Terminals and Facilities

Terminals and Facilities for the Changing Future

The geopolitical landscape, automation, technological advances, changing regulations and the sustainability agenda are necessitating profound changes in port and harbours ecosystems. At a strategic level, ports and terminals will need to make important investment decisions in this disrupted environment, whether channel widening, berthing extensions, new bunkering infrastructure or investigating new revenue streams such as renewable energy.  At ByrneLooby, our marine experts provide a comprehensive suite of services that deliver modern and efficient terminals and facilities.

It is essential that new and upgraded terminals and facilities are planned and engineered to operate safely, efficiently and economically, delivering value for owners and clients with the ability to meet operational demands and sustainability goals for the future.  Our engineers have the required resources, knowledge and experience to meet client project objectives and challenges.  Our project experience has delivered infrastructures such as harbour widening, land storage areas, mooring systems, terminals, additional berthing structures to accommodate larger vessels, feasibility studies for new business streams and asset optimisation for operational efficiency.

We deliver challenging, complex projects with integrated transportation, including rail, road, seaports and airports.  As a multidisciplinary consultancy, our terminals and facilities engineers work in tandem with our in-house experts, such as our geotechnical teams to benefit design, cost and programme
