Large Ship Berth At The Seaport Of Emden - CML Supports Port Planning
Emden is one of the most important Northern European ports for vehicle transshipment. 1.3 million were transhipped here in 2016, and forecasts point to further growth. This is one of the reasons why the port operator is planning to build a large ship berth. The CML and the Sellhorn engineering company have carried out a nautical survey and an analysis of economic needs. For the needs analysis, the development of transhipment volumes was examined and a forecast of the expected demand for transport in Emden was made. The main result of this analysis is that new capacity needs to be created in order to meet the projected turnover growth. The new construction of the berth also ensures that ships, which are still growing in size in the long term, can continue to call at the port and be handled there. In addition, the new berth can temporarily serve as a transshipment alternative for companies in the inland port if the capacity of the inland port is fully utilised. In the nautical survey, ship handling simulations were carried out at the CML, accompanied by pilots from Emden. The simulation runs have shown that ships with expected future size profi les can already enter and leave the outer port of Emden today. Other important results of the nautical survey include recommendations on manoeuvring procedures, towing and mooring during the construction and operation phase of the new large ship berth. Overall, the CML investigations confi rm the high benefi t of the planned measure and the technical feasibility of a new berth between Emspier and Emskai.
