ADEC Innovations Acquires Kedge Pty Ltd and Southern Ocean Carbon Company

Maritime ESG- Kedge is walking the walk…

Our maritime ESG consultancy capability has recently been boosted by additional staff coming on board with particular expertise in the various elements. The term ‘Consultancy’ is one that can send shudders up the bravest of us- the MD had a great boss who used to describe consultants as ‘people who borrowed your watch-then told you the time’! We don’t do that. If you use us for any ESG matter, consultancy or otherwise, you immediately gain access to insights and contacts and systems that would otherwise take years to acquire- enabling you peace of mind and a quick path to where you hope to be going.

By way of example- we don’t just ‘consult’ on marine oil spill responses- we have actively done work on this ourselves- we finished a complex local spill response last Friday…We don’t just consult on P&I response/governance- we do this for international clients-in the last few months we completed a 6 month operation that involved environmental challenges, engineering challenges and the need to engage with key stakeholders that was recently granted a prestigious award.. The list goes on.

We are, every day, quietly and competently working with a number of major clients who recognise the value of transparent ESG compliance and we would love to look at your needs and assist if we may.

Please don’t hesitate to call the MD on 0061 417 544 339 for a no obligation discussion.

Towards Zero Carbon

Today, 21 July 2022,  is an important day for Kedge- its the day we pass over our last conventional vehicle and complete our switch to hybrids.  Eventually we will be fully electric both on land and on the water…As part of our company commitment to a zero carbon future we have taken this important step-putting our money where our mouths are.

Additionally, we are gearing up to be the go-to company for fleet and vessel greening in Australia and NZ. Watch our social media and other feeds and by all means contact us if you want a no-obligation discussion on how you might take your vessel or fleet green.

Are you ready for 1 July 2018???

If, like the majority of people we speak to you would answer this question ‘am I ready for what on 1 July 2018???’ the simple answer is that its the date that AMSA take over full responsibility for service delivery from the States and NT.

Its not entirely clear at this stage as to exactly what this will mean for fleets or individual vessels. Here at Kedge we are keeping our ears very close to the ground to give our customers the best chance of a simple and straightforward transition.

If there is anything that is concerning you or that we can assist with please by all means drop us a line at service@kedge.com.au

New and Updated AMSA Standards and Marine Orders Released

Some good work from the AMSA standards and legislation team has just been released.

The Fire Standard C4, a perennial nightmare to apply has been re-cast and looks pretty decent.

There is some good news on transitional standards application which could simplify bringing  vessels into new areas of operation without  having to completely re-design and rebuild them.

Here’s the link to the Standards- you will find the others in the new-look AMSA website under their applicable sections. https://www.amsa.gov.au/vessels-operators/regulations-and-standards-vessels/national-standard-commercial-vessels

Negotiating these legal and tech standards can be a bit confusing- if you get stuck call us on 1 300 89 95 96 and we will link you with one of our  friendly experienced surveyors who will be happy to help you.

Human Factors Design Capability

With the addition of Dr Apsara to our team we have acquired a world-class capability to assist clients with HF/HCD.

Capabilities include:

  • The ability to conduct HF/HCD analysis of ship designs using Usability Heuristics underpinned by software such as Human CAD- applying Apsara’s cutting edge findings from her recent PhD research at AMC.
  • The capacity to conduct HF/HCD analysis of other designs and work spaces- for example AUV launching and recovery modules, Offshore workspaces etc.
  • Perform link analysis/ergonomic analysis of design drawings and provide recommendation whether the drawings comply with available HF design guidelines and criteria.

If you are designing vessels of any size and need cutting edge HF/HCD input we would love to join your team. Contact Adam on 0417 544 339 for a confidential discussion.
