Description: Technical report
Port Jersey, located in New York Harbor, is being evaluated for deepening and realignment. The purpose of the proposed improvements is to allow a large class of container ships to use the port. The realignment is necessary because the future ships will be too long to use the existing turning basin and will have to back out of the port. To evaluate these improvements a real-time ship simulation study was undertaken. Simulation models were developed for both Port Jersey’s present and future conditions. Pilots from New York Harbor operated the simulator as they would in real life. Based upon these simulations, a final improved channel was developed.
