Event programme

Come and get inspired on how to improve your business with the presentations from our DHI experts

8 May:
Panama 3 Hall | 08:30 AM to 10:00 AM

Expansion of Port Infrastructures

Ports on the Danish North Sea coast face a number of development challenges due to societal changes and changes in the sectors they will serve in the future. Discussion on the challenges related to expansion of these ports, which were originally planned and constructed for less demanding purposes.

Presented by Jens Kirkegaard

8 May:
Panama 3 Hall | 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM

Validation of 3D Underkeel Clearance Model with Full Scale Measurements

This presentation will shed light on an improved integrated approach for optimizing shipping channel capacity. This approach utilises DHI’s new state-of-the-art 3D under keel clearance (UKC) model Nonlinear Channel Optimization Simulator (NCOS) which can provide more accurate under keel clearance (UKC) monitoring in order to safely and economically operate.

Presented by Alex Harkin

8 May:
Mallorca Hall | 03:30 PM to 05:00 PM

Working with Nature – Case Study Fehmarn Belt Link

The world longest immersed tunnel is to be built in northern Europe and will connect Scandinavia with Germany, thus closing a major gap in the European transport network. Despite the potentially negative connotations that such a large infrastructure project may have on the environment, Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link actually fosters the development of new nature and recreational landscapes by “Working with Nature” concepts. Learn how.

Presented by Anders Bjørnshave

9 May:
Mallorca Hall | 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM

Web Based Operational System for Optimizing Ship Traffic in Depth Constricted Ports

How using an online physics based traffic management system can significantly increase port capacity to accommodate larger and deeper drafted vessels compared to historical systems. This could result in large savings in capital dredging and reductions in environmental impacts.

Presented by Simon Brandi Mortensen

10 May:
Berlin 1 Hall | 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Optimizing Pier Structures Using Dynamic Mooring Forces Modelling

The increase in ship sizes in recent years has necessitated the development of a new DHI software that calculates dynamic mooring forces. MIKE 21 Mooring Analysis (MA) helps assess the real capabilities of existing or new planned mooring facilities on piers and in harbours. Such methods can lead to more realistic loads and help determine priority for infrastructure updates.
