BMT Group to Assist Nicaragua Canal Developers

BMT Asia Pacific and BMT ARGOSS, subsidiaries of BMT Group Ltd, have been appointed by Hong Kong Nicaragua Canal Development Group (HKND) to undertake a series of marine and port assessments for the Nicaragua Canal.

BMT will assist the development and validation of the Canal’s design and operations through a structured framework.

“Our Study will seek to articulate a solution that minimizes canal excavation while ensuring adequate canal capacity and safety,” said Dr Richard D Colwill, Managing Director at BMT Asia Pacific.

“A crucial part of that solution involves sophisticated navigation and transport simulation, which will set the basis for identifying a design that balances excavation CAPEX with operational safety, efficiency and capacity.”

Navigation simulators recreate typical scenarios that a ship master would experience and BMT’s proprietary simulator, REMBRANDT, is widely recognized by the shipping sector for its accurate and detailed recreations of the navigation environment.

Through REMBRANDT, BMT will provide early and decisive insight on potential marine constraints, enabling us to identify appropriate mitigation and optimization measures – be it physical or operational in nature,” Captain Paul Morter of BMT ARGOSS said.

In addition to carrying out operational assessments, BMT will also update the business case for the Canal’s Pacific and Caribbean ocean ports.

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.
