Description: Technical report
The Arthur Kill Channel is a 13.2-mile segment of the New York and New Jersey Channels along the west side of Staten Island. The reach under consideration for this study extends from Newark Bay to Howland Hook marine terminal, and includes the North of Shooters Island and Elizabethport Reaches. The proposed improvements for this study include deepening of these reaches of the Arthur Kill to -50 ft mlw to accommodate the post panamax container vessels expected at Howland Hook. Minor widening for the channel alignment was also considered. To evaluate these improvements a real-time ship simulation study was undertaken. Simulation models were developed for both Arthur Kill’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.
