ABB’s Remote Crane Operator Stories series (#RemoteCraneOperators) has begun with Jan Peeman, an employee of APM Terminals, who has moved containers for 13 years.
In a video, Peeman, an operator for the cranes of Maasvlakte II — a fully automated container facility in the Netherlands, has shared his experience of moving from a crane cabin to a control room.
ABB’s stories will continue with the stories of two more crane operators.

ABB Marine&Ports recently released another video that allows viewers to take a 360° virtual tour of the Maasvlakte II container terminal that Peeman works at.
Its Senior Vice President, Uno Bryfors, has also explained how and why automation is shaping how terminals handle containers in ABB Ports’ Eye on Automation Port Technology video.
