BMT was commissioned by Pilbara Port Authority (PPA) to establish the metocean design criteria at various mooring locations in and around the Port of Dampier. The metocean design criteria study consists of developing a robust atmospheric and oceanographic modeling framework capable of producing a large number of realistic wind, wave, current and water level scenarios and extreme event conditions that can be subsequently analysed to establish suitable design conditions.
The first stage of the study encompassed establishing regional scale wave and hydrodynamic models which are capable of simulating generation of cyclonic waves and currents around the Port of Dampier.
BMT achieved outstanding calibration at several measured data points demonstrating the suitability of the adopted modeling frame work for characterizing the extreme oceanographic conditions.
The scope of work encompassed a high level review of the potential development sites with BMT working on the study which included developing the cyclonic climatology and generate synthetic cyclonic data base equivalent to 1000 years.
The calibrated modeling frameworks in stage one was used to carry out a comprehensive Monte Carlo Simulation establishing the cyclonic design criteria at nine different mooring sites.
As part of a government scheme to increase agricultural exports from a Vietnam province, BMT was appointed to help the client examine existing and planned port facilities and transport networks; estimat the potential cargo demand; establish possible strategic development options corresponding to the economic and competitive framework and highlighted possible risks to each option.
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.
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.
BMT assisted in the development of offshore oil facilities on Pulau Busing Island, off Singapore's busy south coast. The work was motivated by the increasing costs of oil, and the BMT team was in place to assess a total engineering design and project management consultancy for four new jetties.
