This third edition of the handbook on modern design and construction of port and harbour engineering will, in my opinion, give harbour colleagues around the world an opportunity not only to study the Norwegian practices and solutions in the design and construction from traditional berth structures to complicated oil and gas berths, but also gain knowledge and a general understanding of the design of port and harbour constructions. The invitation to write the foreword to the third edition of the Port Designer's Handbook, which has been updated to cover new port developments and standards, provides the ideal opportunity to express my belief that harbour experts around the world should write and share their knowledge and information more frequently with their colleagues. This new edition will contribute and make available new information based on the author's long experience and knowledge to others within the harbour and port sector, so that the field can continue to develop.
