Under very favourable conditions, DUKC® can allow large ships to safely sail up to 1m deeper allowing them to carry more than 15,000 extra tonnes of iron ore or coal.
This is because DUKC® scientifically models, in real time, how much under keel clearance (UKC) ships have as they come down shallow channels.
In most cases there are productivity gains because this dynamic technology allows ships to go deeper or use wider tidal windows than when sailing under fixed static UKC rules which are calculated to cover worst possible conditions and are therefore unnecessarily conservative. Every extra centimetre of draft (the depth below the waterline) that a large bulk ship can be loaded to means around an extra 150 tonnes of cargo.
This Award-winning DUKC® is the only dynamic system worldwide that has proven capacity to predict in real-time the critical vertical component of navigation (what you can’t see under the water) during the actual transit. It is so accurate that, under extreme weather conditions, a 250,000 tonne bulk carrier could negotiate a channel within a metre’s clearance to the seabed.
This proven e-Navigation technology is operating in most major Australian ports and also in New Zealand, Europe and North America. It is increasingly becoming an essential decision support and risk mitigation tool for ports and waterways worldwide because as ships get larger, UKC limits are critical.
“The system provides additional draught for port customers whilst maximizing port safety through appropriate risk management. In addition, it has reduced significantly the need and associated costs of extensive maintenance and capital dredging.”
