technical advice, to keep the international waterborne transport community connected, and to support young professionals and countries in transition.
Members include representatives of public authorities, corporations and interested individuals.
Longitude, an LOC Group Company, announce on 22 January that it has been awarded the contract for the Trinity House Vessel Replacement Project Technical Specialist.
This agreement will, it is understood, see Longitude work on the requirements definition and tender specification for the Trinity House new aids to navigation service vessel. Support will then continue through the procurement and build phases of the contract, with the end goal of delivering a vessel to replace THV Patricia commissioned in 1982.
Longitude will provide a conceptual design of the vessel to Trinity House, to facilitate a thorough analysis of the vessel’s requirements, and look into incorporating new technologies, including hybrid systems. Once the design phase is complete, Longitude will work alongside the chosen shipyard to ensure that the design and build phases are successfully executed and that the end product is in accordance with Trinity House requirements.
Work is well advanced with our Congress two months away.
