Marine and Offshore > Port Feasibility and Valuation – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Port feasibility and valuation is a key area where careful techno-economic feasibility, financial valuation and risk analysis must be undertaken along other components of project appraisal and asset valuation.

Arising from the global drive to actively involve private sector participation in port development and operations, the need clearly exists to equip both public and private stakeholders with the requisite knowledge and skills necessary for the successful understanding of various components of port feasibility and valuation, whether for existing port assets or for new ports and terminal expansion projects.
