Harbours

Dynamic environmental factors such as wind, waves, currents and geology in combination with economic, operational, nautical and environmental requirements make harbour development and planning a complex activity.

MUC Engineering has experience in the total harbour consultancy service covering a large part of the Masterplan process from planning, financial analysis, hydraulic modeling, maritime and operational simulation to materials handling, dredging, engineering and project management.
