Abstract

The container sector has been steeply growing since its dawn, and it has almost reached a climax in terms of handling mega containerships at existing ports. In that respect the offshore port system presented here can offer operational advantages. Furthermore, it can bring improvements to the utilisation of ultra large containerships and the enhanced energy efficiency they introduce. In this framework, this paper presents a cost analysis of the possible offshore port systems including their investment cost. This research is based on data from relevant projects and studies coupled with a number of assumptions to be presented. The results suggest that the offshore container port system can play a remarkable role to reduce energy consumption in the container shipping.
