Marine infrastructure

Independent technical expertise for efficient ports, terminals and waterways

New ports and terminals, waterways and other marine infrastructures are milestones for macroeconomic development. Planning, designing and operating of marine infrastructure projects are complex and require understanding of the shipping and maritime sector, expertise in civil construction and custom engineered structures on the waterfront and in the water. 

Availability and quality of services towards customers need to be continuously improved: Smooth port operations with reduced harbour idle times require ongoing upgrades of a port’s physical and digital infrastructure, resulting in state-of-the-art operations.
