Feasibility study for a new port infrastructure for LNG carriers (Cacouna)

  Location : St. Lawrence River  
  Year : 2005  
  Client : Sandwell  
  Vessel Type : LNG and ASD Tugs  

Modelling of the LNGC pier including an accurate database of the tidal currents for the CACOUNA ENERGY LNG terminal project, in Canada, and finalization of berthing and unberthing procedures developed for normal and critical conditions.

The manoeuvring procedures were carried out with tidal currents of up to three knots (1.54  m/s) and the help of up to four Z drive tugboats.

The force exerted by the ice was also modelled in order to reproduce the behaviour of a ship manoeuvring in ice-encumbered waters.
