DHI Supports Port of Brisbane Expansion Plans (Australia)

In order to help with the Port of Brisbane’s capacity expansion plans, DHI developed an integrated numerical model for the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) – the entity that manages and develops the port.

This model was capable of wave and hydrodynamic modelling as well as moored vessel interaction analysis for the entire port.

Among a large suite of commitments, the PBPL is also responsible for maintaining navigable access to the port for commercial shipping. As such, it is considering plans to deepen 10 km of the navigational channel in order to provide access to larger, deeper drafted vessels, to the port.

PBPL made the strategic decision to contract DHI to develop an integrated numerical model capable of being utilised for a wide range of applications relevant to the port’s ongoing capacity planning and management.

A regional wave model was also included to complete the foundation for a wide array of multipurpose investigations that could be useful to the port at a later stage.
