HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
Learn how ForeCoast® Marine is being used to evaluate and optimise the efficiency of port operations.
ForeCoast® Marine simulates, in a virtual world, all of the port’s operations (e.g. tugs, pilotage, berthing, loading, off-loading) and the way these are affected by metocean conditions.
Through these simulations, it can be used to evaluate the current performance of the port in terms of key metrics such as:
The system can then be used to test out how different operational strategies or changes to a port's infrastructure will influence port performance, for example through changes to:
Tug type and number
Cargo handling equipment such as cranes and gantries
Dredging schedules, etc
The virtual model simulates the operation of the port using one strategy/infrastructure, then another, then another.
This allows port operators to optimise infrastructure investment decisions during the planning phase, allowing investments to be made in a cost-effective and strategic manner.
ForeCoast® Marine is also being used to assess the impact that climate change may have on port operations.

Please contact us to arrange a chat about your metocean risks and we will give you a free demonstration of the Gamer Mode (in person, or by webinar).
TIMESCALES: meeting duration, approximately 1 hour
After speaking with you, we will draft a proposal, scoping out the nature of the work we can do to provide a bespoke Gamer Mode that suits your needs.
TIMESCALES: proposal delivered within one week of speaking with you
Upon approval of the proposed work, we will develop your Gamer Mode model in close cooperation with you, providing regular updates.
TIMESCALES: Bespoke system delivered within 1-4 weeks, depending on the nature and complexity of your model
Some of our clients want us to run the Gamer Mode model as part of a consultancy service. Some want us to develop a bespoke system for their internal use. We are happy either way.
We can deliver a Gamer Mode model for your internal use, we will provide training on how to use it.
TIMESCALES: Training should just take half a day
Once in operation, we are here to support, just on the other end of a line.
TIMESCALES: Just a phone call away.
