(Europe) Redevelopment Plans for Port
Engineering specialists Hamburg Port Consulting and Roland Berger have partnered to produce a strategic study for the redevelopment of the Port of Beirut.
The port was ravaged by a deadly explosion earlier this year and the surrounding area is expected to require extensive reconstruction work and breakbulk handling.
“We have been shocked by the devastating explosion … We have been active since almost immediately after the explosion and stand by our readiness to support the further consultancy, reconstruction and operations of the Port of Beirut,” said Suheil Mahayni, Managing Director at HPC.
The two consultancies will jointly focus on improvements to efficiency, transparency, and hinterland connections as well as routes to finance the reconstruction.
