Specialist algorithm will allow bulk carriers at Geelong channel to haul the maximum tonnage

Wed Jun 03 09:28:17 CEST 2015 arnekiel

The Port of Geelong will adopt the Dynamic Under Keel Clearance (DUKC) system for assessing maximum loads that can be carried from its channel. Where currently bulk carriers are subject to a single, strict and static weight limit for each departure, the DUKC algorithm considers a wider range of real-time factors to determine the maximum load on a case-by-case basis. Current temperature, tides, wind, and cargo type are all included in the calculation. Developer OMC International says a ship leaving Geelong at high tide on a hot day could safely carry a larger load and still be able to navigate the channel than at low tide in cooler weather. Bulk carriers will be able to safely carry up to 3,000 tonnes of additional cargo on each trip out, the company predicts. The system is already in place at several ports around the world, including in Brisbane and Melbourne. A spokesperson for OMC says it is particularly suited to bulk ports because every spare piece of capacity can be utilised. Geelong Port is the largest regional port in Victoria, and the sixth largest port in Australia. It specialises in bulk grain, woodchips, fertiliser, and crude oil movements. http://www.fullyloaded.com.au/logistics-news/1506/port-of-geelong-changes-tack-on-statutory-load-limits/

Labor floats plan for giant pier out into Port Phillip (near Geelong)

Thu Jul 31 08:49:47 CEST 2014 arnekiel

Australias Labor’s proposal to build an 8km pier near Geelong to cater for large container ships and reduce the need to dredge the port has been labelled as ridiculous by Minister for Ports David Hodgett. Labor is considering building a giant, hook-shaped pier stretching about eight kilometres into the sea as a way to make good on its proposal to build a new container port in the west of Port Phillip Bay near Geelong. The pier would extend at least three kilometres out to sea into deeper waters, which would reduce the huge amount of dredging needed to build the port, then run parallel to shore for about five kilometres. Large ships carrying up to 10,000 containers would dock at the offshore terminal to unload their cargo, which would be moved to land by rail.
