Join the coastal engineering professionals around the world who are using Kubla to design and plan their port infrastructure.
Easy to Use
Be up and running in an hour
Kubla Ports has been designed from the ground up to be easy to use.
The user-friendly interface allows you to define your design criteria easily and quickly, while dxf functionality allows you to bring data in from CAD files if required.
Kubla Ports uses a cutting-edge Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) engine which was developed in-house.
The TIN's which are used for calculations are exactly the same as those you see on-screen. You can even export the TIN's to dxf and check your surfaces down to individual triangles.
Share your projects
Kubla Ports can export detailed summaries (.doc, .pdf) that you can share with project stakeholders.
You can also export to CAD dxf files in either 2D or 3D, allowing you to work on the project with other software and to create impressive visualisations for presentations.
Ask us anything
Our specialist support team is ready to take your calls or emails.
We also offer all our customers free online demos to help them to get started using our software.
Designing approach channels, dredging areas and aids to navigation are all no problem. Kubla Ports has all the modules you need to get the job done.
With modular licensing and single machine/network license options we have the solution to suit you.
The Channels Module of Kubla Ports allows you to determine channel widths and depths based on the concept design methods described in PIANC's document 'Approach Channels - A Guide for Design'. Once you have defined the site conditions (bathymetry, wind, waves, etc.) and the design vessels which will use the channel the software will automatically determine required widths and depths.
Dredging volumes will also be calculated, and if you have the Nav. Markers Module you can define lateral markers.
The Dredging Module of Kubla Ports allows you to draw (or import from dxf) dredging areas, such as berth pockets and turning circles. When you have also defined the dredged level and the software will instantly calculate dredging volumes, areas and thicknesses.
The Dredging Module will also calculate the volume of materials in the side slopes based on the batter angle which you define.
The Nav. Markers Module of Kubla Ports allows you to draw Aids to Navigation on the screen and specify what type of marker they are. The seabed level at the location of the marker will be automatically calculated.
The Aids to Navigation can be exported to a summary which will list details of each marker, as well as to a CAD dxf file, which can be used with CAD software to create impressive visualisations for presentations.
