BMT Group subsidiaries BMT Asia Pacific and BMT Nigel Gee have been appointed to provide vessel design consultancy services to the Hong Kong government.
 
The contract, awarded by the Hong Kong Marine Department following a competitive tender, includes provision for the design and specification of up to seven new composite patrol vessels for the Harbor Patrol Section.
 
BMT said its experience in the design and specification of a wide variety of craft (GRP/steel/aluminum alloy) and hullforms (monohull/catamaran) delivered over the last decade was key in securing the contract, explaining that its project team members bring in-depth knowledge and expertise in ship design, naval architecture and marine engineering to support the multidisciplinary nature of this project. 
 
Richard Colwill, Project Director and Managing Director of BMT Asia Pacific in Hong Kong commented, “We’re very pleased to be working with the Hong Kong Marine Department and our U.K. based colleagues again on a contract where we can assist in the renewal of a key section of the local fleet, and one pivotal to managing marine safety within our busy port areas.”
 
John Bonafoux, Managing Director of BMT Nigel Gee  added, “We are also delighted to have won this contract in conjunction with our sister company in Hong Kong and look forward to applying our expertise in high performance, composite vessel design for this important HKMD requirement.”
