MAXIMISING PRODUCTIVITY MINIMISING RISK
For effective Berth Management Oropesa draws on its years of operations across numerous terminals to direct the greatest advantage for it’s clients.
The waterfront of any port or terminal can be a hazardous environment. Mooring activities carry inherent risk where personnel interact with lines under tension.
While a ship alongside may seem stationary, the forces of tide, current, wind, sea and swell are constantly at odds with the vessel resulting in high-energy loads existing in even the calmest of harbour environments.
The design of mooring operations from physical, personnel and practical aspects is essential to the maintenance of safety for Personnel, Ship and Port.
While design can reduce the aforementioned exposures, it is the management of the residual risks related to the terminal or berth operation that will deliver opportunity for maximising the productivity of the interaction.
No two terminals face the same challenges. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses that affect a berth is essential in shaping operations towards safer and more efficient outcomes.
