WORLD NEWS Are you ready for extreme weather? AUSTRALIA: The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has created an on-line training course aimed at preparing marina and boatyard personnel anywhere in the world for increasingly frequent extreme weather events. The title of the course is called Club Marine Extreme Weather Preparedness. During 2018, the course content was presented to over 130 marina managers and staff across Australia and the seminar was highly rated by participants. Since then, MIA industry education officer, Vijaya Selvaraj, has transformed the content into an audiovisual format that includes numerous videos, maps, diagrams, downloadable resources and interactive tests for each participant to undertake as the next stage of the course. According to Selvaraj, the average participant, with a reasonable command of English, should be able to complete the on-line course in around 90 minutes. The course draws on the experiences of marina professionals around the world with input from Club Marine in its capacity as the largest recreational boat insurer in Australia. While cyclones/hurricanes/ typhoons are given attention through the delivery of case studies, there is sufficient relevance in the content for marinas in all regions to participate in the course given the increasing frequency of storms and storm cells that deliver extreme wind, wave, surge and hail events. The interactive content specifically examines different types of weather events and their impacts, covering: infrastructure considerations; development of an Extreme Weather Management Plan; legal considerations; and examination of sound berthing agreements and insurance implications. MIA chairman, Andrew Chapman, said: “The course has been designed as a global product at a time when the need for demonstrated risk mitigation has never been greater in our industry. I strongly encourage marina personnel to log into the course located within the MIA website.” Go-ahead for Ocean Reef AUSTRALIA: Environmental approval has been granted for the marine portion of the new worldclass Ocean Reef Marina project in Joondalup, Perth, Western Australia. Environment Minister Stephen Dawson gave the approval following a Public Environmental Review, paving the way for construction to commence next year. Conditions to the approval include the implementation of measures to ensure good water quality and protection of the natural environment. Ocean Reef Marina will have 565 wet berths, a 200-boat drystack, a mix of over a thousand new homes, and retail and commercial space. It is projected to deliver more than 900 local jobs and create a vibrant new tourism, hospitality and residential precinct. New bid for Larnaca CYPRUS: A Cypriot and Israeli joint venture, Kition Ocean Holdings, has submitted a proposal for the development of Larnaca port and marina. According to Cyprus Mail, the proposal includes extending the existing marina to accommodate boats up to 150m (492ft) in length and adding traditional restaurants, green areas, hotels, villas and commercial spaces. The total project, with its ambitious port-related upgrades, would likely be the biggest single investment made to date in the country and is the latest proposal in a line of stalled privatisation plans. www.marinaworld.com - September/October 2019 15
