Visy-OY will supply its Visy Access GOS (Gate Operating System) with OCR for both the gate operation and STS cranes for Prima Multi Terminal (PMT) in Indonesia.
Finland-based Visy Oy has been awarded the contract in cooperation with Konecranes and PT. Primus Indonesia. PMT is a joint venture between state-owned construction company PT Waskita Karya Tbk, state-owned property developer PT PP Tbk (PTPP) and port operator PT Pelindo I.
“The Visy Access GOS will consist of a single, integrated system for quayside and gate operations. On the quay, the 3 quay cranes will be equipped with TopView spreader OCR and SideView track-mounted OCR cameras for container identification. Together, the system will image five sides of the boxes during single-pick operations and 4-sides during twin lifts. The images will also be used for damage inspection purposes to help the terminal shed liability for boxes that arrive damaged,” VISY said.
The truck gate is configured with four high-resolution, line scan portals, with two inbound and two outbound lanes. Each portal will be equipped with OCR for license plate recognition and container identification, and line scan imaging technology for damage inspection purposes. “There will also be 4 driver kiosks to digitize the gate processes and reduce the need for gate personnel. All Visy technology will operate on a single platform and communicate with the RBS terminal operating system (TOS),” VISY added.
“PMT plans to grow to 1.5 million TEU/year,” said Asmo Budi, Operation Director. “With the investment in the Visy system we will be able to scale our business to meet our aggressive growth strategy. We have strong product support in Indonesia with Visy’s local partner and integrator, PT. Harbarindo Baharitama.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Visy to help a major terminal operator scale their business to the next level,” says Petri Granroth, CEO of Visy. “By utilizing SideView and TopView together on the quay, we will deliver the highest levels of automation available. Between the quay and gate technologies, Visy will ensure that PMT reaches their productivity potential.
The project is scheduled to start in first quarter of 2019 and conclude in 2019.
