Terminal infrastructure

With the aid of tables the complete terminal infrastructure is recorded in the model: tanks, berths, jetty lines, pumping platforms, pumps, pumpheaders, headers and connection lines.

The model contains a navigation system called the “Path finder” that determines all possible routes between tanks and berths and puts them in a table. When a vessel arrives the most optimal available route for pumping the product is chosen from this table. All equipment that is part of this route is occupied when pumping starts.

When putting together the route table the Pathfinder takes into account constraints like a maximum number of pieces of equipment, use only equipment of the same product group and use a suction and a pressure connection. The simulation model reads this route table before a run is started.
