Seaports Safety

Eidos has developed specific skills and tools to assess seaport safety.

The logical process to assess the seaport safety is the following:

  1. Preliminary activities:
    1. Definition of the area under study
    2. Geographical reference of the area (GIS)
    3. Subdivision of the area in squared cells
    4. Other related activities
  2. Area and Cells Characterization:
    1. Subdividing the area in cells
    2. Localizing landing points in the seaport area
    3. Segmenting the port in sections
    4. Identifying the most important ship’s transit roads
    5. Quantifying the intensity of seaport traffic (in terms of overall naval traffic and boats that move hazardous materials)
    6. Assuming the speed distribution of the ships within various sections of seaport
    7. Assessing people density for each area examined
  3. Risk Quantification
    1. Identification of dangerous goods and top-events (collision, grounding, striking, impact and those related to loading/unloading operations)
  4. Consequences’ Integration
  5. Resiliency evaluation and Exposures Calculation
  6. Debottlenecking algorithms application to maximize port usage avoiding a significant increase of the global risk
  7. Sensitivity Analysis to measure the variation of integrated risk related to different scenarios

Eidos had developed specific tools to evaluate seaport safety:

  • Collision Code 2.1: collisions frequency evaluation
  • Penetration Code 2: stochastic evaluation of ship’s leakage after a collision
  • Teseo 2.1: human error evaluation
  • Transit 2.1: transport risk integration (a model developed for the Italian Ministry of Environment)
  • Area 2.1: area consequence and exposure integration (a model developed for the Italian Ministry of Environment)
  • EventTree 2: event trees evaluation
