Risk study for Damietta Port New ENPC Berth

Damietta - Egyptian Nitrogen Products Company (ENPC) intends to build a dedicated export jetty for their Ammonia/Urea production facility at Damietta Port.

EPC

set of well-founded technical reports being used as input for the EPC tender documents.

3D views

3D views from SHIP-NAVIGATOR was valuable to verify the feasibility and safety of the maneuvers with local stakeholders

As a design consultant we prepared the design of the marine terminal layout for the ENPC Jetty Project, considering maneuvering and mooring of the design PANAMAX vessel. Hereby we also take account of the relocation of the port bunkering facility and the local maritime administration requirements. Arcadis performed detailed wave penetration and sedimentation studies, a marine risk assessment and developed operational procedures for maneuvers of the design vessel. Besides the design of the marine terminal, we prepared the EPC tender documents for these works.

SHIP-Navigator

For the verification and approval  of the lay-out Arcadis performed real-time maneuvering simulations, using SHIP-NAVIGATOR system with its 3D view modelling. During the simulations the maritime administration officials, marine pilot from Damietta Port and the project manager from ENPC from Damietta Port were present. 

Due to the simulations results, we optimized the method of tug use and recommended the method of performing arrival and departure maneuvers. We also advised on the location of the turning basin and assessed the effect of relocating the bunkering jetty on the safety of maneuvers. Feasibility of containing the critical failure modes (emergency scenarios) of the maneuvering design vessel were included in this investigation.

Result

A set of well-founded technical reports being used as input for the EPC tender documents. These reports included descriptions of maritime risks, evaluation safety of maneuvers at the new ENPC Jetty and recommendations regarding the design of the new marine terminal. Demonstrating  the recommended solutions by using 3D views from SHIP-NAVIGATOR was valuable to verify the feasibility and safety of the maneuvers with local stakeholders.
