Tools to optimize high speed craft - port interface concepts (TOHPIC)

Objective

The difficulty for the High Speed Craft (HSC) to approach, manoeuvre and load or unload safely and efficiently in existing ports causes severe delays in turnaround time. This limits the applicability of HSC. To improve this with regard to manoeuvrability, mooring and terminal system TOHPIC will address controllability, communications and management systems, the shape of mooring interface systems and devices, as well as automatic loading and unloading techniques, and provide harmonised EU standards for sea/shore interface operation, propose new shore to ship interface solutions by integrating port layout, cargo handling and infrastructure concepts, propose effective logistic solutions and provide a simulation tool for optimisation of turnaround and safety conditions. TOHPIC is end-user driven, by major ports, HSC operators and industry.
