In order to manage and mitigate risks during the operation and maintenance of ports, terminals and harbours, BMT provides a wide range of services that draw on our global expertise.

Risk Assessment

BMT not only studies the external and internal risk factors of marine facilities but also their consequences. We look at what impact a project's vulnerability and risk may have on businesses or countries and advise on the most appropriate ways of mitigating that risk. Our experts review navigational issues, search and rescue and the port marine safety code, as well as assessing and auditing safety management systems.

These services are provided by our specialist operating companies in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and the UK.

Navigation Simulation and Consultancy

From full-scale trials, free running and captive model tests, to mathematical prediction and simulation, BMT has many years' experience in all aspects of ship manoeuvring.

Our real time ship-handling and manoeuvring simulator, Rembrandt, is used by pilots, ship operators, naval architects and port authorities to enable effective training, and to evaluate harbour layouts at the planning stage.

The system has a wide range of high fidelity ship models which can interact with varied environmental conditions and tugs to produce realistic vessel behaviour.

These services are provided by our specialist operating companies in Australia, India, The Netherlands, Singapore, and the UK.

Mooring Analysis

Designing and analysing mooring systems is an essential part of port planning.  At BMT we have extensive experience in this area and in evaluating the feasibility of ship-to-ship and ship-to-structure operations. Our comprehensive consultancy services range from providing expert advice, to a detailed dynamic mooring analysis using specialist software.

These services are provided by our specialist operating companies in India, The Netherlands, Singapore, and the UK.

Port Security

Security is an increasingly important issue and BMT aims to provide the latest thinking and most cost-effective solutions, supported by our worldwide expertise and independent status. Our objective is to identify and support the delivery of sustainable and efficient solutions that will work throughout a port or terminal's lifetime.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.
