The ARTEMIS model is used to numerically analyze the wave conditions near the Sabetta-Utrenniy port of different layouts. Monochromatic and spectral waves were considered. The results show that a navigation channel can not only cause strong focusing of wave energy, but also give rise to zones of reduced waves. It is important to recognize these effects and use them to optimize the project.
