PORT AND WATERWAY STRUCTURES
Increasing traffic, decreasing budgets, evolution of cargoes, organisational restructuring, strategic choices… Oxand supports you in the development and realisation of your solution.
Maintenance Director Master Plan (MDM)
The Maintenance Director Master Plan provides port operators with the means to plan the necessary maintenance and/or inspection to meet their operational requirements (taking account of their evolution). In particular, it enables the anticipation and handling of a possible increase in the port’s receiving capacity (tonnage, availability, cargo types…), while simultaneously considering the ageing of structural assets (quays, pontoons, transport network, locks, dykes…).
Working with numerous ports over the world for the definition and practical application of their Maintenance Director Master Plan has allowed Oxand to capitalise on an international experience feedback in the form of an innovative numerical tool: SIMEO™ PORT.
In the face of an actual or anticipated emergency situation, the expertise of Oxand offers a solid support to define the necessary measures to take in the shortest time possible.
Oxand assures the entirety of the process from the examination of the situation (direction of inspections, study of plans…), the diagnosis of pathologies, the prediction of their evolution (probabilistic method for the evaluation of ageing, finite element analysis…) up to the creatinon of action plans (short, medium and long-term).
