Port development work involves laborious activities and sub sequential use of large amount of
energy. Modular construction has facilitate labour require, energy usage, hence carbon footage has
gain approval of efficient product development in recent year. The use of such mobile equipments
equally gives advantage to port to reduce port traffic, safety preservation of environment reduction in
maintenance and berth allocation. Heavy seaborne traffic in port leads to the requirement of port
terminal development or improvement. Port terminal involved problem related to traffic and high cost.
The use of mobile floating protection facilities can offset this problem. The study involved design and
modeling of a safe loading and unloading facilities to ensure the smooth flow of the work and
reduction in the work delay. The berthing facility is moveable, floating structure that act as a protection
for ships berthing in port. The modeling involve design of that determine the safe berthing velocity and
, the berthing energy, environmental load (wind and current) and material which are the important
parameters for fender selection and to ensure that it is safe to carry out its function as loading and
unloading facilities. By using light weight less energy can be employ to build berth, and to conduct
berthing operation, and by providing safety the system can be provided discount for environmental
conservation. The result of this study hoped to improve safety and efficiency of the port operation in
handling of the ships entering and leaving the port. The model is designed for prototyping physical
system that can be use for experiments and commercialization.
