BMT to support the Western Australian, Department of Transport’s Maintenance Dredging Program

Driving environmental value and risk-informed decision making will ensure that maintenance dredging continues into the future to sustain the Port’s and Ocean’s critical depths. BMT’s premier reputation in delivering Long‐Term Dredge Management Plans, Ocean Disposal activities and Long-Term Asset Management Programs in Australasia, and across the Asia Pacific region, have been delivered over the lifetime of several Sea Dumping Permits (SDP) issued by the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy.

BMT welcomes confirmation by the Western Australian Government that it has successfully bid to provide consultancy services to the State’s Maintenance Dredging Program.

BMT brings over 20-years of innovative solutions and commitment to the maintenance of Western Australian’s coastal facilities and protection of its pristine marine environment.

Shane Amaratunga, Portfolio Managing Director, Environment & Infrastructure at BMT commented:

“BMT has previously been contracted for project management of the maintenance dredging programs and we are thrilled to remain the trusted partner for our expertise and experience in this very niche field. As we see an increase in the use of these waterways, the maintenance dredging works delivered by the Department of Transport are vital for providing safe navigation and access for both public users and commercial fleets. We will continue to provide strategic advice to grow BMT’s regional portfolio, as we look to expand our footprint in the Ports, Coastal and Ocean infrastructure industries."

Dr Philip Haines, Managing Director Environment, Australia at BMT commented: 

“We look forward to supporting the Department of Transport and key stakeholders to deliver and influence sustainable and solution-based outcomes.”
