ABPmer to Develop Waterford Hydrodynamic and Sediment Models

ABPmer, a numerical modelling and dredge specialist, has been commissioned by the Port of Waterford to develop hydrodynamic and sediment models of the Waterford Estuary, as part of its Master Plan process.

By replicating present conditions, the model will be used to optimize the port’s current dredge commitment along with informing feasibility studies, environmental assessments, designs and construction plans for the port’s ongoing growth.

Heidi Roberts, Head of Physical Processes at ABPmer, said: “We are delighted to be asked to support the Port of Waterford in its future ambitions.”

“As the in-house marine science adviser to Associated British Ports (ABP), the UK’s largest ports group, we know that successful design and operation of ports is dependent on understanding the natural environment.”

To inform and calibrate the models, it is essential to have a good understanding of the tidal and flow conditions both spatially and temporally within and throughout the estuary, ABPmer said in its release.

ABPmer has therefore contracted Hydrographic Surveys Ltd, a local survey company to undertake water quality surveys and to assist them in deploying instruments.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
