Adani Yangon International Terminal Company Limited (AYITCL), part of India’s largest port developer, had plans to build a new container terminal in Myanmar. The Ahlone International Port Terminal 2 would be a substantial berthing structure with a container stacking yard of approximately 20 hectares, but due to the lack of site-specific data, the company needed the services of consultants of impeccable international repute. Thankfully our expert knowledge of site conditions, access to local engineering contractors and expert ability to deliver a Eurocode-compliant design fit the bill perfectly.
By making the most of the strengths of our dedicated teams in India and Singapore, we were not only able to take advantage of our long-standing relationship with AYITCL and our experience with their complex design projects but were also able to offer a wealth of experience in delivering projects in Myanmar specifically in the vicinity of the proposed site.
This winning combination saw our experts in India taking on the lead role and delivering essential project management services, preparing drawings, design basis reports and calculations, scheduling quantities and tender documents. Similarly, our Singapore team carried out a high-level review of all deliverables to ensure complete compliance with Eurocodes, construction practices and the prevailing construction contract conditions in Myanmar.
The project was successful and executed on schedule thanks to our clear understanding of the scope from the outset, our sharing of technical knowledge, our regular team interaction and highly co-ordinated designs. It’s a testament to how our international teams collaborate and coordinate to deliver world-class results to our customers around the globe.
