an arctic algorithm for basic marine infrastructure
An “Arctic Algorithm” for Basic Marine Infrastructure

Algorithm /al-guh-ri-th'm/ noun a set of simple instructions that combine to accomplish a task.

big needs need realism
Big Needs Need Realism
  • “… build it and they will come” strategies don’t work for intermodal supply chains and infrastructure development.
  • Benefits of single mega projects must be balanced against the greatest good for the great number in the short and medium term…
  • Learn from unsuccessful examples in south of poor project planning driven by politics, not demand and priorities…
  • We need to focus on customer demands, identify needs and set priorities.
common conditions
Common Conditions

Weather: Extreme climates, winds, currents, and short navigational season

Communities: Remote, lack of marine infrastructure, no safe or secure work areas, customer dependence on marine transportation for re-supply.

Mining: generally remote and distant from population centres.

Government Contracting: Services are regulated monopolies by way of restrictive winner take all regional contract awards… limits customer choice, reduces competition and increases costs.

Tides: many communities have high tides resulting in operational delays.

Navigational Charts: Inadequate hydrographic navigational charts and data - Approximately 10% of the Canadian Arctic is adequately charted.

Mooring Buoys and Navigational Aids: Deficiency exists – few Navaids and 1 Mooring Buoy in Nunavut.

  • Improve collaboration between levels of government, and this includes an INFRASTRUCTURE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
  • Open, fair, transparent procurement process which respects customer choice and promoting competition
