Australia: BMT WBM Secures Six Year Deal with Port of Brisbane

BMT WBM, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, the leading international maritime design, environmental and engineering consultancy, has announced that it has recently secured a six year contract to provide all environmental monitoring services to the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL), following a competitive tender process.

BMT’s extensive experience, reputation and innovative approach were highly regarded by PBPL during the tender evaluation phase.

Located at Fisherman Islands, the Port of Brisbane is situated at the mouth of the Brisbane River and on the western foreshore of Moreton Bay, Queensland. As Australia’s fastest growing multi-cargo port and Queensland’s largest general cargo port, the Port of Brisbane handles over $50 billion in annual trade, which is equivalent to approximately 20% of Queensland’s gross state product.

Port of Brisbane 2BMT’s services will focus on addressing the primary aims of PBPL’s environmental monitoring program. This includes assessment of the health and long term trends in the condition of the local environment to determine potential impacts to the port and surrounding marine habitats, and providing information that supports and informs port planning and management activities.

Monitoring to be undertaken by BMT includes sediment sampling and analysis; water quality; dredge turbidity; groundwater; mangrove health; seagrass health; and seawall flora and fauna.

Tony McAlister, Managing Director of BMT WBM, comments: “This is a fantastic achievement for the team and builds on the extensive amount of environmental work we have done previously for PBPL and more generally across the wider Moreton Bay region. We are delighted to be given the opportunity to continue working closely with PBPL to deliver a thorough, defensible and technically robust monitoring program.”
