  • Developing port traffic demand forecasts for energy bulks, including coal, biomass, crude oil, LNG and petroleum products, to assist ports in planning for the handling and inland distribution of energy products
  • Helping to assess the commercial feasibility of new biomass power stations by providing input on the cost of transporting energy products from their sources to the power station
