MedPort Tangier makes use of Siemens technology for automation

Feb 28, 2017: Siemens’ scope of supply for APM Terminals MedPort Tangier includes the electrical and automation systems as well as the engineering and commissioning of 32 automated stacking cranes deployed in 16 intelligent yard blocks, which will be delivered in cooperation with innovative crane manufacturer Hans Künz GmbH, Hard (Austria).

Siemens will also supply electrical systems used in 12 remote-controlled double trolley ship-to-shore cranes (STS). This order was placed by the Chinese Zhenhua Port Machinery Company (ZPMC), one of the world’s biggest crane builders. The terminal, to be opened in 2019, will be the world’s first transshipment hub featuring an end loading yard concept.

 “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.

 The MedPort Tangier 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).
