BMT carried out conceptual engineering studies for a Marine Off-Loading Facility (MOLF) for Petroliam National Berhad (PETRONAS), required in order to receive and offload the EPCC Contractor’s construction goods and project cargo during construction phase of the Refinery And Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Malaysia.
As a part of the study, navigational simulations were conducted to determine the effect of the channel design and the different environmental conditions on movement of the design ships calling at the MOLF facility.
BMT carried out 16 different navigation scenarios. The simulated scenarios assessed safe approach, berthing and unberthing of the design ships to and from the berths at the MOLF terminal.
The simulations were done on BMT’s proprietary desktop simulator, BMT REMBRANDT, using simulated hydrodynamic currents of the area.
Scope of work for the simulation was as follows:
BMT carried out the conceptual design of the MOLF, covering geotechnical and marine structural engineering design activities, as well as a number of specialist studies and surveys needed for adequately evaluating the options available.
BMT has been providing engineering support to Muhibbah Engineering Bhd for the LNG Regasification Facilities Project, commencing from FEED for the LNG regas unit and the Island berth.
BMT carried out desktop ship-handling simulation to determine the impact of the marine environment on different types of vessels as they arrived and departed from the Sinopec West Point terminal. The simulations were done on BMT's proprietary desktop simulator, BMT REMBRANDT, using simulated hydrodynamic currents of the area.
BMT was appointed by Vopak Yang Pu, Hainan Storage Terminal to provide consultancy services on all matters relating to the marine facilities for the terminal development.
