Hydro Electric, Wave and Tidal Energy

BMT works to safely and sustainably secure tomorrow's green energy supplies.

BMT’s systems engineering and system safety assessment methods provide a toolbox that the engineering design team and system safety practitioner can draw upon to evaluate designs from the earliest concept stage.

BMT’s systems engineering and system safety assessment methods provide a toolbox that the engineering design team and system safety practitioner can draw upon to evaluate designs from the earliest concept stage. Owners and operators of high hazard plants and facilities increasingly recognise that up-front investment in embedding ‘safety-by-design’ reduces through life project and operational risks and helps them secure the intended operational benefits of their investment programmes.

Our projects have a uniformly sharp emphasis on three fundamentals:

  • The adoption and adaptation from a range of high hazard industries of the best-suited risk analysis methods for the job in hand
  • A pragmatic commitment to ensure that analysis efforts remain in proportion to the risks identified and levels of uncertainty involved 
  • A focus on the overall objective - to provide our customers with the best quality advice on how to minimise safety and environmental risks during their asset and infrastructure investment programs.

An area of particular interest and focus for BMT lies in the development of effective management systems and processes to embed system safety techniques into our customers’ engineering, design, procurement and management practices at the working level.

As the world quests for green energy, the tremendous power of water is apparent to all, but harnessing such power throws important safety and environmental challenges for the engineer. BMT’s approach to safety and environmental management in the hydro-power and marine energy fields integrate the efforts of discipline specialists to ensure that projects deliver green energy that is fit for future generations.
