The main focus of the project is on sustainable development of cruise/passenger terminals for cruise ships within a seaport without compromising the port's operational functions. While the three aspects of sustainable development i.e. social, economic and environmental will be covered, the project will also consider potential differences between a cruise/passenger terminal and cargo terminal within a seaport.
Given resource constraints, it will identify potential areas where resource sharing and saving can be made without compromising the operational requirements, service quality and competitiveness of the two types of terminals within a seaport. In addition, the project will consider both types of cruise terminals, i.e. dedicated terminals and multipurposed terminals, and the potential application of automation and new technologies for optimal investment and use of resources. It is expected that the project will involve participation from port management and stakeholders.
