BMT Asia Pacific, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, the leading international design, engineering and risk management consultancy today announced that it has secured a major port study – The Strategic Development Plan for Hong Kong Port 2030 (HKP2030) commissioned by the Hong Kong Transport and Housing Bureau. The Study is a key element in guiding port development policy and planning investment for future port facilities and related infrastructure.
BMT Asia Pacific is leading a consortium of port specialists to formulate a sustainable development strategy for HKP, taking into account the forecasts of market demand and productivity and capacity of port facilities looking up to 30 years ahead, and the competitiveness of the HKP in the regional context; underpinned by extensive consultation with all the key industry stakeholders, i.e., terminal operators, midstream operators, shipping lines, river trade operators, truck operators, shippers (incl. 3PLs) and consignees.
Dr Simon Su, Director of BMT Asia Pacific, comments: “BMT Asia Pacific is delighted to be awarded such a high profile and significant study especially as HKP is a defining feature of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s economy. With improved port capacity and quality available at Shenzhen and other Pearl River Delta ports, HKP will need to improve and evolve in order to increase market share in future years. BMT Asia Pacific will use its knowledge and 25 years of experience working in Hong Kong to ensure that HKP2030 delivers.”
The final report will be delivered in July 2012.
