Capacity Assessment Study

Capacity Assessment Study

Assessment of the ore transport capacity of the Société ferroviaire et portuaire de Pointe-Noire.

DESCRIPTION

SYSTRA Canada was mandated by the SFPPN to carry out a time and movement study of iron ore transport operations for its clients MFQ and Tacora, using discrete event modelling.

  • Identify different operating modes for the transport operations of the two mining companies;
  • Calculate the theoretical capacity of each mode of operation;
  • Develop a dynamic model of the railway infrastructure and train movements;
  • Perform simulations for each operating mode option and with different car fleets;
  • Recommend ways to improve cycle time.
