Nigel Gee Retires

Nigel Gee has retired as managing director of the eponymous BMT Nigel Gee and Associates Ltd, to be replaced by John Bonafoux, a founding partner of the company and technical director there since 1996. The Southampton UK based design office for innovative, high speed ships and boats is currently working on car ferries, a 50 knot naval research craft, and several vessels based on its patented Pentamaran design.

Situated near six important British coal fired power stations, including Drax, the country's largest power station, HIT 2 was developed to meet the power generation industry's growing demand for coal. To secure the financial success of the terminal project, ABP signed agreements with mining giant BHP Billiton, as well as power station operators International Power, Scottish and Southern Energy, Drax Power and EDF Energy.
