Establish the feasibility of inland navigation and associated nautical risks

Navegación InteriorSiport21 has presented a speech about how to establish the feasibility of river navigation and know deeply the nautical risks of these areas at Smart Rivers Conference, held in Lyon this week. This kind of study -applied in Pakistan, Bangladesh or Argentina river Terminals- allow to know – in a short period of time and with a limited cost- current state of the rivers and to make decisions about new traffics.

The methodology, designed by Siport21, takes into account the specificity of the port areas in rivers, with several terminals located along the shoreline and vessels moving upstream and downstream at a certain speed and under local hydraulic and meteorological conditions.

Meanwhile, it is possible to quantify the probability of grounding or collision – using the same “fast time” simulation methodology – assessing nautical risk in different locations, for several vessels and environmental conditions.

In both cases, the most critical areas could be deeply studied using real-time ship manoeuvres simulator in a further stage.

 This methodology is profitable, as projects eventually considered non-feasible when applying a (conservative) deterministic approach can be demonstrated feasible if based on accurate probabilistic results. The larger the size and relevance of the project, the more interesting and useful.
