New technology for safe and efficient offshore construction lifting

9.00 pm — 10.00 pm AEDT, 05 December 2023
Engineers Australia Perth Level 10, Allendale Square , Perth Western Australia, 6000
Online and in person (Perth)


Join us for the RINA’s bi-monthly technical presentation, involving WA local naval architects providing an opportunity for professional development and in-person networking. We will discuss the use of correlation of the actual site and lifting conditions, unmanned lifting and incremental steps to fully autonomous lifting. The adoption of new technologies to pertain risk reduction and greater safety of offshore operations are extremely relevant for all stakeholders in offshore operations.

Learning outcomes 

  • There will be sharing of new technology in the field of offshore lifting providing an opportunity for attending Naval Architects to improve understanding and adopt new practices. 
  • Novel technologies to forecast and minimise dynamic loading on cranes during offshore lifts; Principles of unmanned lifting from marine vessels, including systems that minimize risk exposure of offshore personnel.
  • New technological developments worldwide towards fully autonomous lifting: remote operation of cranes, load orientation and sway control, real-time mapping of the work environment and autonomous operation of cranes.
