EVOS Amsterdam and Systems Navigator explore new approaches to infrastructure optimization
Updated: Aug 13, 2020
DELFT; August 12, 2020 - Systems Navigator assisted Evos Amsterdam to gain insight into different infrastructure allocation set-ups, resulting in guidance to support decision making concerning the use of terminal assets and workforce.
Systems Navigator advised Evos Amsterdam on how to best allocate terminal infrastructure in order to minimize the number of sub orders. Various products and infrastructure allocations were analyzed to test the influence on the number of sub orders, berth occupancy and waiting times. Next to potential reallocation of infrastructure, the model outcomes identified the influence of potential changes of terminal throughput and the benefits of future infrastructure investments.
According to Evos Amsterdam: “The insights we gained from the analyses Systems Navigator performed on our terminal infrastructure helped us to compare different infrastructural allocations. This was not the first time that we have worked closely with Systems Navigator and therefore we were confident of their expertise in the current project. The results helped us to form an educated opinion on how to operate our terminal infrastructure in the most efficient manner.” – stated Paul Dekker, Front Line Execution Manager Evos Amsterdam.
On Systems Navigator side: “We are happy to have had the opportunity to advise and support Evos Amsterdam with their search for improved infrastructure usage. By further refining the Evos Amsterdam simulation model, we were able to not only simulate the water-side operations in a very detailed way but also taking into account additional infrastructure usage such as line displacements, pigging operations and tank to tank routing.” – stated Daan Merkestein, Systems Navigator Sr Consultant.
