Hi Tech Solutions’ automation concept selected by TTI Algeciras

Hi-Tech Solutions Europe (HTSE), in conjunction with Identec Solutions and ABB will provide the total solution as support systems, with a Terminal Operating System (TOS) as Master, called ATHOS, and developed by IT Korean Company Cyberlogitec Ltd.

Hi Tech Solutions Europe will deliver its SeeCrane OCR and for the eight ZPMC ship to shore cranes and SeeGate OCR and damage inspection system, driver pedestals for the TTI Algeciras Terminal Gate. Identec Solutions will deliver its IntelliFIND Real Time Locating System (RTLS) for the ship to shore crane and yard operations.

Shuttle carriers will be precisely located under the quay cranes and matched to containers automatically scanned by the HTSE Optical Character Recognition system. In the yard, the Identec Solutions RFID/RTLS based system will track the location and status of all shuttles and containers.

In conjunction with ABB, Identec Solutions will also providing a new traffic control system to ensure correct delivery and retrieval of containers at 32 water and land-side automated storage crane transfer blocks. The Global Control System middleware solution from HTSE will link the IntelliFIND RTLS and ASC traffic subsystems with TTIA TOS (ATHOS).

The contract was awarded to, and is being managed by HTSE. “The IntelliFIND RTLS is a breakthrough technology in tracking systems for container handling equipment and we see significant opportunity in quayside automation. Combined with OCR our RTLS delivers real ROI, increased safety and improved asset utilisation.” Said Michel Demeyer, HTSE Director Port Solutions
