We assessed whether the newest variant of RoRo vessels using the berth could be moored safely in a ship to ship configuration with the existing bollard locations. We used available metocean conditions to assess the maximum environmental conditions in which the vessels will remain alongside.
The reported outputs from this project included a mooring plan showing the use of bollards for each vessel and the worst credible conditions for this type of vessel at this berth. The worst credible scenario included state of tide, wind direction and loaded condition of the vessel.
