BMT Isis provides safety support to the first-ever dockside LNG regasification facility
BMT Isis Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Ltd, has provided safety support and advice to the (PDPorts) TeesPort Harbourmaster in order to aid the planned commencement of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import operations through TeesPort.
Located in the port of Teesport near Middlesbrough, the Teesside GasPort is the first-ever dockside LNG regasification facility and the second operational LNG importation facility in the UK.
The inauguration of the facility took place at Teesport on Tuesday 20th February, organised by Excelerate Energy, who operate the specialised Energy Bridge vessel fleet.
BMT Isis was selected for this work based on its marine navigational safety assessment and auditing capability. The company is also equipped with specialist knowledge of safety management systems, and of the navigational safety management system operated by PD Teesport in particular.
BMT Isis has subsequently undertaken work for Orkney Islands Council, who required a Risk Assessment on the Ship-To-Ship transfer of LNG that is associated with the same LNG import operation.
BMT's has undertaken substantial work for maritime authorities and operators in the past which includes Search and Rescue capability assessment and management, vessel safety, environmental assessments and impact, waste management studies, and risk-based Safety & Security management consultancy services.
