RHKYC And HHYC Appoint Marina Projects Limited
Published: Wednesday, 23 July 2014
Marina Projects Ltd has been appointed by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) and Hebe Haven Yacht Club (HHYC) to conduct a review of their mooring capacity at Hebe Haven. Stage One of the study entails analysing the efficiency of the current water space taking into consideration the site constraints and local market to accommodate the growing demand for moorings in Hong Kong.
The review will take into account both the RHKYC and HHYC swinging moorings and produce practical conceptual arrangements that optimise the existing mooring facilities of both clubs, ensuring there is a match between vessel sizes and mooring capacity. In order to provide a detailed appraisal and consider the extreme typhoon conditions, Marina Projects will assess the offshore data and prevailing site conditions.
“We are thrilled to be further strengthening our work in the Asia-Pacific region with our appointment by the RHKYC,” says Mike Ward, Project Director. “We have a great deal of experience in assessing the optimisation of water space in comparison to the needs of the local market. Our team of knowledgeable and informed consultants will be able to provide the client with a set of clear opportunities to consider before proceeding to the next stage.”
Marina Projects has been active throughout the Asia-Pacific region since 2010 and has recently opened a branch office in Hong Kong. The company has an existing relationship with Mott MacDonald Hong Kong and other projects in the region including Baroque on Lamma Island, New World Qingdao, Westhaven (New Zealand) and Wyndham Harbour (Australia).
