Oceânica completed manouvering simulation for Barra do Riacho LNG terminal

At the request of Petrobras, Oceânica have completed many manouvering analysis for the new LNG terminal in Barra do Riacho (called TBR). The purpose was to evaluate if the planed dimensions for the channel and evolution area were appropriate to the features and flow of the vessel which will be handling the gas transportation in the area.

The New terminal will occupy 46 hectares and will be held together with Terminal Aquaviário de Barra do Riacho (called TABR), in Aracruz, ES.

Simulations took place at the Nautilus – Center of Ports and Oceanic Simulation and counted with port authorities members and captains from Espirito Santo Ports.

In total, more than 50 manouvers were performed on Full Mission Bridge Simulator, using fast time and real time tools, shared in 2 weekly campaigns.

The importance of this project, strengths even more the need of simulation as many situations as possible to warrant its viability: in total. Investments are estimated in 2,7 bi (Real) and natural gas daily production is estimated at about 14 million cubic meters .

Oceanica’s workshop about Simulation Solutions applied to Port Analysis and Maneuvers

With investment’s in Terminals and Ports increasing in Brazil, the need for specialized tools are necessary to analyze maneuver, to predict the ability to dock a given vessel in desired cradle. Oceanica already acts providing simulations in accelerated time, also called fast time, for major expansion projects and new terminals in the country, announced that it is working on improving your real time Simulator of maneuvers, so turns it on full mission Bridge configuration (Full Mission Bridge). 
Oceanica organized a seminar with companies about Simulation Solutions applied to Port Analysis and Maneuvers, strengthening contacts with customer and partners, held on 29 November in São Paulo, with the presence of Marin, Dutch laboratory partner in this project, and representatives of the VALE, the Navy of Brazil-CIAGA, HATCH, Wilson Sons and EMBRAPORT.
