MarCom WG 184: Design Principles for Dry Marine Terminals - Report just released. 

Seaborne dry bulk trade (including iron ore, coal and grain) was 4.3 billion tonnes in 2017 – accounting for some 35% of world seaborne trade. PIANC’s WG 184 has produced an up-to-date planning and design reference guide covering current technology, vessel types, and bulk handling equipment.

Congratulations to the Working Group for producing this excellent report. Great to see such a strong contribution from PIANC Australia & New Zealand to the international body of knowledge. There were five Australian contributors to the report, which is very relevant for our region's conditions. Well done Richard Morgan, who chaired the group, Grace Go, Peter Kastrup, Bob Lamont-Smith and Ross Newcombe. More details on our Website.
