Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club appoints Marina Projects Ltd

The growing demand for moorings in Hong Kong has led to the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) and Hebe Haven Yacht Club (HHYC) to call in the specialists.

Marina Projects the global, independent, specialist marina consultancy based on the south coast of England will undertake a review of the mooring capacity at their facilities to analyse the efficiency of the current water space with consideration to the site constraints and local market in order to better accommodate.
The review will take account of both the RHKYC and HHYC swinging moorings and look to 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 the necessary level of detailed appraisal and consider the extreme typhoon conditions, Marina Projects will be making an assessment of the metocean data and prevailing site conditions.
The review comes against a background of a wider review by Maritime Authorities in Hong Kong of the general demand for mooring and typhoon shelter capacity.
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 include Baroque on Lamma, New World Qingdao, Westhaven (New Zealand) and Wyndham Harbour (Australia).
