Our dredging studies consider all aspects of the required works, ranging from the ground conditions and the prevailing weather and ocean conditions to selecting a suitable plant to assess the optimal approach for completing each project.
We have experience in a wide range of dredging methods, dredging related issues and complimentary services.
Our understanding of the metocean processes and conditions that influence the design and operation of marine infrastructure is based on extensive experience in the industry.
We use in-house historical metocean databases, numerical modelling, and analysis to inform the criteria for operations, preliminary design, front end engineering design, mooring layout design and breakwater and terminal design, including coastal erosion modelling and coastline evolution under the influence of shoreline recession and sea-level rise.
Our experience in managing the whole life cycle of dredging projects mean that we are best placed to assist our clients in ensuring timely execution and best value for money from the engineering design, procurement, execution and maintenance phase.
Silting at terminals requires regular dredging to maintain navigation channels.
We provide an integrated approach to managing capital and maintenance dredging, reclamation, and sand bypassing.
We study the risks associated with marine facilities and use our findings to advise on the best ways to mitigate for any potential consequences.
We provide vital port-related engineering services, including complete project management from conception to completion for marine, port, and coastal projects.
We offer an integrated approach that enables total solutions design for urban, peri-urban and catchment systems. We have a detailed understanding of water quality and behaviour in a whole catchment context.
Environmental risk assessment of siltation dredging and dredge material management.
Using AIS-based methodology, BMT mapped out marine traffic scenarios that have enabled clients to plan future dredging activity safety & efficiently.
BMT was engaged by KPA to provide site supervision, technical and management services for the delivery of the Broome Channel Optimisation project to enable port access for large shipping and cruise vessels.
Ports North engaged BMT to provide specialist engineering design of the dredging and disposal site and environmental advice for the EIS process. Aproximately 800,000 cubic metres of material was removed and pumped onshore.
Fremantle Ports trusted BMT to oversee marine monitoring of major dredging and reclamation works, in full public view, for Western Australia's largest metropolitan port.
BMT was engaged by the Bunbury Port Authority in 2004 and again in 2007 to manage maintenance dredging works undertaken in the harbour and channel areas of the Port.
BMT has worked to provide an integrated service for the management of the DoT's Maintenance Dredging Program since 2000.
BMT delivered the full range of project management, from the drafting of tender documents to on-site supervision.
