BMT has chosen its Singapore office as the hub to help strengthen its regional presence in Asia to support existing customers, exploit new venture opportunities and assist regional partners.
Singapore forms the maritime heart in Asia, and BMT is looking to replicate global success in the region. BMT in Asia continues to strengthen its engineering and consultancy services for Offshore, Marine and Coastal Structures, both fixed and floating, Marine Navigational Safety and Emergency Response Risk Assessments, Investment and Advisory Support Services.
The new regional hub will support existing customer expansion and align technology. Institutional readiness as shipbuilding companies, ship owners, and operators look for a next-generation consulting partner to help them scale internationally and deliver superior value. BMT is recognised as the ‘tech behind the tech’, having launched maritime innovations including TUFLOW, REMBRANDT, SARIS, BMT DEEP, MATE, several Digital Data Transformation platforms, and proprietary machine-learning risk modelling applications.
BMT is already partnering with shipbuilders in countries like Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia and South Korea and is simultaneously seeking to strengthen and expand partnerships in the region. In addition, through the pursuit of new venture opportunities, BMT will seek to build on its regional brand presence and cultivate growth and value in its emerging portfolios.
“I am thrilled that during this time of global uncertainty we are able to invest in a market that we know drives industry modernisation. Our Singapore hub will strengthen our domestic and emerging portfolios.
“We pride ourselves on the role that we have played in the maritime technology revolution to date, and with the expansion of our investment in Singapore, we will extend our reach and continue to offer our superior level of service to existing customers, while we explore new ventures. Singapore is an obvious choice - it means we can take an active part in the maritime ecosystem there.”
“Being on the ground and a part of Singapore’s growing maritime ecosystem is critical to servicing our customers and to the further development of our emerging portfolio. This local presence combined with our global specialist advice will provide a unique offering to this growing market, and to the world’s most important commodity and cargo transit hub.”
