South Channel beacons

Vulnerability analysis

The South Channel Beacons guide shipping traffic in from the Rip along the Southern Channel near the Mornington Peninsula into the deep waters in the centre of Port Philip Bay. There are more than 20 beacon structures in the South Channel fixed to large steel piles and mounted with navigation aids for day and night time navigation.

AW Maritime has been engaged to compile the key structural data for all beacons, assess the wind, wave and current loading on the structures, complete vulnerability analysis and assist the Port of Melbourne with its ongoing management of their key assets.
