Kalmar and Navis, both part of Cargotec, have recently introduced Kalmar OneTerminal at TOC Europe. Kalmar OneTerminal is an integrated automation solution for the container terminal industry consisting of Kalmar and Navis software, equipment and services.
PTI previously reported on Navis agenda for TOC Europe 2015, where they will be participating in several key sessions at the event.
Developed out of years of experience, Kalmar OneTerminal is the industry's first integrated offering under one roof, combining software systems, equipment and services both during project implementation and after the go-live stage.
With one key contact and one core team, the Kalmar OneTerminal makes automation accessible, mitigates the risks involved and helps customers realise the full potential of their terminal operations.
Frank Kho, Vice President, Offering Development at Kalmar, said: “We believe that the port industry is at the start of the next big wave of automation. Kalmar and Navis as global technology leaders in the field are strongly contributing to this transformation and addressing the challenges the industry is facing.
“Our answer is Kalmar OneTerminal which focuses on providing the seamless integration of the technologies which enable fully-automated terminal operations.”
Andy Barrons, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Navis, said: “Kalmar OneTerminal is an integrated offering and an approach by which Kalmar and Navis' experience and expertise are applied in partnership with the terminal to help realise its potential.
“Whether implementing a greenfield terminal or converting an existing one, Kalmar OneTerminal ensures that all automation systems work together optimally.”
Kalmar OneTerminal offers initial concepts for the automatic stacking crane, AutoStrad and AutoRTG terminals based on the integrated combination of Navis N4 terminal operating system and Kalmar's terminal logistic system TLS.
A OneTerminal project will cover the automation of the container-handling equipment, the control systems with Kalmar TLS software, the Navis N4 TOS, as well as project services that will support the terminal through the design and implementation phases.
In other news, Kalmar has introduced its next generation automatic stacking crane system at the TOC Europe exhibition in Rotterdam. By enabling smooth and fast automation deployment, it allows terminals to deliver high throughput as well as a predictable and reliable performance.
Raimo Ukkonen, Vice President of ASCs at Kalmar, said: “With our latest investment finalised by 2016, we will have a complete end-to-end ASC automation system in-house, featuring the new 5th generation ASC crane. This unique testing setup is expected to cut core system integration time by at least 20 percent.”
Kalmar and Navis are exhibiting at the TOC Europe exhibition in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, during 9-11 June. Visit Kalmar at stand B40 and Navis at stand B54.
