Port operations and economics, transformed

We’re transforming how clients measure success on port and marine terminal projects. Fusing global expertise with local delivery, means we can offer experience in master planning and feasibility studies, engineering, environmental and sustainability services, project management, and construction supervision—regardless of location or complexity. From enhancing profitability and security, to integrating automated systems, we’re focused on the future and your bottom-line.

Our ports and marine terminals practice is not just about designing port infrastructure – it’s about understanding our client’s operations, and the overall shipping industry and supply chain, to enhance their customer’s experience.

The Panama Canal Expansion - Engineering Marvel

Our team led the design of two Neo-Panamax lock complexes, including filling/emptying systems, lock gates, all mechanical, electrical, fire protection, SCADA control systems, and associated navigation features. Using state-of-the-art seismic analysis engineers developed lock-wall configurations that met stringent seismic criteria at minimum cost and provided flood protection of the facilities and the surrounding infrastructure. The new locks can accommodate a 14,000 TEU container ship—triple the capacity of previous Panamax vessels. Read More
