Manoeuvring Feasibility Study for a Larger Vessel


  Location : Port of Matane, Canada  
  Year : 2012-12  
  Client : Grieg Star  
  Vessel Type : K-Class General Cargo Bulk Carrier  
  GRIEG STAR, an integrated shipping company and owner of one of the world’s largest open hatch fleets, 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 port of Matane, for their K-class general cargo bulk carrier.

Experienced Docking Pilots from the Corporation of the Lower St.-Lawrence Pilots used the DNV Class “A” 330° Full Mission Simulator of the MSRC to conduct a series of simulations with different weather conditions in order to establish the operational limits or approaching, berthing and unberthing manoeuvres without tug assistance.

For this study, the MSRC developed three different ship models of the K-class, the port of Matane geographic database and integrated the currents used for the simulations.
