Siport21 releases new software to improve port planning and traffic management

Siport21 releases software to improve port planning

Siport 21 has developed Siflow21, a new analysis and simulation maritime traffic software which compares different layout alternatives of waterways or port areas to maximise operational efficiency.

In a statement, the company said Siflow21 builds up a virtual representation of the vessels traffic in a port or complex waterway with concurrent traffic.

Based on the results of the analysis, the port community can plan future investments in infrastructure, including deepening or enlargement of navigation channels and expanding port access.

The platform also makes it easier to analyse management or operational optimization, such as traffic, tidal window access, crossing rules and cargo priority.

Additionally, SiPort21 said its technology will make it easier to measure a port’s maximum capacity of a and identify bottlenecks before they happen.

Furthermore, it can prevent congestion by optimising ship access planning and predicting high volumes of traffic, planning new terminal-builds and identifying interferences between operations, as well as evaluating the cost-benefit balance of the investments.

The company said it has built a traffic prediction model for the Plata and Parana Rivers, Argentina, with the aim of evaluating the impact of planned dredging works and assessing sites for infrastructure development.
