RISK STUDIES

Estudios de navegación y riesgos para la construcción de infraestructuras sobre vías navegables: puente Vidin-Calafat (Danubio) o el nuevo puente sobre la bahía de CáNavigation and risk studies for the construction of infrastructures on waterways: Vidin-Calafat bridge (Danube) and the new bridge over the bay of Cádiz (Spain). This approach covers human error (navigation, positioning…

ACCIDENTS: PRESTIGE

Assessment of various alternative scenarios for action after the accident of the “Prestige” oil tanker (2002, Galicia, Spain). Various hypothesis for action were analysed in two specific aspects: towing the damaged vessel and the evolution of spills. Taking the weather conditions on that date into consideration (wind, waves, currents and tides), a comparative assessment was…

RIVER NAVIGATION

Manoeuvring simulation studies in various rivers in Germany: approach to the Heidelberg Lock; feasibility depending on the vessels’ size/power in relation to the current and water level; analysis of the influence of a cross-current on inland navigation vessels; behaviour of conventional boats and convoys of barges being pushed.

VERTICAL DIMENSIONING STUDIES

The vertical dimensions in manoeuvring areas can be precisely calculated using probabilistic design, considering the main variables in detail, beyond the general deterministic formula: vessel type and size, access draughts, tidal level and depth, course and speed (squat), direction-period-wave height. In this way, access draughts to the Exterior Port at A Coruña (Spain), the ports…

FSRU INSTALLATION FEASIBILITY

Extensive experience in nautical studies for the configuration of an FSRU regasification vessel and an LNG storage vessel, due to taking part in 42 of the 73 international LNG terminals studied. The special features of this type of terminal demand specialist analysis of manoeuvring, mooring, traffic and risks, where Siport21 has used a cutting edge…

DEVELOPMENT OF LARGE PORTS IN SPAIN

Nautical feasibility, manoeuvring and mooring studies for the development of all the large Spanish ports (Barcelona, Tarragona, Castellón, Sagunto, Valencia, Alicante, Cartagena, Almería, Málaga, Algeciras, Cádiz, Huelva, Bilbao, Gijón, Ferrol, Punta Langosteira (A Coruña), Las Palmas and Granadilla (Tenerife)). Since the 1990s, many of the largest Spanish ports have undertaken large expansion works (new basins,…

Simulator for evaluating the cost-benefit and carbon footprint of an OPS installation in a Port

Siport21 has developed a methodology to define the sizing and optimize OPS facilities in ports. The simulator provides an estimate of hourly power demand over the course of a year associated with probability levels. This methodology will help ports to have probability based estimates and their seasonal distribution. It will therefore be essential for decisionmaking,…
