This paper describes an innovative approach towards quay wall renovation design. In the “RDM Kraanbaan 13” project in Rotterdam, significant cost savings were made and environmental impact was minimised, while on a tight schedule and with limited information about the structure and its future use. Essential were a very practical and flexible...

The geographical location makes the port of Livorno one of the most important in Italy. The port, in-fact, benefits of an extended network of roads and rails connecting it with the rest of Italy, and central and southern Europe as well. The history of Livorno and of its port is inextricably linked to that of Pisa and Florence, and to the...

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...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal land or in shallow coastal waters. The surface level of the land for port facilities is then raised to a level well above the highest water mark. This requires vast volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea. Besides the cost of dredging, there is the environmental...

Container ships should only make very small horizontal movements at the berth for efficient (off loading of containers. This is especially a concern in ports directly facing the open ocean, where high swells at sea can cause harbour oscillations and low-frequency surge motions of the ship. Cavotec MSL has developed a new mooring unit, the...
