Simon Thomas has over 45 years’ professional experience in planning, design and procurement of harbours, sea and river ports, shipyards and naval facilities internationally. He has been involved chiefly in commercial ports and terminals for containers and bulk cargoes, and their navigation channels and landside connections.

He has been responsible for the management and execution of major development projects, from inception to implementation, chiefly using FIDIC-based contracts. Recent work has centred on strategic planning, feasibility studies, master planning and BOT concessions; audits of existing terminals and operations; and buy- and sell-side due diligence advice. Many assignments have entailed facility planning, handling equipment requirements, capacity/productivity analysis, and review of capex/opex.

Simon has advised IFIs and commercial banks on a wide range of port developments, and has worked on projects covering over 80 countries in all continents, including several mega projects in excess of US$1.0 bn. He was a member of PIANC Working Group 135: design principles for container terminals in small and medium sized ports.

He has collaborated with many global terminal operators, port authorities, government departments, constructors and investors in advanced and developing countries. His experience in lead and other key roles in multi-discipline and multi-cultural teams (including working extensively in Spanish) enables him to deliver projects in a wide range of situations.
