Hebe Haven

Specialist consultancy, Marina Projects Ltd, announced it has been appointed jointly by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) and Hebe Haven Yacht Club (HHYC) to undertake a review of the mooring capacity at their facilities in Hebe Haven. 

The purpose of Stage One of the study is to analyze the efficiency of the current water space with consideration to the site constraints and local market in order to better accommodate the growing demand for moorings in Hong Kong.  

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.

Mike Ward, Marina Projects’ Director commented, “We are thrilled to be further strengthening our work in the Asia-Pacific region with our appointment by the RHKYC.  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.”
