ABSTRACT
Shipyard development in Kutaraja Fishing Port is important to improve the port performance. Studies related to shipyards are mainly focused on their productivity, facility layout, production capacity, and management and planning. Meanwhile, there are still limited studies related to the influence of oceanographic factors on shipyard development. This research aims to identify the impact of oceanographic factors on shipyard industry development in Kutaraja fishing port. The research was conducted from December 2020 to March 2021. Data analyzed in this study are tide, wind, current, wave, bathymetry, and sediment composition. Tide, wind, current, and wave data were collected for the last three years from Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency. The current moves from two directions, from northeast and northwest, towards the coastal areas around the eastern part of Kutaraja fishing port, closed to the breakwater. Current in the eastern part moves faster than in the western part, and the western part of the sampling area mostly has shallow waters. The highest tide occurs at 12:00 with a water height of -0.3855 meters, and the lowest tide was at 19:00 with a water height of -1.0485 meters. Fine sand dominated the sediment in the sampling area. The result indicates that oceanographic factors are essential to be incorporated as one of the indicators for shipyard development.
