Seismic analysis for port design in East Timor

Seismic analysis for port design of Tibar Bay, East Timor

Cohere Consultants has carried out a number of earthquake analyzes on behalf of CDR International for an implementation design for a new container terminal and transshipment port in Tibar Bay, East Timor.

The client for CDR International is CHEC.CHEC is a Chinese contractor who works together with Worley, an engineering consultant from Australia.The project started in mid-2019.CDR has been engaged for a number of implementation optimisations, whereby Cohere Consultant was able to provide specialist advice on seismic design.

Part of the earthquake analysis was about optimalisation of the land reclamation to be carried out using stone columns.Another part was about a liquefaction and stability analysis of a borrow area to be dredged.This borrow area is used to extract material for the land reclamation.
