Abstract: The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of the cyclones and its influence on port performance. The techniques of percentages and frequencies are applied to 141 cyclones as a sample, obtained from various cyclones happened around the world. The results identify and measure the factors that characterize the operational factors and affects port performance. Factors effecting including service level, partner network, ship services, cargo services, logistics services and advanced services, affect port performance, operational performance, effectiveness and efficiency. The primary contribution of this study deals with analysing the criticality of the cyclone and taking the appropriate measures, considering wind speeds ranging from 20 to 350 km/h. PYE (Port and Yard Equipment) which sub part of the equipment should be locked on safety measures and are more likely to get effected by the wind speeds and the sub equipment parts need to belocking considered are long travel, slew and boom conveyor.
Keywords: Port and yard Equipment’s, stacker cum reclaimers, long travel, Slew, Boom Conveyor.
