Passing ship evaluaiton for moored ships in Cochin Port

Large vessels entering the Port of Cochin may be causing large suction forces on moored ships. Aktis Hydraulics have evaluated the effect of passing ship hydrodynamic interaction forces on two berths were ships are moored parallel to the navigation channel in one of the port branches.

The analysis addressed the critical passing ship distances, vessel speed on the on hand and the mooring system integrity of the fenders and mooring lines on the other.
