The International Cranes and Transport Asia Pacific (CATAP) conference took place to great acclaim in September 2014.
The International Cranes and Transport Asia Pacific conference on Tuesday 30 September 2014 brought together international experts and senior executives from the region to focus on the key issues facing the industry, including heavy lift planning, safety practices, regulations, operator training, tower cranes and the special demands of working in the oil and gas sector.
Keynote speaker was Rajiv Biswas, chief economist at IHS, who set the scene with an economic roundup and outlook for the region. Following Biswas with a focus on safety in Singapore’s crane industry was Mohamed Abdul Akbar Bin Mohamed Abdul Kader, chairman of the National Crane Safety Taskforce in Singapore. Another highlight was an insight into Burma’s developing crane market from Han Soe Kyaw who runs Two Elephant Crane & Forklift, the country’s largest crane rental company.
A full report appeared in the November issue of International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine.
