Modelling of the LNGC pier including an accurate database of the tidal currents for the RABASKA LNG terminal project, in Canada.

Finalization of berthing and unberthing procedures developed for normal and critical conditions with different types of LNGCs, including the Q-Flex.

The manoeuvring procedures were carried out with tidal currents of up to four knots (2.06  m/s) and the help of up to four Z-drive tugboats.
