Proactive and Predictive Waterfront Asset Management – Port of Rotterdam Experience
It is crucial to understand the current condition state of aging port infrastructure around the world and adopt cost-effective and sustainable strategies to repair and maintain these assets. Over the past decade, considerable research was conducted on the mechanisms responsible for the deterioration of structures exposed to harsh environments, as well as evaluation condition and performance reporting procedures. Recently, a new generation of deterioration models and risk-based management approaches combined with state-of-the-art GIS technology have come to prominence. These methodologies are used on projects to assist port owners and engineers in optimizing the use of funds to keep their ports as safe and competitive as possible.
This presentation covers the use of a proactive, predictive and risk-based asset management approach, and its underlying principals in one of the world’s largest ports.
