"Technologies for Safe and Efficient Accommodation of New Vessels"
Accommodating new vessels in port settings presents multiple challenges to safe passage, the environment, mooring/berthing, dock facilities, and bunkering. Technologies are available to accurately evaluate potential impacts of new vessel accommodation, develop and test mitigation measures, and ensure safe and efficient operations. The presentation will focus on case studies and demonstration of technologies in use.
PEA members help the kids and families of Family Central
PEA members have a rich tradition of giving generously to the kids and families of Family Central. At the PEA December 7 holiday party, loads of toys and gifts were collected for the many needy families in our community. PEA members also made a generous cash donation to the organization. We were treated to beautiful singing of Christmas songs by some of the Family Central kids.
AND – we are proud to share news that our PEA member SEAFARERS INTERNATIONAL UNION also had their own toys and gifts collection for Family Central, adding a huge amount of joy to many, many happy and grateful kids! Nice work, Seafarers International Union!
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Sponsors of Port Everglades Association’s 11th annual ECONOMIC ENGINE PERFORMANCE REPORT® luncheon were introduced today (Dec. 4) to the Broward County Commission by Carnival Corp. executive David Candib and incoming PEA President Richard Vogel.
The 11th edition of the signature event is slated for April 26 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, once again bringing together hundreds of business leaders to hear from the chief executives of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.
