Abstract
    For the renovation of the older docks of the Port of Antwerp a turning area and the junction between docks was being redesigned. The layout of both constructions had to be adapted for the passage of u least a 230 m 40 ft deep loaded panamax buIkcarrier. To test the nautical merits of the design, the expertise of the local dock pilots and port authorities was enhanced by the use of a ship manoeuvring simulator. In the process problems were spotted and the design was improved.
