The project comprised the construction of a commercial port, ship repair yard, associated landside infrastructure and capital dredging works.

Based at a remote greenfield site, the port development project presented the engineering team with a range of challenges including:
RPS worked closely with the client team in the early stages of the project to ensure the chosen solution met the needs cost-effectively while addressing key local physical constraints.
A key aspect was optimising the 5 km dredged approach channel. RPS undertook a significant computational hydraulic model to ensure channel alignment and encouraged ‘self-flushing’ during the monsoon season to minimise maintenance dredging whilst maintaining navigational safety.
The adoption of an optimised access road also assisted in minimising the extent of excavations required while ensuring efficient vehicle access on steep slopes.
