PIANC provides access to worldwide trends and challenges in port and waterway development and management.
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.
Chris is a chartered naval architect and maritime advisory consultant in Arup’s London maritime team. He supports commercial, government and non-profit clients with policy, regulatory and technical advice to further the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.
