A Study on Necessity and Action Plan for Maintaining Port Function in Preparation for an Earthquake
Writer 최고관리자 Date 2018-02-01
Report No. 2017-16 Research Manager Woo Seon,Kim

Summary


The main contents of the study are as follows; ‘Chapter 1
Introduction’, ‘Chapter 2 Current status of earthquake in Korea and
the response system’, ‘Chapter 3 Current status of earthquake in
Japan and response system’, ‘Chapter 4 Establishing a plan against
earthquakes in Korean ports and a feasibility analysis’, and ‘Chapter
5 Conclusion and policy suggestions.’
- Chapter 1 includes the background and necessity of the study, its
purpose and scope as well as its methodologies. The study
distinguishes itself from other studies by reviewing existing
studies.
- Chapter 2 looks into the status and possibility of earthquake
taking place in Korea. An earthquake in the magnitude of over
7.0 occurs on the Korean Peninsula once every 400 years. Since
an earthquake took place about 380 years ago, there is a high
probability of an earthquake on such a scale is in the making.
- The study reviews relevant laws, the current status of systems in
Korea and earthquake related manuals in order to prepare for
seismic events. According to the results, Korea’s preparation falls
far short of what may be considered sufficient, especially when it
comes to a large-scale earthquake as relevant data are organized
in the form of simple manuals. The loss cost in the event of an
earthquake at Busan port is estimated to be 70 trillion won
considering that the port has to shut down for 3 months. This
chapter provides suggestions based on these challenges.
- Chapter 3 covers the status and response systems of Japan for
maintaining the functions of ports in the event of a large-scale
earthquake. Thus, it reviews manuals of disaster prevention bases
in coastal areas and plans for quake-resistant ports. Having
established a guideline for maintaining ‘strong ports against
earthquakes committing to their own duty’, Japan has prepared
and managed against earthquakes at ports. Japan’s plan contains
plans of installing quake-resistant reinforced quays and cranes
from the perspective of hardware and their operational methods.
Based on this, this study presents implications and directions for
its application in Korea.
- Chapter 4 establishes and suggests measures to maintain the
functions of the supply chain of port logistics in the event of a
large-scale earthquake in Korea’s container terminals. It also
presents plans of establishing quake-resistant reinforced quays
and cranes. More specifically, the study suggests the
establishment of 14 container berths at Busan Port, 4 berths at
Gwangyang Port and 4 berths at Incheon Port. The study also
suggests the establishment of quake-resistant reinforced cranes,
calculating relevant costs. Based on this assessment, feasibility
analysis is carried out, proving that it has economic feasibility in
the event of a large-scale earthquake like which is seen in the
400 year cycle.
- Chapter 5 covers conclusion and policy suggestions, presenting
policy measures to upgrade risk management systems for the
supply chain of Korea’s port logistics.
