Kalmar and Navis introduce OneTerminal, the industry’s first integrated offering for automated terminals
9th June 2015
Kalmar and Navis, both part of Cargotec, introduced Kalmar OneTerminal at TOC Europe today. Kalmar OneTerminal is an integrated automation solution for the container terminal industry consisting of Kalmar and Navis software, equipment and services. Developed out of years of experience, Kalmar OneTerminal is the industry’s first integrated offering under one roof, combining software systems, equipment and services both during project implementation and after the go-live. With one key contact, one core team, Kalmar OneTerminal makes automation accessible, mitigates the risks involved and helps customers realise the full potential of their terminal operations.
“We believe that the port industry is at the start of the next big wave of automation. Kalmar and Navis as global technology leaders in the field are strongly contributing to this transformation and addressing the challenges the industry is facing. Our answer is Kalmar OneTerminal which focuses on providing the seamless integration of the technologies which enable fully automated terminal operations,” says Frank Kho, Vice President, Offering Development at Kalmar.
“Kalmar OneTerminal is an integrated offering and an approach by which Kalmar and Navis experience and expertise are applied in partnership with the terminal to help realise its potential. Whether implementing a greenfield terminal or converting an existing one, Kalmar OneTerminal ensures that all automation systems work together optimally,” continues Andy Barrons, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Navis.
Kalmar OneTerminal offers initial concepts for automatic stacking crane (ASC), AutoStrad and AutoRTG terminals based on the unique integrated combination of Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) and Kalmar’s terminal logistic system TLS. A OneTerminal project will cover the automation of the container handling equipment, the control systems with Kalmar TLS software, the Navis N4 TOS, as well as project services that will support the terminal through the design and implementation phases. Kalmar Care support and maintenance services ensure optimum performance throughout the entire lifecycle of the solution.
Kalmar has made a significant investment in the Technology and Competence Centre in Tampere, Finland, where a combination of products can be tested in both virtual environments as well as real-world scenarios using live equipment and containers, including the next generation ASCs and AutoShuttles alongside process automation, TLS and N4. The Kalmar pre-integration program ensures that Kalmar tests the interoperability of all the major system components in various combinations to cover the specific OneTerminal scenarios.
Kalmar is the global leader in port automation with several industry firsts in this area and major recent references from automated terminal projects worldwide. Navis is the global technology standard for terminal operating systems with more than 250 deployments globally.
Kalmar and Navis are exhibiting at the TOC Europe exhibition in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, during 9-11 June. Visit Kalmar at stand B40 and Navis at stand B54 for more information or go to website www.kalmarglobal.com/oneterminal.
