Operational Overview

Ports and Terminals

From conception to operation, BMT helps customers assess, finance, develop and maintain port facilities.


This was another strong year for BMT in the ports and terminals markets.


Infrastructure developments in Indonesia and Malaysia continued to provide collaborative opportunities, supported by BMT's innovative approach, strong track record and independent status. The marine planning market remained buoyant on the back of a significant number of civil infrastructure and reclamation projects in Hong Kong and Singapore. In India, we captured a number of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) assignments. This included the detailed design for a LNG terminal facility in Gujarat, India, providing further evidence of our growing reputation for supporting new LNG infrastructure developments. This is leading to further opportunities across India, Singapore, Malaysia and Western Australia.


Although lower coal prices caused a slowdown for related infrastructure development in Western Australia, we have started to engage with companies in the region, as well as Europe, which are pursuing investments in east African mineral resource projects and LNG export terminals. The value of our expertise was demonstrated throughout the year as we advised on the environmental, financial, design and safety aspects of port and terminals planning, building and maintenance. One example was a unique training programme BMT developed to assist Port Engineers in maximising investment in the repair and sustainment of their maritime assets.


Outlook

We believe that our strong track record and high-value insight can provide significant opportunities, particularly in Asia. Across the sector, we will continue to be responsive to changing markets and collaborate with strategic partners to ensure further success in the year ahead

    BMT developed a unique training programme to assist Port Engineers with maximising investment in the repair and sustainment of their maritime assets. The course looks at everything from the preparation for a maintenance period, engineering administration, to the fundamentals of project management and beyond.

    BMT provided training for pilots of Adani's Hazira Port using our REMBRANDT software. Pilots used the tool to safely maneouvre vessels in the approach channel and berths, under the combined effects of current, wind, tide and swell.
