Lisa Reilly (Peel Ports):
'What is marine biosecurity? Some good practice examples from a UK port'

  • The talk will discuss practical examples of biosecurity management and best practice management techniques that have been put in place across each of Peels UK ports. I will also talk about some of our future aspirations for biosecurity management and some of the challenges of biosecurity management in a port.

Parsa Hashempour (Boskalis Westminster):
‘Holding the line in Southsea’

  • Southsea Coastal Scheme is UK’s largest local authority led coastal defence project, with aim to reduce the risk of flooding to more than 10,000 homes. Boskalis Westminster is part of the VSBW joint venture which are currently working on protecting the unique heritage around Southsea castle.

Panos Paraskevas (Byrne Looby):
‘Ardersier Port Energy Transition Facility’

  • Ardersier Port Authority is seeking to create a next-generation port with a circular economy recycling ships and North Sea assets into renewable energy structures. The 400-acre brownfield site near Inverness requires major infrastructure development and ByrneLooby are currently designing the phased works including 2km of quay wall and a new slipway.

Sunny Chan (The Environment Agency):
‘South East Coastal Defence project’

  • Tilbury Fort flood defence was constructed in the 1970s. Approaching five decades of service life, the flood defence is in need of maintenance. This presentation covers what has been done in 2021 to prolong the service life of the flood defence, to satisfy the objectives defined under the Thames Estuary Asset Management 2100 (TEAM2100) Programme.

Charlie Poole (Mott Macdonald):
'Parika Stelling Rehabilitation'

  • Parika Stelling is a river port located in Guyana approximately 40km west of the country’s capital, Georgetown, and acts as the gateway port to access Guyanese hinterland. The port receives the largest riverain flow of passengers and vehicles in Guyana - a mix of ferry and speedboat operators and trade in agricultural, fishing, and ancillary goods.
