Presented here are typical port infrastructures planned and designed by JPC to support the economic activities of port and waterfront areas. The port infrastructures include access channels, navigation aids, breakwaters, seawalls, bulkheads and revetments.

In step with further economic growth of developing countries including Asian countries and current globalization of economic activities, the cargo traffic or movement between Japan and other Asian countries will be on an ever-increasing trend. At the same time, Japanese trade fully relies on the seaborne transport, reaching the level of 99.7 % of total trade in terms of weight. JPC endeavors to support the Japanese economic activities and to create an enriched society, through its performance of services for planning and design of cargo distribution bases.

JPC’s services for energy-facilities cover engineering design of thermal and nuclear power plants, oil storage terminal, and LNG receiving terminals presented here. In addition, JPC has participated in other energy-related projects for construction of port facilities for fast-breeder reactor, base port for nuclear-powered ship, coal berths, and oil berths and pipelines.

JPC has ample experience in port access roads including bridges and tunnels connecting port with its hinterlands, and also in offshore airports on artificial islands from environmental and safety viewpoints, providing consulting services in every phase-planning, study, design and construction supervision.

JPC has been engaged in engineering services for waterfront leisure facilities and landscape designs of coastal areas to respond to the demands of the time. In providing the services for building prosperous communities and landscape designs, JPC backed up by ample experience, has challenged to apply its newly developed technology, contributing to the promotion of community development.

JPC addresses the development and upgrading of fishing ports to cope with the current conversion from “wild fisheries” to “farmed fisheries”, as well as the planning and design of facilities conducive to productivity improvement of conventional fisheries.
JPC also addresses the development of fishing beaches as leisure facilities and safe fishing ports with earthquake-resistant quaywalls.

Japan suffers frequent natural disasters caused by earthquakes, typhoons and tsunamis due to its geographical, topographical, and meteorological conditions. JPC has participated in many coastal management projects to protect port areas from tsunamis, typhoon surges or spring tides. With recent re-evaluation of water-borne transport’s role played in distribution of relief supplies in emergency cases including Great Hanshin Earthquake occurred in 1995, JPC has also participated in the natural disaster management projects to cover the wider areas.

In addition to the natural disaster management services for devising countermeasures for possible disasters in port areas, JPC provides its consulting services for the post-disaster restoration. Upon occurrence of natural disaster, JPC without delay conducts site surveys, works out the restoration plan of the damaged port facilities and equipment, and provides other supporting services required for postdisaster restoration.

Large scaled and complicated numerical simulations with highspeed computers are conducted in various fields and sectors. In the port sector in which JPC is specializing, simulations are used for wave transformation, beach deformation, tsunami, structural analysis with Finite Element Method (FEM), and vibration analysis during earthquake. Present numerical simulations, however, have limitations in reproducing the complicated three-dimensional symptoms or nonlinear symptoms which should be duplicated by model tests. In addition, it is essential the mathematical models newly constructed should be supported by the data obtained through experiments. The model tests play a vital role when the experiments could not carried out with a real object.

JPC, since its establishment in 1961, has performed a variety of consulting services for port development projects in around thirty (30) foreign countries as well as in home country, enjoying a high reputation among overseas and domestic clientele for reliable services and proven expertise. List of recent overseas clients includes not only the governmental authorities executing the ODA projects, but also private industries developing the port facilities for their exclusive use.
JPC covers the wide range of specialty services in all facets of project cycle – Program, Identification, Formulation & Appraisal, Commitment & Financing, Implementation, and Evaluation.
