Inpex Surveys Darwin Harbour Channel Floor (Australia)

As reported by ABC News, Inpex, an energy giant, in preparation for a dredging project in Darwin Harbour, will survey the harbour floor.

Starting this week the survey will commence. Divers, survey boats as well as barges will begin the project in the channel area.

Inpex needs the survey data to get a detailed map of the harbour floor before the dredging could begin.

The shipping channel will be dredged to allow large LNG tankers to travel through the harbour to Blaydin Point, where a multi-billion dollar plant is being built to process gas piped from the Ichthys field in the Timor Sea.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
