First ATT docking station delivered

Gaussin Manugistique has successfully tested and handed over the first ATT Docking Station to PT Pelebuhan Indonesia (Persero) (IPC III) at its new terminal in Lamong Bay, Surabaya.

During a ceremony attended by IPC III President Director Djarwo Surjanto and Terminal Tekluk Lamong (TTL) President Director Mr Prasetyadi, the manned ATT’s demonstrated Gaussin’s “hands free” system to reverse the machines into the docking station fully automatically as the container is raised. The ATT then lowers the container on to the docking station and drives away from underneath. The ATT also demonstrated the reverse procedure for picking a container from the docking station. 

In a statement IPC II said the ATT system was much more cost effective than a straddle carrier system, with the steel infrastructure for one complete ASC interchange zone costing $100,000 (6 ATT lanes) and each ATT costing $230,000 per unit. TTL has ordered 50 ATTs for its new terminal.

Gaussin is also working with TTL to study full automation. In late December Gaussin announced the parties had signed a letter of intent to “study the desirability of fully automating the terminal for heightened productivity and safety.” The agreement covers testing activities and terminal simulation and, as part of their partnership, TTL has been granted an exclusive license for Gaussin products in Indonesia. This includes ATTs and systems developed for logistics, warehousing and airport applications by Gaussin and another partner, BA Systèmes.
