Malaysia: BMT Delivers Concept Jetty Design for RAPID Project

BMT Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has completed a concept design for the Material Off Loading Facility (MOLF) at Petroliam Nasional Berhad’s proposed Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) complex in southeast Johor, Malaysia.

Working in partnership with Technip, the front-end engineering design (FEED) contractor for the project, BMT provided a concept design for a temporary, heavy lift jetty. This jetty will be an integral part of the infrastructure needed to realise the RAPID project.

Per Cato Roed, Managing Director of BMT Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, said: “Given that heavy lifts of specialised modules and equipment will be performed at the jetty during the RAPID project construction phase, we needed to carefully consider the customer’s requirements and ensure an optimum layout. Taking the temporary nature of the jetty into consideration, it was also important for us to optimise the design in relation to several dimensions, notably sedimentation and maintenance dredging requirements.”

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.

Marine studies utilising BMT’s navigation simulation tool, REMBRANDT, were also completed to better understand the possible operational limits associated with the ships coming into the port and therefore the impact this would have on the jetty design.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
