JLT Mobile Computers has deployed its VERSO 12 computers at International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) container terminals in Papua New Guinea.
JLT partner Autepra delivered and installed the computers, which are specialised for harsh environments, at South Pacific International Container Terminal Ltd (SPICT) in Lae and Motukea International Terminal Ltd in Port Moresby.
ICTSI is undertaking an ongoing initiative to improve the operational efficiency of SPICT, Papua New Guinea’s leading container terminal.
The operator has invested over US$4.51m in the terminal to date, in excess of its commitments for 2022 and more than half of the initial agreed outlay for operational efficiency improvements.
The delivery of the computers is meant to support the efficiency gains and ensure uninterrupted operation and seamless integration with the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS).
JLT Mobile Computers signed a five-year partnership with the Navis Ready Program in March 2019, guaranteeing JLT rugged computers’ validation for use with all major releases of the Navis N4 TOS over the next five years.
The validation means that customers can be assured that equipment from JLT Mobile Computers has passed Navis’ rigorous testing processes.
Beatrice G. Mahuru, general manager – corporate affairs at ICTSI South Pacific, said: “As maritime terminals are a central link in the supply chain, we at ICTSI South Pacific are committed to digitisation and automation to bring efficiencies into our Papua New Guinea business.”
The VERSO 12 features Intel Core i5 or E3845 quad-core processor options for demanding applications; JLT PowerTouch display technology with hardened glass for resistance to wear and tear; and rugged design for outdoor and indoor usage.
The VERSO 12 also features a 12-in sunlight readable display and integrated backup battery for uninterrupted operation.
