They make it possible to control of system or substructure by less investment cost. Simulation models are often used in port modeling, capacity analysis, queue size and port efficiency. In this study, simulation model of loading terminals of the BOTA? Ceyhan pipeline were done. For this reason, AWESIM simulation program was used. This modeling evaluated for 365 days and each ship has approached the port with intervals of 12-24, 12-36, 24-36 and 24-48 hours. Stormy days in a year have been assumed as 30. Each ship demands trailer and pilotage service when approaching and leaving the port. In this simulation model; ship types, capacities, coming frequencies, loading times, maneuvering time and transportation capacity of BOTA? Ceyhan Marine Terminal were investigated.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.08.01.16}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Simulation Model, Maritime Transportation, Turkish Waterways, Port Capacity, Queue Size, Marine Terminal, BOTAS Ceyhan, AWESIM Simulation Model} }
