Feasibility Study for LNG Terminal

  Location : Saint John, NB, Canada  
  Year : 2009 -10  
  Client : CANAPORT LNG Terminal  
  Vessel Type : LNG and Tugs  

CANAPORT LNG used the services of the Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC) to determine safe and appropriate procedures for approaching, berthing and unberthing manoeuvres at the LNG terminal pier with tugboat assistance.

Pilots from the Atlantic Pilotage Authority and tugboat captains from Atlantic Towing Ltd. used four bridges of the MSRC navigation simulator to conduct a series of simulations on various types of LNG vessels assisted by 5,000 HP tugboats fitted with azimuthing podded propulsion (Z-drive).

The MSRC developed a geographic database for the site and integrated the currents used for the simulations.
