NTRO becomes member of PIANC

NTRO is pleased to join the PIANC community through the Australia and New Zealand Chapter.

Established in 1885, PIANC or the World Association of Waterborne Transport Infrastructure, continues to be the leading partner for government and the private sector in the design, development and maintenance of ports, waterways and coastal areas.  

A forum where professionals around the world join forces to provide expert guidance on cost-effective, reliable and sustainable infrastructure to facilitate waterborne transport, PIANC is a non-political and non-profit organisation that brings together the best international experts on technical, economic and environmental issues.

NTRO Executive Director, Ports and Airports, Jason Sprott is pleased to join the PIANC community to share knowledge in the ports sector, especially with PIANC’s publication of Technical Reports, released by International Working Groups, who gather, analyse, and consolidate international, state-of-the-art, best practice material to provide evidence-based guidance.

“Our membership with PIANC opens up an amazing range of technical insights in the maritime space. Knowing the quality of the PIANC technical reports, I am excited to open up the knowledge of the PIANC community to the NTRO team – and vice-versa,” Mr Sprott said.

NTRO has recently announced membership with Ports Australia and is looking forward to adding PIANC to their memberships to share knowledge and work with Australia and New Zealand’s port network.

“We hope to share our transport insights with the PIANC community in the years ahead as we strive to fulfil our vision of making transport in all its forms, safe, sustainable and a driver of economic well-being,” Mr Sprott said.
