Abstract

The Kabil-Batam Liquid Bulk Port is a special port that serves the distribution of processed Crude Palm Oil (CPO) products or palm oil located in Kabil Village, Nongsa District, Batam City, Riau Islands, Indonesia. The purpose of this study is to determine the condition of the Kabil port in terms of depth, tidal type, distribution of sea surface currents, and wind direction and speed. The data used in this study are bathymetry, tidal, and wind data in 2020. The results of the processing show that the waters of Kabil Harbor have a depth ranging from -1.0 m to -17.0 m LWS with mixed tidal types tending to double daily. Based on the modeling of ocean currents, it is found that the direction of the surface ocean currents is irregular and divided into two directions, namely one towards the south and one towards the north. The movement of currents in Kabil waters tends to be weak due to the movement of the velocity from 0 - 1 m/s. The distribution of wind speed and direction for 15 days shows that in the waters of the Kabil-Batam CPO port, Indonesia is more dominated to the north with the highest speed or dominant value of 3.50 – 5.50 m/s at 44.0%. Based on the description, it can be concluded that the physical condition of the Kabil port using hydro-oceanography is still stated in terms of depth, tides, currents, and winds because the depth of the Kabil port can still be anchored. In addition, the current and wind speed at the port of Kabil do not have extreme values.
