Maritime and Landside Traffic Challenges of Future Cruise Ship Size Developments – Nautical Simulation Study
January 10th, 2018
Background – Definition of the project
The HERO mbH is the operating company of the Port of Rostock and the Warnemünde cruise center The Warnemünde cruise center was developed itself very successful in the last years. The center is one of the three leading cruise ports in the southern part of the Baltic Sea.
It is planned to rearrange the yard basin in Warnemünde with the objective of the construction of a new berthing place, designed for Very Large Cruise ships.
The HERO has developed two versions of the new layout of the yard basin in each case are two berthing places for this kind of Ships. With the help of a Shiphandling Simulation.
It is to determine and evaluate the safe navigation procedure (entering the port and berthing on the berthing places of new rearranged basin). During the Simulator runs the environmental conditions (especially the wind condition) has to be taken into account.
