Introducing VRCA's Michael Harvey


The former Chief Executive Officer of Rio Tinto Marine, Michael Harvey has taken over the wheel at Victorian Regional Channels Authority. With trade at the Port of Geelong forecast to double by 2035, the handing back of management of Victoria's regional channels to the VRCA on 1 July and the spectre of a second container port for the state looming once again, Michael just might need all of his extensive experience of ports and channels systems across the globe.

Dropping by Channels House for a chat, we spoke to Micheal about the state of the global shipping industry, the challenges and opportunities that expansion of the Port's yearly trade will bring and, of course, really, really big ships and how to get them safely in and out of our channel.
