Human Factors and Training for Shipping and Port Operators

  PTI Edition 74 - AI & Automation

Human Factors training is a special type of safety training that focuses on improving an organisation’s ability to tackle the human, organisational and socio-technical risks that it faces on an everyday basis. HF training has been mandated in the aviation sector for almost 20 years.

Something New For The Crane Retrofit Market

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

The TMdrive®-10e2-DP is intended for use in crane modernisation projects where the existing DC motors will be retained. It has the advantage of common hardware for both the AC and DC motors and an easy upgrade from DC to AC at a future date if desired.

The New Era of Container Shipping

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

In the new era we see, vendors of solutions will date to venture out their niches and look for solutions that connect and interchange information in real time to provide actionable visibility and enable efficient decision making. These solutions will be possible because new standards for information exchange and a set of common semantics have evolved.

Leveraging Virtual Reality

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

The perception of automation is that robots relieve human beings from repetitive tasks and that process automation brings stability and predictable performance to a container terminal, thereby increasing safety. What we often fail to mention is that even with the implementation of automation, accidents will still occur and technology can still fail.

Port Security Through Innovative E-Learning

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Maritime Security and particularly the security of port facilities and ships assume significant importance in the light of security challenges facing them like terrorism and piracy, among others and consequentially training of maritime security personnel takes centre-stage.

Consistent Training: The Key to Port Success

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Today’s trainee is Rory, and it's his very first time operating a ship-to-shore crane. Yet, in gusting 40mph winds in a cab 53 metres from the Liverpool quayside, he's already moved five stacks of 40ft containers from a mega-ship sitting in the River Mersey to a waiting trailer below on the new £400m Liverpool2 container terminal.

How Simulation Improves Port Operations

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Vessel sizes have increased exponentially due in part to the new Panama Canal. But even before it opened, the pressure was there for larger ships. In the 70s, we saw larger tankers, VLCCs and ULCCs appeared at our sea buoys.

Virtual Reality: The Next Evolution in Operator Training

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

A VR training system brings four primary advantages; cost effectiveness, field of view, parallax, and depth perception. Traditional simulators use projectors or flat panel displays to provide a view into the virtual world.

Training Solutions for A Changing Industry

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Terminal operators and port authorities have been focused on the intricacies and economies of the public-private evolution of seaports. However, for the most part, the learning needs of the workforce have yet to be effectively or broadly addressed.

Maintenance of Automated Terminals

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

When converting a manual container terminal to automation, the first thing that comes to mind is installing automated equipment and building the infrastructure needed to run it

Power Up Your TOS

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

There are two factors that impact decision-making in terminal operations: complexity and unpredictability. Complexity is straight forward; how complicated is the terminal environment

Training and Simulation Tools

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Port projects are confronted by a growing scarcity of prime locations, increasing environmental constraints, limited space for expansion, along with the uncertain impacts of climate change and fundamental changes in ICT systems.

A Patchy Implementation: A Global Perspective

  Edition Online

Holman Fenwick Wilan is a London based lawyer firm for international commerce, in this paper the SOLAS amendment is discussed and how authorities will be publishing their requirements shortly for implementation and enforcement in their jurisdictions, leaving very little time for the industry to action these and be ready for July 1. It is clear that different approaches and timetables are being followed in different jurisdictions.

Container VGM: One Month In

  Edition Online

ICHCA provides container solutions for container handling, It has been almost a month since the inception of the IMO’s SOLAS Amendment requiring shippers to verify the gross mass of a packed container which came into force on July 1, 2016. Prior to the event itself, many in the shipping community were in near uproar citing a lack of communication, a lack of wide consultation on the measures and a lack of individual government preparedness for this new law
