Specialized in maritime structures, ports, coastal engineering, modeling
Garcia Fluxa has more than 12 years of professional and research experience, specializing in the design of maritime structures, ports and coastal engineering, and numerical modeling. He has dedicated time to mentoring graduate students and developing instructive publications for static and dynamic mooring analyses. He also serves as the vice chairman of the WG 200 Single Point and Multi Point Facilities working group for the international professional association PIANC.
'We are lucky to have an individual with his breadth of technical experience and leadership,' said Daniel Ramos, director of ports and maritime engineering. 'He’s the right person to help execute BA’s strategic growth initiatives and his mentorship skills are invaluable.'
Garcia Fluxa expands BA’s marine and coastal engineering practice to new European markets while supporting projects in the United States and beyond. He strengthens specialty services, and further develops the ports and maritime group’s goals of growing its marine engineering footprint by building on the company's cruise, marina and port maritime projects worldwide.
'Servando’s qualifications and personality make him the right fit for the expansion of our marine engineering group,' said Mark Ittel, SVP ports and maritime. 'He will provide additional expertise in the key areas of design, coastal engineering and modeling. In today’s environment government entities, private facility investors and cruise tourism destinations worldwide need to consider sea-level rise as well as new methodologies for design of marine structures. BA is prepared to provide our clients with that marine engineering guidance.'
