Simulations and CFD
Simulation studies of a newly or redesigned port will help you understand the need for dredging or layout changes while computational fluid dynamics will help you optimise the flow performance of a plant or a vessel.

Emergency towing - when preparation is equally important as the operation
It is well known, that ship incidents can lead to terrible outcomes which is why fast and efficient emergency towing is necessary in order to salvage the ships. However, if the towing operations is not properly trained and prepared for the outcome can end up being even worse.
A well-operating turning basin is of vital importance for the port efficiency. But when establishing or re-designing a turning basin does it make sense to follow existing guidelines?
Training the crew
Team dynamics, communication, mutual understanding and interaction are fundamental parameters for developing a functional and valuable teamwork.
Manoeuvring a megaship can be challenging
With a TEU capacity of over 15,000, megaships are often challenged by their own manoeuvring capabilities.
The ISO 19030 standard
The standard contains descriptions of different methods for measuring and assessing the performance of the hull and propeller of ships. In our daily work, we are deeply involved in measuring performance of ships and have been for many years.
Let CFD do the trim optimisation for you!
Trim optimisation is one of the easiest and cheapest methods for ship performance optimisation.
Correlations in performance indicators
Imagine the following scenario: You wish to try a new performance improvement setup on a ship in actual operation.
Simulation studies used in evaluation
Simulation studies were used to evaluate the New Port of Veracruz.
Ship simulator training of pilots and tug masters
Napier Port invests in a ship simulator system from FORCE Technology to train pilots and tug masters in a safer and more controlled environment.
