9:10 am - 9:40 am Delivering the Smart Construction of Smart Ports to Improve Productivity

Eugene Cheah - General Manager Business Development, Fulton Hogan

With Australian container throughput forecast to grow to over 19 million TEU by 2033, but constrained by available land and road congestion, smarter solutions need to be developed to increase productivity. Eugene will present innovative ways to team, plan, procure, design, construct and maintain Smart Port infrastructure by way of case studies including:

  • Port Botany Shipping Terminal for Patrick’s AutoStrads ®
  • Moorebank Intermodal Terminal for Qube’s Automatic Stacking Cranes
  • Inland Rail Construction of the Parkes to Narromine section for ARTC
  • Webb Dock Smart Pavements for VICT’s Automatic Stacking Crane and Shuttle operations

9:40 am - 10:10 am Managing Aging Assets While Maintaining Operations

Matt Batman - Senior Asset & Development Manager, Port Authority of New South Wales

If aging assets aren’t closely managed, they become susceptible to damage, deterioration, and

costlier repairs, presenting a serious risk to business continuity. But even when managed well, unavoidable upgrades present their own challenge: keeping those assets available so operations can continue.

With many of its maritime assets exceeding 50 years of age, Port Authority of New South Wales is taking a

proactive, risk-based approach to long-term asset management and project development planning that maximises the operational availability of its most vital assets.

Case Study examples include

  • The Overseas Passenger Terminal Sydney
  • Aids to Navigation
