The import of natural gas (NG) in Cyprus is a project of national, cross-border and European importance and for this reason it has been included in the Projects of Common Interest of the EU.
This unique project helps reduce the effects of the energy isolation of Cyprus and help it connect to the trans-European energy and transport networks.
As part of the wider infrastructure design challenges, ETYFA required support identifying risks and mitigations associated with the unique and complex undertaking.
BMT, in collaboration with Lloyds Register, was tasked with providing local BMT REMBRANDT simulation support to the navigation risk assessment and the wider engineering processes for the LNG import terminal.
A portable BMT REMBRANDT simulator was deployed locally to enable all Cypriot stakeholders, including local pilots, design engineers and maritime authorities to participate in and witness first hand navigation assessments in the form of interactive workshops.
Additionally a number of navigation simulation videos were produced to support the wider stakeholder engagement.
Our navigation risk assessments successfully supported stakeholder engagement and the wider understanding of mitigations.
Construction of the import terminal started in July 2020 with expected completion in July 2023.
A number of terminal feasibility studies were supported using the STATSCo in-house BMT REMBRANDT system, as well as incident reconstructions to provide rapid insight.

BMT REMBRANDT was chosen by Harland and Wolff and utilised its latest S-100 compliant ENC platform, developed in close cooperation with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office(UKHO).
The US National Transportation Safety Board's Office of Marine Safety has installed BMT's fully certified Rembrandt navigation simulator system.
