As vessel sizes steadily increase, so too do the pressures exerted on port infrastructure and ports around the world need to proactively work to manage these increased vessel sizes. We’ve selected the work we did with the National Grid LNG terminal at the Isle of Grain in England to showcase how industry can work together to proactively tackle these potential issues. The case study features the upgrade of jetty ten and the construction of a new jetty at the terminal. This enables the new breed of large LNG vessels to berth and discharge or load contents to and from the facility, thus improving the production rate at the plant. See Part One of the case study here and keep an eye on our YouTube site for the next instalments.
