Ecobeach selects Bluemont Pty Ltd to combat beach erosion in Australia

Royal BAM from The Netherlands has selected Bluemont Pty Ltd as their exclusive distributor for Ecobeach for Australia and New Zealand.

Ecobeach is an innovative beach drainage system that has been developed with the basic intention to stabilise the sand volume of beaches that are sensitive to erosion. Besides stabilising the beach, Ecobeach can also lead to sand accretion.

Many beaches in Australia are combatting beach erosion, which is an important reason for Royal BAM to introduce Ecobeach to Australia. Ecobeach can also compliment other measures taken to protect our coastline, including dredging and seawalls. Ecobeach beach drainage system is becoming increasingly popular as it is low cost and has very little impact on the environment. More importantly: it does not bother the surfers, in contrary: it increases the size of the beach for recreational activities.

Bluemont also distributes BAM's Boxbarrier, a mobile flood barrier.

Philips, MQ Health and Emory Healthcare partner for Australia's first remote ICU monitoring program

Philips, Macquarie University's MQ Health and US-based Emory Healthcare, announced the launch of Australia's first - and only - remote Intensive Care Unit (eICU) monitoring program, to improve the outcomes of high risk patients in most need of 'round-the-clock' observation.

The partnership uses Philips' remote intensive care unit (eICU) technology and will see Emory Healthcare intensivists and critical care nurses based onsite at Sydney's MQ Health. MQ Health is the first university-led integrated health campus in Australia which brings together research and clinical care. This care model enables the Sydney-based US clinicians to provide continuous night-time critical care oversight to patients back in the United States during daytime hours, enabling the clinical team to be wide awake as opposed to working at night.

This item has also been covered by the Financial Review and the Australian Medical Assocation.

An immediate result of the Dutch Smart City Mission to Australia is that a workgroup of the leaders of the innovation hubs in these cities has been established! Getting to know each other, as well as each other's work, will in itself create a sharing of information, knowledge and experience, and this will be beneficial for each of the cities. The real aim will now be to bring the actual entrepreneurs across all of these hubs in contact with each other and, wherever possible, for them to collaborate and learn from each other's experiences.

Watch here how the Netherlands and Australia are strengthening their cooperation in the field of smart cities.

What's Happening?


14-18 November 2016

From 14 to 18 November, the Consulate General in Sydney organised a visit to the Netherlands with 12 delegates from the Australian logistics sector.

The visit was a follow up from last year's 'Ports of the Future' mission and organised together with the Australian Logistics Council. The delegates were shown around the Port of Rotterdam, the Dutch intermodal hub of Venlo, ProRail's head office in Utrecht and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. They also attended the Intermodal Europe conference in Rotterdam.

The Australian delegates are interested in how the Netherlands has organised its logistics. As the 'Gateway to Europe', the Netherlands – with Rotterdam being the largest European port – has developed extended infrastructure to support its logistics streams, both for freight with the Netherlands as a final destination as well as freight that is transported through to other parts of Europe via intermodal hubs such as Venlo.

Australia is currently developing various intermodal hubs and new airports and is modernising several ports. The visit underlines the strong ties between Australia and the Netherlands and created valuable relations for future bilateral cooperation.
