Ports and Harbors

MAA understands the complicated systems and facilities required for port operations to efficiently handle the large container volumes responsible for maritime trade. As Asian trade volume increases with the new partnerships between countries, MAA has provided geotechnical engineering services, planning and design consultation, and feasibility studies for new terminals, as well as for renovations and expansions of existing ports and harbors.


Project and construction management of projects such as the Taipei Cruise Port and Keelung Harbor Maritime Information Center demonstrate MAA’s ability to work on a wide range of maritime facilities and systems.


As experts in geotechnical engineering, MAA has consulted in several notable maritime cases, including site selection and feasibility study for Thailand’s largest Laem Chabang port. MAA has also provided structural design and dock movement studies for APL, one of the world’s largest international container shipping services, for their local ports in Kaohsiung and Keelung.


Another notable project was MAA’s participation of the Kaohsiung International Port Overall Development, providing a wide range of services including preliminary master plan, transportation forecast and analysis, environment & land & air traffic studies, and cost analysis. As the largest harbor in Taiwan and responsible for over 10 million TEU of cargo, MAA is capable of handling large maritime projects.
