"Use of simulation and digital twins of the cranes in the yard blocks allow for flexibility, speed and work-through scenarios," explains Christian Koegl, Vice President of Siemens Cranes. "Advanced block management together with various automation modules and integrated safety, e.g. for remote control and collision prevention, will lead to safe and productive operations. "These unique features helped Siemens to be chosen as the preferred electrical and automation partner for this flagship terminal", continues Koegl.
This container terminal is developed by APM Terminals from The Hague in the Netherlands to accommodate Ultra-Large Container Ships (ULCS), which provide capacity for up to 20,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).
