This program was carried out under the sponsorship of the Canadian International Development Agency and has been described by evaluators as one of their most successful projects. On this project he served as a design and construction advisor for a new class of VIWA river buoy tenders.
In March 2006, he has completed two contracts in Cambodia for the Mekong River Commission. The first project was a Master Plan for Navigation on the Mekong River, where he served as the maritime safety expert. The second contract was the design of an aids to navigation system for the lower Mekong River.
On behalf of the Asian Development Bank, he recommended improvements to Interisland shipping in the Solomon Islands. This project involved implementation of new regulations small vessel coastal industry and recommendations to corporatize the country’s marine department.
Also completed is an Asian Development Bank Project for the government of Papua New Guinea. His role here is to provide project management procurement expertise for three major aids to navigation rehabilitation contracts totaling $US15 million. On this project he developed the plan for a multi million dollar reconstruction of all Papua New Guinea aids to navigation and provided advice to a community engagement program. He is familiar with many areas of the waterways and marine operations in SE Asia, Australia and the Western Pacific.
Additionally, he also conducted a small vessel traffic analysis of Chalong Bay in Thailand, which examined pleasure yacht and tourist boat safety and traffic.
