APP welcomes Innovative Manufacturing as newest member
The APP is pleased to announce that Innovative Manufacturing Inc. is the latest company to join as an Associate Member. Specializing in a wide range of anti-corrosion, insulation, sealing and repair products, Innovative’s Marine Division Manager, Adam Eweida, saw a fit with the APP given their worldwide distribution.
“The global cost of corrosion has been estimated to be as much as $2.5 trillion and the marine industry accounts for roughly 20 per cent of that figure,” he said, quoting a study from the NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) International and adding that the same study found a saving of 15 to 35 per cent of the cost of damage with the implementation of corrosion preventative measures. “The marine industry is especially vulnerable to corrosion as harsh ocean conditions result in compromised metal surfaces. Innovative Manufacturing provides solutions to protect against these deteriorating effects, especially for infrastructure like marine pilings.”

Lynker project now also benefits at-risk community
October 29, 2020 — As this year’s bottomfish fishery-independent survey comes to a close, the fishermen participating in the survey have met the challenges of the pandemic to once again produce an incredibly robust data set. The bottomfish caught during the survey which are highly prized by local community are normally provided as bio-samples to the life history staff at the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center for use in the fishery stock assessment, but only the otoliths (bones in the ears that can be used to determine age) and the gonads are all that is necessary for analysis while the fillets are discarded. In an effort to give back to the community in some small way, Lynker has piloted a program to donate the fillets from bottomfish bio-samples to help feed the local community, which has become a case study in ‘ohana’.

Anchor QEA Blog: Redeveloping ports to support offshore wind energy
By Walter Dinicola, Anchor QEA Principal Engineer
October 29, 2020 — Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology that is poised to play an important role in future energy systems along the coastline. If the United States is to fully develop its offshore wind energy potential, the right port infrastructure is critical. More and more coastal communities are advancing port infrastructure ventures as they compete to become centers of economic activity for the future of the offshore wind energy industry.
On a fundamental level, there are several key areas in which a port can focus its harbor strategies to be successful in supporting offshore wind farm development. As a newer industry, however, offshore wind energy calls for specialized equipment, services, and labor that ports will have to adapt to in order to be operational. Identifying the needs of the industry helps clarify the port-related requirements for offshore wind energy development and the potential utilization of available ports.
