Shipping Operations

St Helena

The island of St Helena relied totally on supply by sea, and following a proposal to construct an airport on the island there was a requirement to undertake an assessment of what future traffic would travel by air and what would still be required to be moved by sea. This included both passenger movements and general cargo requirements.

Fast ferry service between Abu Dhabi and Doha

A Fast Ferry service between Abu Dhabi and Doha was proposed to provide a shorter journey time between the two cities when compared with the land route via Saudi Arabia.  Studies of the passenger levels which could be expected were carried out in parallel with the identification of suitable routes which the vessels could use and the conditions of the land journey which led to the development of a possible system.  This included terminals close to the centre of each city providing berth space for high speed craft identified as being the most appropriate.
