Technical Presentation about the new Highway 99 Tunnel Program

C.I.MAR.E.  VANCOUVER ISLAND BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: Thursday, April 21st, 2022

TIME: 19:00 Pacific (22:00 Eastern; 23:00 Atlantic, 23:30 NFLD)

The new Highway 99 Tunnel Program

Abstract:

 

This massive (4+ billion $$) project and the removal of the Massey Tunnel will affect marine and road traffic in the area during its technically challenging construction, and will be a significant improvement for our travel to and from the mainland when it is finished

Technical Presentation: Adapting to New Technology Insertion and Design Changes Through the Use of a Novel Design-Management Simulator

C.I.MAR.E.  ATLATNIC BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: THURSDAY, April 21st, 2022

TIME: 12:15 Atlantic (8:15 Pacific, 11:15 Eastern, 12:45 NFLD)

Adapting to New Technology Insertion and Design Changes Through the Use of a Novel Design-Management Simulator

Abstract:

Many defence projects have incurred significant cost overruns and delays, with the causes attributed to program pressure, changing requirements, immature technology, under-estimation of risks, and the lack of organizational integration. Traditional practices and measures are unable to predict the impact of new technology and design changes. Moreover, there is not a practical approach or tool to help integrate multiple disciplines so as to better understand system and program complexity and the impact of changes.  Understanding risks, potential changes and technologies through knowledge gain early in the design can help reduce costs and schedule delays.  Furthermore, the use of set-based design and engineering principles can provide for a robust design that can better accommodate changes.  Along with these principles, systems thinking, system dynamics, techno-socio-economic and cultural factors are considered in development of a novel design-management simulator. This simulator is presented through application of a case study on an advanced marine integrated power system.  The simulator provides an integrated ‘big picture’ perspective not possible with the use of separate engineering and management models.

Technical Presentation – Development of a Unique Amphibious All-Terrain Vehicle

C.I.MAR.E.  VANCOUVER ISLAND BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: Thursday, Mars 17th, 2022

TIME: 19:00 Pacific (22:00 Eastern; 23:00 Atlantic, 23:30 NFLD)

Development of a Unique Amphibious All-Terrain Vehicle with Air-Cushion Caterpillars for Offshore Operations

Abstract:

Dr. Voyloshinikov will describe the engineering which went into the development of the vehicle in his presentation.

Long ago in another era, I was involved in the development of what might be an analogous vehicle for use in ice-covered / ice-choked waters.  The marine engineering involved in such a craft is quite fascinating, and the presentation should be more than interesting.

Technical Presentation: Decarbonizing Marine Shipping Clean Fuels for a Greener Future

C.I.MAR.E.  ATLATNIC BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: THURSDAY, March 17th, 2022

TIME: 12:15 Atlantic (8:15 Pacific, 11:15 Eastern, 12:45 NFLD)

Decarbonizing Marine Shipping Clean Fuels for a Greener

Summary:

Bud Streeter will present some of the findings from Clear Seas Centre’s ongoing research on reducing GHGs from marine fuels.

Abstract:

Replacing the current fossil fuels used in ships with cleaner alternatives could provide solutions to the challenge of decarbonizing marine shipping. Ship fuels manufactured using renewable electricity and made purely from water and the gases found in the atmosphere, are being proposed. These include Hydrogen, Ammonia, Methanol and Methane. Clear Seas’ ongoing research on reducing GHGs from marine fuels provides some valuable insights.

Speaker:

Bud Streeter,

Bud Streeter has spent over 50 years in the marine business.  He is a graduate of the Canadian Coast Guard College and holds a First Class Engineering Certificate of Competency.  He has served as an Instructor at the Canadian Coast Guard College, a Marine Inspector, Examiner and Manager with Marine Safety and as a Technical Director and Executive Officer with Marine Atlantic.  He served as Director General Marine Safety during which time he was the head of Delegation to many IMO meetings. His most recent fulltime employment was with Lloyd’s Register where he held executive positions in the Americas.  He retired from full time employment at the end of 2017.

He has served as a Board Member for Meridian Shipping Limited and for many Lloyd’s Register entities.  He was appointed to the Canadian Advisory Council on National Security and served as a marine security advisor between 2005 and 2009.

Bud is a member of the board and Past Chair of the Clear Seas Centre for Responsible Marine Shipping, an independent research centre that promotes safe and sustainable marine shipping in Canada. He also serves as the Honorary President of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE).  He is a recipient of the CIMarE’s Medal of Excellence.
