SAAM Terminals, Next Port AI collaborate on maritime digital solutions

SAAM Terminals has closed a global collaboration agreement with Next Port AI to implement its new platform that combines Digital Twin and Artificial Intelligence technologies.

The platform provides a digital replica of the port’s physical assets, processes and systems that is created from real-time data collected from sensors and other Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and used to analyse, predict, and optimise the port’s performance.

This solution, which will be implemented in two pilots, will enhance operational excellence and optimise the Terminal Operating System (TOS), which manages and automates the operations platform across its terminals.

By integrating a sophisticated data platform, NextPort AI will connect THE TOS and other critical systems, adhering to industry standards such as DCSA and TIC4.0, to support decision-making and exception handling in the terminal’s control rooms. The goal of this integration is to maximise asset performance and streamline centralised planning.

The system uses Machine Learning algorithms and Artificial Intelligence techniques, fundamental to processing information and generating valuable background with advanced analytics.

The CEO of SAAM Terminals, Mauricio Carrasco, said: “The implementation of state-of-the-art digital technologies in our terminals marks a significant milestone in the evolution of our organisation.

“Real-time data capture and the utilisation of artificial intelligence will provide us with invaluable insights into our ports, enabling us to make better-informed decisions regarding operations, maintenance and customer service processes.”

This alliance will reportedly connect, transform and enable the use of data to drive data intelligence in the operating systems of the company’s terminals.

Moffatt & Nichol Global Director Port and Terminal Development, Christian Blauert stated: “SAAM Terminals’ commitment to operational excellence and technological advancement aligns perfectly with our vision for DigitalTwin and AI innovation.

“We are proud to collaborate closely to transform our cutting-edge developments into practical customer value and ultimately drive industry transformation.”

Last month, SAAM Terminals invested $500,000 in a simulator for CM Labs Simulators to train new crane operators while enhancing current ones with improvement exercises.
