The Environmental Effects of Projected Container Terminal to the Safely Manoeuvring
1 Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey
ABSTRACT: This paper investigates vessel traffic risks that are exposed by a new port installation. A vessel traffic risk analysis was performed by the Ship Handling Simulator team for container terminal installation in Izmit Bay. The main purpose is to evaluate whether the container terminal project shall affect the proper operation of nearside Oil Refinery Terminal. Construction and revision of shore structures may form significant threats for masters in ports and narrow waterways. The Ship handling simulator of ITUMF presents the environmental objects’ effects, vessel traffic and weather conditions. Furthermore, the Environmental Stress Model of Inoue (2000) may give an opportunity to analyse vessel traffic risks quantitatively by SHS.
