Event:
QLD Events
Presenter:
Doug Harland
Venue:
Hawken Auditorium, Engineering House, 447 Upper Edward St, Brisbane
Synopsis:
Australia is facing many challenges at present - a significant debt, congested cities and their heat island affect, looming peak oil, daily road fatalities, financing much needed costly and community intrusive light rail systems and the loss of its skilled and innovative manufacturing capability. An intelligent Personalised Rapid Transport system (PRT) is slowly gaining traction globally and the presenter has the view Australia needs to embrace this system to assist in meeting the above challenges.

The fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change makes clear that climate change will affect Australia significantly in the decades ahead. Consequences of climate change include sea level rise, increased severity of severe weather and more frequent heat waves. Engineering is the key to many adaptation measures society will need to implement. This seminar will examine the role of engineering in climate change adaptation.
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.
