Alexandria (Egypt) moves to protect its heritage against rising sea levels

Last week, the city of Alexandria completed a set of dykes to mitigate the erosion of its coastline. Work on the coastal defences began five years ago, with the aim of protecting one of the jewels of Egypt’s port heritage, the citadel of Qaitbay. The dykes will also play a crucial role in limiting the influx of sale water into water tables and preventing the city’s foundations from being destroyed.

ARUP ranks Auckland (New Zealand) as the number one ‘sponge’ city

In response to climate change, Auckland has adopted a policy of greening its public spaces. Consultants have calculated that almost 50% of the city’s surface area is either green or blue. However, its urban fabric was not always this way. Less than ten years ago, the port city was hit by major flooding, which was exacerbated by the significant artificialisation of its coastline. Thanks to its new policy, Auckland will be better equipped to handle the vagaries of the climate and to absorb excess water.

Emergency Control Plan Training at the Port of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

Companhia Docas do Rio de Janeiro promoted the training in accordance with the Emergency Control Plan scenario at the Port of Rio de Janeiro. The exercise involved internal and external stakeholders, including the Port Authorities of Rio de Janeiro and Niteroi, port operators and tenants, the Port Police and the Fire Brigade. The participants received practical and theoretical instructions on the measures that need to be taken in case of chemical decomposition of stored products. This training was important to allow for more effective joint action, disseminate safety culture among employees, and improve the communication flow between teams.

Public consultation for “energy island” off Esbjerg (Denmark)

One of the country’s biggest civil engineering projects, is how the developers are describing the “energy island” to be built off the coast of Esbjerg. This artificial island, amid the numerous offshore wind farms off Denmark’s western coast, will serve as a flexible and innovative hub for transforming offshore power generation. By 2033, the island’s energy capacity will be 3 GW. The public debate is intended to garner the support of as many local stakeholders as possible.
