‘Moving container terminals to the 21st century’ at TOC Europe

ICT Group was present at the TOC Europe 2019 in Rotterdam Ahoy. Here we informed you about the possibilities within Digital Twin, Internet of Things, Middleware, Digital Transformation, Deep Learning Solutions and other Smart Solutions that ICT Group and OrangeNXT offer you.

In addition to our stand we informed you during the TECH TOC conference. TECH TOC is a conference for the stakeholders in port and terminal industry to come together, share experiences and expertise and map out solutions to common current and future challenges.

Presentation TECH TOC: Moving container terminals to the 21st century
Automating operations on a container terminal is hardly new nowadays. However, standard solutions do not always apply or offer only part of a solution. This means that some customization (or a lot) is still necessary. Furthermore, as more and more systems on a terminal are becoming automated, it turns out that people on a terminal do more than just their jobs.

The standard-off-the-shelf solutions only replace the main task its human predecessor fulfilled, but the employee did more than just that. Employees also notice things happening on the terminal or, more importantly, not happening. Automated systems do not.
With more and more automation based on products from different vendors, the number of eyes on the terminal diminishes and so the number of people noticing something is wrong (or will go wrong if nothing changes) also goes down.

In this presentation we have showed how we are working on automated terminals based both standard and custom-made terminals without losing that invaluable insight if all systems are working happily together.

OrangeNXT and Ampelmann: To transfer employees safely to and from offshore work sites

Ferrying workers from the shore to various offshore facilities – including drilling rigs and wind turbines – has presented many companies with challenges for decades. In the past, many businesses relied on helicopters or personnel baskets and swing ropes to shuttle workers between platforms and ships. However, even in ideal circumstances this comes with a fair share of health and safety risks for employees: in a full 20 per cent of cases, bad weather and/or rough seas rule out the safe use of these methods.

OrangeNXT (an ICT Group company) developed conNXT, which is an IoT solution which can help Ampelmann to use data to improve the performance of its gangway. conNXT is a ready-to-use platform for remote monitoring, asset management and predictive maintenance and can be adapted to specific requirements with minimal effort.

The conNXT solution allows Ampelmann to monitor their systems, improve their preventive maintenance programmes, and focuses on putting preventive maintenance into practice.

Smart technology to make roads safer

When BAM Infra Nederland, a multinational construction company, needed a more efficient and cost-effective way to visually inspect and maintain asphalt paving, it turned to OrangeNXT (an ICT Group company), a leading software integrator based in the Netherlands. Working together, the two companies developed a smart solution that uses Microsoft Azure, machine learning, and AI to train specially designed algorithms to accurately detect and classify various types of damage on paved surfaces. The new solution improves the speed, quality, efficiency, and accuracy of visual road checks, enables predictive asphalt maintenance, and reduces costs—freeing inspectors to focus their expertise where it is really needed.
