TECH TOC: Automation
Luis Cabrita – Head of BD Latin America at Siemens
There are now over a dozen ways to automate a terminal, and diversification continues. What is working? Where are the challenges? What are the true Key Performance Indicators? What still needs work? Where should we go next?
This concise snapshot of the industry will shine a clear light along the path forward, so that we can focus on what truly needs to be done. Key talking points: • The latest technology in automation used in container terminals • Why is simulation essential in starting any automated container terminal development project.

Clean technologies, energy reduction & moving towards a zero-emission terminal
Andres Daboin – BD Smart Infrastructure at Siemens
The industry is evolving at an incredible pace and the need to reduce carbon emissions is of increasing importance. Governments, local and regional authorities around the world are rapidly deploying regulations and initiatives to support the adoption of eco-efficient technologies and try to shift ports and terminals away from the heavy diesel-powered equipment that it currently uses.
Now, hybrid and electrical systems are viewed as solutions to replace the heaviest transportation equipment in ports and terminals and ensure that emission targets are reached. Key talking points: • Delivering true optimization of energy-consumption • Delivering cost savings in reefer handling
Hot topics at TOC Americas 2019In 2019, TOC will once again put automation and digitalization at the heart of the event. Figuring out what is really possible with all these new technologies, at what price, and how to adapt them into – or disrupt - existing processes is now critical.
As one of the world‘s leading automation suppliers, we provide an integrated, comprehensive portfolio for all solutions created for the cranes intelligence. Our specific crane knowledge enables us to offer support from the initial planning, engineering, design, commissioning, training, parts supply and after-sales service. This ensures that your cranes reliably perform their tasks and interact efficiently. Each crane solution can be implemented with little time and effort based on standard products. The use of simulation and digital twins allows for flexibility, speed and work through scenarios. The integration of engineering tasks into a single environment provides fast commissioning and efficient crane performance.
