Research Program

RP5 Sustainable Offshore Developments (SOD) Program

Project Leader

Peggy Chen, University of Tasmania

Project ID



The development of new and co-located offshore/high energy aquaculture and energy businesses requires an integrated approach to managing their supply chains. This research project, through systematic literature review and applying the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model, will develop a general framework for mapping supply chains within the Blue Economy (BE), including this integrated chain.

It will also chart future directions for overcoming potential logistics challenges and inform further research in developing an integrated and planned approach to managing supply chains. BE companies will better appreciate patterns in customer demand and evidence of sustainable practices, enabling production optimisation and maximising revenue.
