We have gained considerable experience assisting clients in attaining and maintaining regulatory compliance in a wide variety of industrial and commercial sectors. We provide a level of assistance that meets the particular needs of a client, from minor permit preparation support and auditing to full outsourcing for a facility's compliance requirements. We have also assisted many clients in the development and implementation of Environmental Management Systems, including compliance with ISO 14001.

Over the years, we have built a strong reputation for management skills, technical strength, and environmental health and safety (EH&S) expertise. Several of our key people have worked for industry and/or regulatory agencies and therefore have real world experience and an appreciation of the EH&S management system and regulatory process.

Designing Ports for Easter Island

image

Easter Island, located in the Pacific Ocean 3700km to the west of continental Chile, is dependent on shipping to supply goods for the local population and for its growing tourism industry.  The island, however, lacks a sheltered all-weather port. Ships that arrive to the island unload goods offshore onto smaller boats. These boats unload the goods at a small-scale dock in Hanga-Piko.  This system delays the delivery of goods to the island and increases transport costs.

GHD was contracted by the Chilean Public Works Department to carry out the pre-feasibility engineering studies to determine where to build an island port based on marine, environmental, land-use, cultural, social and economic considerations. GHD Chile’s Port Group led the project, supported by the Water team (modelling the wave conditions) and the Environmental team (assessing the environmental, social and cultural aspects of each port site).
