Study of spreading of a thermal plume for an industrial process

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

LNG Terminal of FOS CAVAOU (FRANCE)

 

Client : CREOCEAN

Date of completion : 2021 - 2022



Globocean has performed a study of thermal spreading in order to ensure that the colder water rejected by an industrial process of re-gasification does not impact the biocenosis of the Gulf of Fos sur Mer.

The different steps followed for the realization of this study, based on numerical modelling, are the followings:

  • Modelling of the offshore sea-states (WaveWatchIII software)

  • Wave propagation nearshore (SWAN software)

  • Numerical simulation of the tidal streams and wind driven currents (TELEMAC 3D software)

  • Validation of the hydrodynamic modelling thanks to current and temperature in-situ measurements

  • Study of the spreading of the thermal plumes according to different pre-defined meteorological scenarios (TELEMAC 3D software)
