Systems Navigator supports defining new port rules that maximize the port’s potential now and into the future
DELFT; Mar. 22, 2018 – The Port of Duqm in Oman is drafting port rules for its liquid jetties. Systems Navigator is selected as the consultant to analyze the impact of port rules on the foreseen port performance and to advise on the rules that maximize the potential port capacity. In order to do this, multiple port scenarios are analyzed and compared. By quantifying the impact of different port rules the project team was able to develop a thorough understanding of important performance indicators, such as berth occupancy and waiting times.
The project team identified risks for waiting times in the port rules and recommended preferred port rules having the lowest chance on waiting time, whilst having the highest port throughput potential. Additionally, the team drafted berthing procedures and queuing priority rules. This extensive study is an important element in the development of the Port of Duqm, ensuring it is ready for the future.
