Our senior staff have spent a significant part of their working lives on port development projects with both internal and external clients including many engineering consultants and contractors. Aktis’s combined specialist knowledge of metocean conditions, extreme statistics and ship response makes us a valuable partner.
The metocean component of such studies can cover the optimization of a channel layout and design conditions for navaids, the optimization of breakwater or quay geometry, the computation of the downtime for a new berth and the computations of design conditions for port structures. To answer our client’s needs, our experts have access to large metocean databases that can be coupled with our numerical models, among which wave agitation models are key. Our experts have a long experience in dealing with short and long (infragravity) waves and their impact on harbor basins and moored vessels.
