Designing against vessel impact, London

About this event

The interface between marine infrastructure development and passing vessel traffic is becoming more important as the number of infrastructure developments close to busy fairways in ports and harbours increases.

The requirement for infrastructure developers to design against possible vessel impact is clear, but as vessel size increases, fairways become more congested, and developments' proximity to fairways reduces effective liaison with waterways managers is needed to ensure appropriate mitigation measures are incorporated into the design of water edge structures.

This seminar provides a multi-disciplinary forum to assist infrastructure developers / designers, vessel designers / operators, and waterways managers to appropriately assess risk and to design effective measures to minimise that risk and ensure safety.
