For all types of marine transportations along any distance\, safety and efficiency are cri tical. Towing and installation of large cargoes and facilities involves a broad spectrum of expertise and companies. This presentation aims to give an overview of designing marine transports\, and some of the questions tha t come up during analysis\, such as:

  • What are the different ways to design my transport and installation operations.
  • Wh at are the risks in the design (e.g.\, weather\, allowed delay in schedule \, etc.)?
  • What should a ship do if it encounters a storm? Should it try to outr un\, go around\, or head for shelter?

In addition to this overview\, the presenter wi ll share some of his experience from the perspective of the SafeTrans User Group. This group has been developing the SafeTrans tool since 2001 to optimise towed transport s\, using weather hindcast/forecast data\, dynamic seakeeping models\, and a captain decision mimic module. Even after nearly 20 years\, development s are continuing as weather models get more detailed and voyage routing al gorithms get more sophisticated.
