Royal Haskoning DHV to Take Part in Payra Port Master Plan

Royal Haskoning DHV, together with Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), have been selected to develop detailed master plan for the overall development of the Payra Port.

Payra Port will be the country’s 3rd and largest sea port and is being designed to add much needed port capacity to Bangladesh to allow larger vessels to call at the facility.

Bangladesh imported approximately $52.84 billion of goods in 2017 and the new deep sea port will enable the country to accommodate large draught vessels directly rather than requiring transhipment from Singapore or Colombo – a development which will deliver major savings in transit times and costs for both import and export.

Eric Smit, Business Development Director Maritime at Royal HaskoningDHV, said of the multi-million euro contract: “We are honored to be working on the development of this national priority project, together with the Bangladesh University of Engineering Technology. It’s rare to see green field port developments of this scale, and the new port will help the country achieve its growth ambitions and create greater economic growth, more jobs and new opportunities.”

The first phase of the green field port development comprises capital dredging works, which will be carried out by Belgium’s Jan de Nul under a PPP framework agreement, and the creation of two new port terminals.

The port, which is scheduled to be operational by 2022, will also have strong rail, road and waterway links to the capital, Dhaka.

As master planning consultant, Royal HaskoningDHV will integrate the latest Smart Port thinking to drive efficiency and high performance.

Smart ports embrace technology at every stage, from the design and maintenance of structures and assets, to ensuring smooth performance, energy efficiency and minimal downtime.
