CERTUS Port Automation has been selected to supply gate and crane OCR systems for Khalifa Port in the UAE.
Nerthlands-based CERTUS Port Automation has been selected to deliver the automated gate solution as well as the crane OCR system for the STS Cranes at the second phase expansion of Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) facility at Khalifa Port in the UAE.
“A total of 10 STS Crane OCR systems will be delivered as well as six new Gate OCR portals accompanied by eight new gate lanes. The latest CERTUS Gate Operating System will integrate with the TOS to assure the hand-off procedure at over 200 truck transfer points,” Certus stated.
CERTUS delivered the gate system or the first phase of the ADT Terminal, and Chief Commercial Officer Dave Walraven said this was a key factor in its selection for the second phase. “I am extremely proud of this award as it proves that our equipment is performing well in harsh environments like the one Khalifa Port operates in, it also shows the customer is satisfied with the performance of our systems over the past 6 years.
“Abu Dhabi Terminal was the first to adopt Crane OCR technology in the region. Continuing with Crane OCR confirms such systems contribute to the terminal’s operational goals.” Walraven said.
For Phase 2 at ADT Certus will supply its latest gate kiosk design an its “deep learning” OCR engine. “Over the last years, all of CERTUS’ OCR engines, meaning both Gate, STS Crane, Rail as well as Yard Cranes, have been moved to deep learning algorithm engines, assuring even higher recognition rates and making additional features available. In combination with the latest camera technology, higher productivity is achieved by means of accurate data capturing and automated gate inspections,” CERTUS concluded.
