Five shortlisted for TT Club safety award

Five entries have been shortlisted for the TT Club Innovation in Safety Award. The Winner and Highly Commended entries will be presented with their awards by Joseph Westwood-Booth, International Maritime Organisation on Tuesday 3rd October after Day 1 of the ICHCA International Conference 2017 in Las Palmas

The five shortlisted entries in alphabetical are:

  • APM Terminals Zeebrugge: A new method of twin lift detection measures the distance (through sensors) between the spreader and the top of the container, and if the distance is more then around 30 cms, operation is stopped. With this solution, the gap can already be detected in the cell guides. TT Club has previously highlighted incidents where crane operators believe they are lifting a 40ft from the cells when in fact the lift is 2 x 20ft, due to the absence of a TTDS, or defects with the TTDS in certain atmospheric conditions.
  • Hapag-Lloyd Cargo Patrol: With the Cargo Patrol system it is possible to detect undeclared and misdeclared restricted commodities. With the Cargo Patrol search engine, risk to crew, vessels, the environment and to customers is significantly reduced by early detection.
  • Indurad: The Indurad radar system acts as a collision avoidance and a 3D scanning system to provide the operator all the data that he needs to "see" and "feel" the machine during operation.
  • Safety Ammo: Through a combination of RFID and radar technologies, the Smart Pinning Station was introduced to create a safe area with proximity control for the stevedores interacting with large machinery within the wharf.
  • ShoreTension: With ShoreTension, ships of any size can be firmly anchored to the quay which significantly reduces movement caused by strong winds, currents, swell or passing ships. ShoreTension promotes unhindered quay crane operations and significantly reduces the risk of damage during unloading and loading.
