Simulation Study Labuhan Maringgai- Indonesia
In 2012 BE-Software conducted a simulation study on behalf of RINA for the Labuhan Maringgai LNG Floating Storage and Regassification Facilities Unit Project Charlie for Royal Haskonig.
The study required modelling of three LNG Carriers of 70,000m3, 140,000m3 and 217,000 m3 capacity and the FSRU. The study was carried out in Genova over two weeks and involved testing arrival and departures from the FSRU under limiting environmental conditions for this greenfields site. Full environmental conditions of winds, swell and current were simulated together with a variety of towage configurations. The study indentified the correct orientation of the FSRU, the maximum environmental conditions for berthing and departing and the necessary towage requirements.
Simulation Study in Monfalcone Italy
BE-Software conducted a simulation study for an LNG Gas Carrier arriving and departing the port of Monfalcone Italy. The study was conducted in 2015 on behalf of d'Appolonia and required the modelling of a 125,000 m3 LNG Carrier and the existing channels and berth structure for the LNG Gas Terminal. Full environmental modelling of the wind, wave conditions and current streams were included in the study. The study investigated the limiting environmental conditions and towage requirements for arrivals and departures of the Gas Carrier. Of particular importance were the effects of squat and bank effect when manouevring in the channel. The simulation included the actual berthing of the Gas Carrier onto the fenders of the berth. The study was conducted in Genova over a period of two weeks with the Captain of the Gas Carrier overseeing the study. He was completley satisfied with the realism of the mathematical model of the ship and the outcomes of the study. The study was completed on time and within the budget
Simulation in New Zealand
Be- Software conducts simulation study in New Zealand
In July a channel design study was started on behalf of Royal Haskonig DHV on site at Marsden Point. Using portable simulation equipment featuring five channel vision (200 degrees HFOV) with real ship controls, the study was undertaken over a five day period. Modelling of Suezmax and Aframax tankers together with new channel designs and existing port infra structure was completed within two weeks prior to the study. Complex tidal streams where modeled over a 25 metre grid with stream changes every 6 minutes together with attenuating swell patterns through the area.
The simulation and reporting was completed on time and within budget and was carried out in two phases. The first phase was conducted on site in New Zealand and the second phase was conducted successfully online ( over Internet ).
