About this event

In 2016 Sembcorp Marine installed the world’s largest spanning (non-propped) flap gate at Phase II of their new shipyard in Singapore. This record breaking dock gate was designed in 2015 by Royal HaskoningDHV.

This presentation will briefly explain the development of dock gates over the years and talk through some of the issues that had to be dealt with during the design and installation of some of the largest gates in the world.
