Industry Voices: The Future of Automation
At the Explore Automation event in Tampere Finland in October 2019, Kalmar brought together a diverse group of industry professionals to a panel discussion on the future of automation.
Electrification and automation offer significant financial advantages for terminals operating RTGs. The choice of the crane electrification solution needs to be considered carefully while taking into account the automation level and development roadmap of the entire terminal.
As complex and high-tech as today’s terminal automation technology is, it would be nowhere without the skill and dedication of the engineers and support teams that take care of it. Kalmar’s automation support team is available around the clock to support customers all over the world.
A typical modern container terminal might be home to a huge variety of complex technologies and equipment, but its ultimate goal is simple: get boxes off a ship or railroad car, through the yard and send them on their way as quickly as possible.
When implementing a new terminal or assessing the impact of changes on an existing one, emulation is a powerful tool that is worth its weight in gold. It provides an environment that’s as close to a real working terminal as it’s possible to get without actually building one.
Fifty years on from its introduction, the Kalmar straddle carrier is now a textbook example of what can be achieved with hybrid drivelines. Almost 300 hybrid versions have been ordered and delivered to date, including 43 to DP World Antwerp Gateway.
