MITAGS-PMI Conducts 14,000 and 18,000 TEU

Ship Simulation Study for the Port of New York and New Jersey

A major navigational channel deepening and improvement project has been completed in the Port of New York and New Jersey. The controlling depth of the major navigation channels has been increased to 50 feet at MLL water. Additionally, the Bayonne Bridge is being raised to allow safe passage of the higher ultra-large container ve  ssel (ULCV). The bridge project is expected to be completed in 2017. Major stakeholders in the port felt it was vital to conduct a full-mission ship simulation study to identify the best practices for the safe and efficient handling of ULCV transits to the major container terminals in the port. The simulations were conducted at the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS) in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, in two phases during the second half of 2016:
