A port is an important infrastructure for shipping activities where a process of loading/unloading goods is taken place. Therefore, a port basin must be maintained from sedimentation due to waves and tides. A breakwater which is commonly implanted along the basin sides may also serves as the sedimentation protection, such as in the PIM Port. The port is also vulnerable to extreme wave as it was affected by the 2004 Tsunami with a major wave’s impact damage on buildings surrounding the area. The impact of waves and tides may produce sedimentation in the basin. The purpose of this study is to assess the sedimentation which occur due to normal waves and tides in the port basin and to predict how much sedimentation may occur in the next 5 and 10 year. The assessment is based on the software Delft3D simulation. It was found that sedimentation occurred in the PIM port basin with an average sedimented volume of 932,078 m3/year. The value can be considered as the initial stage of sedimentation for further study on modelling the impact due to the Tsunami wave.
