Vision Energy Corp. recently finished a detailed marine simulation study for the proposed design and future operations of jetty and quay wall infrastructure that will serve its Green Energy Hub in North Sea Port of Vlissingen, the Netherlands.
Through the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Evolution Terminals BV, Maritime Research Institute Netherlands was commissioned to carry out the study, in cooperation with the North Sea Port authority.
The purpose of the study was to determine whether arrival and departure maneuvers to and from the company’s proposed new jetty can be conducted in a safe and efficient manner and to assess any impact the proposed new jetty may have on other vessel traffic in the port.
The company’s proposed new wall infrastructure is designed to receive seagoing tankers up to Very Large Gas Carrier size for bulk import of products such as refrigerated liquefied petroleum gas and green ammonia; and for the mooring of barges, coasters and bunker vessels that will be loaded for supply and distribution of goods to customers and end users.
The study determined that the arrival and departure maneuvers to and from the company’s proposed new jetty can be conducted in a safe manner under the tested weather conditions and current operating circumstances. It will continue to work closely with the pilots from North Sea Port to prepare detailed operating and training manuals and will further analyze the tidal forces that occur while vessels are moored, particularly during high tide.
