Mooring of vessels is very important for safe and efficient cargo handling of ships in ports, just as safe infrastructure is important. Civil Engineers and Mariners used to have a different approach for the same problem: what should be the safe working load (SWL) of a bollard. Mariners use the Minimum Breaking Load (MBL) of their mooring lines...

The PIANC ‘Guidelines for the design of fender systems’ MarCom report of WG 33 – 2002 specifies allowable maximum hull pressures for various vessels. Fender manufactures provide maximum hull pressures resulting from their fenders. The stated maximum hull pressures of cylindrical fenders exceed the recommended values by PIANC 2002 for gas...

The stability of any structure is an important aspect in civil engineering. This aspect is the subject of the researched quay wall at the Amazonehaven, port of Rotterdam. The quay wall with a relieving platform structure had in various section, over the entire 900m length of the quay, large deformations at the toe of the combined wall. The...

The rapid development in containership dimensions creates a huge challenge for ports. But for one port basin in Rotterdam this challenge was too big. The nautical restrictions for the Amazonehaven would start at such moderate conditions that the basin would be closed for Ultra Large Container Ships (ULCS) about a 100 days a year. As this basin...

This article describes the preliminary results of a study in the Port of Rotterdam to assess the carbon footprint of port infrastructures, In the study two types of port infrastructure have been selected, a road construction and a quay wall construction. For both structures the individual components of these structures were categorized to assess...

On one of the last remaining plots in the existing port (without the 2nd Maasvlakte), the Port of Rotterdam designed a terminal for the handling of steel slabs (“brammen”). The terminal required a massive quay wall to accommodate the panamax vessels with their heavy cargo. The quay wall is tendered under a design and construct contract. This...
