Date, Time & Venue

Virtual Mainland Site Visit – Live streaming


Organized by Civil Division, HKIE


Virtual Site Visit Arrangement

In view of the uncertainties brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in Hong Kong, we had no choice but to postpone a number of mainland site visits which were scheduled earlier in the year. To maintain our continuous quality learning opportunities to our members and our main theme of ‘Nurturing the Young’ while ensuring safety and wellness of all, we would like to launch an innovative initiative “virtual mainland site visit”.

Through video streaming with LIVE commentary, virtual site visit provides the participants with the ability to view the venue on their computer or mobile device at a safe place. Instead of simply looking at photos, the participants will be given a full walk-through tour. It also allows interactive communication between participants and the site host with a live Q&A session. Your usual support and enrolment is highly encouraged.



Programme Highlights

In response to the Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+ Report and to support the increased use of natural gas for power generation in Hong Kong, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP Power) and The Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd (HK Electric) have identified that the development of an offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Hong Kong using Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) technology presents a viable additional gas supply option that will provide energy security through access to competitive gas supplies from world markets.

One of the major scopes of the Project involves the construction and operation of one double berth jetty, which is located in the southern waters of Hong Kong to the east of Soko Islands, with mooring facilities for the FSRU vessel and LNG carriers. The jetty comprises 6 nos. mooring dolphins and 3 nos. breasting dolphins. The sub-structural works for each dolphin comprising the structural steel jacket structure and 1.83m diameter steel tubular piles which will be installed using hydraulic hammer at the corners of a steel jacket structure.

The fabrication of the jetty structural steel jackets and piles are carried out in the Qingdao steel fabrication yard. This virtual site visit will introduce the whole fabrication process of steel jacket and piles, i.e. from steel cutting, steel rolling till the assembly of steel panels and load out.
