As part of a larger plan to revitalise the area and make the Singapore River a world-class tourist destination, a new transport system operating along the length of the Singapore River from Kim Seng to the new Merlion Park was introduced to serve both locals and tourists.
The purpose of BMT's involvement was to determine the maximum number of craft that can operate in the Singapore River with a high degree of safety during the day and night taking into consideration all the activities that may be conducted in the river. A risk study included:
Sustainability - The project was focused on managing risk & safety – essential elements if the waterways leading to these developments are to act as a long-term sustainable transport mode.
Innovation - BMT’s Dynamic Marine Traffic Simulation models were applied to examine risks for operations within the canal.
Added Value - A key issue identified in the study, but not in the original brief, was the lack of life saving or access points to the river and recommendations were made to improve safety for all users.
In view of changes made to Singapore QRA Guidelines (implemented in 2016), a Dutch storage major with a brown-field facility whereby the risk from the facility has not been assessed engaged BMT to carry out a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) in accordance to both existing and new Singapore QRA Guidelines for the Terminal.
BMT was invited by a global financing and development institution to conduct a cumulative risk assessment of its three major industrial facilities in Nansha, Pearl River Delta and to review its industrial hazard risk management system.
A modular floating platform, currently the world's largest floating stage (2018) was constructed and moored at site in Marina Basin in Singapore. The multi-purpose structure has been the site for important cultural events since 2007, bringing a marine solution to land-based challenges.
A floating platform of dimensions 200m x 19.2m was constructed and moored at site in Semakau Landfill, Singapore. The floating platform is planned to be used for dumping incinerated ash at the Semakau landfill.
