Chris Bell will discuss recent research on the scale of fuel production and supply infrastructure required to supply first mover green shipping corridors and the implications for ports.
Malou Wagner will discuss the requirements for port infrastructure to support fixed & floating offshore wind projects in the construction phase, with an emphasis on foundation installation.
Martin Mannion will discuss the requirements for port infrastructure to support fixed & floating offshore wind projects, with an emphasis on floating offshore wind
Jamie Holmes will outline some of the key potential shipping and navigation risk and impacts between Floating offshore wind (FLOW) and fixed foundation projects, with reference to experiences on some of the world’s first FLOW projects and will also look ahead at some of the key challenges that lie ahead as FLOW projects make the jump in scale from demonstration (typically <100MW) to commercial scale.

Climate change adaptation is now high on the agenda for many ports and waterways, but there remain challenges in implementation, particularly in accommodating the many uncertainties encountered.
This half-day technical seminar will introduce the recent PIANC technical note on Managing Climate Change Uncertainties in Selecting, Designing and Evaluating Options for Resilient Navigation Infrastructure. The seminar will also:
Present international case studies on the application of climate change scenarios, and on the need to prepare for unprecedented conditions
Summarise the results of a recent survey on the costs and consequences of extreme weather events for ports, and
Explore how and why port and waterway operators should make the business case for investment in adaptation and strengthened resilience.
