Description

Australia Awards Fellowships for Capacity Building for Coal and LNG Infrastructure Development in Bangladesh

Led by Associate Professor Quamrul Alam and Professor Julie Wolfram Cox from Department of Management at Monash Business School, this is the fifth Australian Awards Fellowship program for Bangladesh officials. This year, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) are funding Bangladesh officials from the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources.

Associate Professor Quamrul Alam and Professor Julie Wolfram Cox research publications have wider economic and social value that attracted attentions of Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The Department of Management has won five DFAT grants and administered leadership and capacity development programs for Bangladesh public servants and the technical managerial personnel of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources. Since 2009, 125 public servants attended capacity building programs administered by Monash Business School.

At present Bangladesh does not have the required skills for development and management of such power and energy sector infrastructure. The Fellowship program has been designed to enhance Bangladesh’s capability to manage coal port and LNG infrastructure that will increase efficiency and productivity of the sector, creating opportunities for investment. This Fellowship program will work as a catalyst to promote economic growth, reduce poverty, attract FDI, and facilitate trade through enhancing the capability of this sector.

During the four weeks field research the researchers will visit a coal port, coal terminal, coal shipment, ash management process and LNG infrastructure management practices. They will also visit an LNG terminal, LNG storage, LNG processing trains and LNG loading facilities to observe and learn LNG total value chain management practices, operational best practices, repair and maintenance regime and OHS procedures. The interactions with industry experts and researchers will assist the fellows to gather information about the modernisation of the coal and LNG value chain in Australia and learn how the environmental, social and risks related issues have been addressed in Australia. This interactive training program will produce a broad base of knowledge likely to form the basis of the solution to current or future problems of Bangladesh power and energy sector infrastructures.
