Witteveen+Bos Completes Feasibility Study for Barranquilla New Port

The study Witteveen+Bos recently conducted for Royal Port S.A. in order to ascertain the feasibility of a new port on the mouth of the Magdalena River near Barranquilla, Colombia, shows that the port is technically and nautically feasible.

Now that its feasibility has been established, Royal Port is going to acquire the port concession from river management authority Cormagdalena.

For this project Witteveen+Bos has joined forces with two subcontractors: the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) and Colombia’s Antea Group. After Royal Port has obtained the required port concession, the next step will be to produce the detailed design of the port.

In the first phase of the project, Witteveen+Bos has investigated the technical feasibility of the planned port using hydrodynamic modelling techniques and a simulation to demonstrate the plan’s nautical safety.

Witteveen+Bos experts in the field of master planning and port structures designed and adapted the new port lay-out taking the physical site conditions and the design ship into account.

This was the first time a nautical simulation of this magnitude was performed for a Colombian port.
