BMT provides advice on management systems for safe and efficient port operations, enabling our customers to maintain marine risk at acceptable levels and optimise operations.
The goal of all marine studies carried out by BMT is to ensure that ships have safe and efficient access to a given port and are not subject to undue delays or risk. Operational limits on wind, current and waves can be set, as can such items as safe passing speeds near moored ships at jetties, tug usage and approach channel or swinging area design. The direct benefits of our marine studies include:
Our specialist modelling and design tools can help you optimise limits on wind, current and waves as well as set safe passing speeds and swinging areas. To support this, BMT uses a powerful design tools, including our own, globally recognised REMBRANDT software for navigation simulations.
Our combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
Following a launch of an initiative to improve transport safety in Tonga, BMT was invited by World Bank to identify what further assistance was needed to improve the ongoing safe operations of inter island shipping in Tonga.
The River Thames was a historically critical link for London as a commercial port. Increasingly the focus has been on tourist craft , raising increasing concern over the level and nature of vessels that could be safely accommodated on the Thames.
Cruise Bay is Singapore's busiest marine passenger hub, which will see an increase in the movements of cruise ships within Cruise Bay and possibly lead to the use of Cruise Bay by ever larger cruise ships. BMT was commissioned to address these issues.
BMT carried out desktop ship-handling simulation to determine the impact of the marine environment on different types of vessels as they arrived and departed from the Sinopec West Point terminal. The simulations were done on BMT's proprietary desktop simulator, BMT REMBRANDT, using simulated hydrodynamic currents of the area.
