to hear Graham Westgarth – Technical Director of Teekay Shipping - present the 2010 President’s Invitation Lecture – “Operation into Design for the 21st Century”. Tis was the largest number ever to have attended a President’s Invitation Lecture – a tribute to the speaker. In his Lecture, Graham gave a brief


overview of Teekay’s US$3.5 bio dollar newbuild program over the last decade outlining the types of vessels built (Aframax , Suezmax , LNG , Shuttle) , the shipyards used and experiences during the process. He then focussed on the operational performance once in service including the impact and consequences of design decisions using real case studies as illustrative examples. He then turned to what is really

important to the owner and customers, describing how Teekay uses tools/technology to monitor

certain and

improve performance with the aim of demonstrating that as the industry comes under greater scrutiny then it need to be continually refining its approach to how risk is managed. Finally

he described a number of

innovative design ideas which Teekay has developed in-house over the years which challenged some of our conventional approaches. Te President’s Invitation Lecture was

again sponsored by ABS, whose support for this and other Institution activities is
