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.
This was particularly due to the high tidal range that sees the bridge access become more significantly constrained as the tide falls.
BMT was appointed to undertake a study on the River Thames's vessel traffic in Central London. This included:
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.
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.
SkyPier at Hong Kong International Airport provides speedy ferry service for transfer passengers. BMT was responsible for the ferry pontoons that act as the principal interface for passengers and baggage.
BMT prepared a business plan for the new offshore multi-user port development in Abu Dhabi, involving staged construction of facilities from initial operations in 2010 to full development by 2028.
