A New Barge Terminal in a Residential Area (The Case of Tilburg)

The Barge Terminal Tilburg (BTT) is located in the city of Tilburg. Currently, this container terminal is operating near full capacity. Since terminal expansion is not possible, an option for the construction of a new terminal is being prepared. The problem is defined as follows: to determine the best design of the new barge terminal that offers high operational performance without exceeding the environmental standards of urban scenery. The research strives to find a balance between the operational issues and the environmental effects of the designs of the new terminal and to evaluate them on performances and noise emission.
