BMT undertakes business planning for new UAE port

BMT undertakes business planning for new UAE port

Abu Dhabi: BMT Maritime Consultants Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Ltd, has completed the business planning for a major new offshore port development near Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The work undertaken by BMT on behalf of the Mubadala Development Company will be used as a basis for the implementation of the US$2.5bn multi-user port and adjacent 9,900 hectare industrial zone. The new port and industrial zone is required to replace the existing Mina Zayed Port in Abu Dhabi, which is constrained by the surrounding city development and problems with land transport access. The current port activities will be relocated to the new facilities when the new Khalifa port becomes operational in 2010. It is envisaged the new port will be operational by 2010.  [20/09/06]
