The Perth Wave Energy Project - Design and Construction Update
Date:
Monday, September 22, 2014 - 17:30
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Jonathan Fiévez - Chief Technology Officer, Carnegie Wave Energy
Venue:
Auditorium, Engineers Australia, 712 Murray Street, West Perth
Synopsis:
The project employs three 5th generation CETO wave energy converters to feed the onshore power station where hydraulic energy is converted to zero emission electrical power. Australia’s largest naval base and the 4000 people serving there ensure the island has a thirst for power as well as fresh water, which the project also provides through its pilot, wave powered desalination plant. The CETO 5 converter itself has a unique design that has been developed over a number of years by Carnegie’s world class engineering team and in-house computational modelling capability. Many components however have their heritage in offshore oil and gas applications and Carnegie is working with some of the world’s leading suppliers to adapt their technology to CETO.
Asbestos Contaminated Soil
Date:
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 17:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Steven Nikolovski, State Inspector – Asbestos and Demolition Services. Workcover NSW and Niall Johnston, Manager Contaminated Sites. NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA)
Venue:
Trade and Investment Centre, Level 47, MLC Centre, 19 Martin Place, Sydney
Synopsis:
When asbestos is identified in soil managing it can quickly turn into an expensive exercise. Tipping fees, contractor costs and delays to projects can potentially cripple budgets. Recent documents released by Workcover NSW and the EPA have provided clarity and consistency in the way that asbestos is managed when identified in soil. This presentation aims to provide an introduction into the application of these documents so that when asbestos is identified it can be appropriately managed.
Sustainability Lunch
Date:
Friday, September 12, 2014 - 12:00

Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
A/Prof. Dr Michele Rosano
Venue:
Lecture Room, Engineers Australia, 712 Murray Street, West Perth, WA
Synopsis:
This presentation will provide an update on the latest research and findings from a number of disciplines on the scale and potential impacts of climate change. It will review the risks for engineering decision making and the opportunities for engineering leadership in this realm. Michele recently attended Al Gores’ Climate Leadership training workshop in Melbourne.
Smart Electricity Grid Technologies
Date:
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Alan Pears AM - RMIT, Dr Roger Dargaville - Melbourne University, Warner Priest - Siemens
Venue:
John Connell Auditorium, 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne
Synopsis:
The rapid growth of small distributed electricity generators such as wind, solar (both domestic and utility scale), biomass and waste gas, pose challenges for integration into the existing electricity distribution network. This seminar will examine technologies applicable to the control and management of electricity networks of the future.

Treating Endocrine Disruptors in our Waterways
Date:
Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Dr Stuart Khan, UNSW
Venue:
Engineers Australia Auditorium
Synopsis:
Endocrine distributors found in waste water have been difficult to treat and as a result have caused abnormalities in the sex hormones of fish and other aquatic organisms. So what treatment methods are available today and how effective are they at reducing this impact on the aquatic environment? Dr Khan is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the UNSW and gave us some fascinating insights into the endocrine distributors commonly found in waste water and how they result in abnormalities in the sex hormones of fish and other aquatic organisms. He also discussed the treatment methods are available today and how effective are they at reducing this impact on the aquatic environment.
