Terminals and facilities

We can provide the full range of services necessary to deliver modern and efficient port terminals, from accommodating the latest generation of cargo ships to the efficient handling and dispatch of cargo through the port and onwards into the port hinterland.

Our experience encompasses the planning, engineering and construction supervision of container terminals, ro-ro terminals, and import and export terminals for dry bulk (coal, ore, grain) and liquid bulk (oil and gas), and also cruise and ferry terminals. Our port engineers work closely with other disciplines within Mott MacDonald to ensure a fully efficient and logistical transfer system from ship to storage yard or terminal, and to facilitate efficient intermodal transfer to road or rail.

Some of our key services include:

  • Berth sizing and layout
  • Ship-to-shore cranes, loaders and unloaders
  • Planning of onshore areas
  • Equipment selection and layouts
  • Stacking and storage areas
  • Drainage and utility services
  • Security and IT facilities
  • Environmental impact assessment
  • Road and rail sidings and transfer facilities

Recent terminal projects include:

  • Nacala Port, Mozambique – detailed design for coal export terminal
  • Southampton, UK – detailed design and advice during construction for upgrade of Container Terminal
  • Port of Ngqura, South Africa – planning and detailed design for dry cargo terminal and liquid bulk terminals
  • Heritage Wharf, Bermuda – detailed design and construction supervision for the upgrade to the cruise Terminal

Other port facilities for which we have provided planning design and construction services have included small craft harbours, fishing ports, shipyards, fabrication yards to support offshore industries, and marinas.
