PIANC Seminar: Ships and Berths Interfaces

8th October 2018

London

PIANC held a successful joint PIANC & RINA Ships at Berth Conference on the 14th May 2018 which highlighted some interface issues where the disciplines of naval architecture and maritime civil engineering differed in approach but needed to reach common outcomes. It was decided to follow up on this by bringing a number of industry experts from both disciplines together and to convene cross-disciplinary workshops targeted at closing the gaps on such issues.

PIANC UK Half‑day Seminar

12 October 2015

Advanced Technologies in the Operation and Inspection of Waterways Infrastructure

Gathering data in order to understand environmental conditions, and to gain an appreciation of existing structures at the coast and along rivers and waterways, has traditionally been costly. Developments in technology over the last 10 years have made comprehensive data collection easier and, when used judiciously, more cost effective. Changes in technology have enabled new practical solutions to be developed to provide more durable infrastructure and to reduce operation and maintenance costs. This seminar provides an opportunity to learn about recent, and on-going, developments from some industry leaders.

Construction in the marine environment holds many unique challenges. This seminar provided an opportunity to learn from the experiences of a number of Europe’s top maritime contractors, where they reported on some of their recent projects.
