HPC to Advise on New Tobago Cruise Terminal

Hamburg Port Consulting (HPC) announced that it will carry out a market analysis to guide what it said was a passenger shipping regeneration program at the Port of Scarborough on the Caribbean Island of Tobago.

According to the press release, HPC will determine the drivers which should be initiated by the Government to grow the cruise industry over the next two decades.

“The over-arching aim of the project is to make Scarborough an attractive cruise destination, and with neighboring Caribbean islands achieving passenger throughputs of significant higher numbers per year, we believe there is massive potential. Our task is to pinpoint those initiatives Tobago is best advised to make in order to achieve such potential,” said Hartmut Beyer, HPC’s cruise market specialist and project manager.

HPC will deliver a cruise market analysis while JMetrix Ltd., an association lead by architects, will be in charge of designing the necessary infrastructure. The results of the first phase of the feasibility study are expected in March 2023.

Joshua Stewart, lead design consultant at JMetrix said: “HPC is a vital element of our consortia as its reputation as a port development consultant is well-established and we see Scarborough port as a primary entry point to the rest of the island.

“A successful cruise terminal will connect tourists to not just the city but will help open up the delights of Tobago as a whole. Our goal is the creation of an attractive ‘nature-city and the power of the marine environment is central to that aim.”

HPC is experienced in advising on cruise facility developments. The company has worked on nearly twenty cruise projects in the past twenty years in Germany, Croatia, Tunisia, and the USA and on over forty port development projects in the Caribbean in total.
