1 Trends in Container Terminal Design in the Middle East Seatrade Middle East Maritime 29 October 2014 Joost Achterkamp Managing Director Solid Port Solutions Dubai,UAE

2 Introduction Joost Achterkamp 23 years experience with fully automated container terminals with various roles in engineering, operations and project management Proven track record for on time & within budget delivery of large scale fully- and semi-automated container terminals worldwide (Euromax Terminal, Rotterdam and Khalifa Port, Abu Dhabi) Highly experienced with managing complex port projects with multi-lingual suppliers. Excellent network of specialized persons for automated container terminal projects Since January 2013 Managing Director of Solid Port Solutions

3 Trends in Terminal development 1. Going “Automated” 2. Going “Green” 3. Increased vessel sizes 4. Higher KPI’s 5. Higher Security Demands

4 1. Going Automated Trends:  Worldwide almost every Greenfield terminal project is considering automation  New technical designs and solutions are introduced  Automation solutions for Brownfield terminals are available  Remote STS operation is available and first introduced in Rotterdam APMT MV2 and Dubai Jebel Ali T3.  OCR on STS cranes is becoming standard functionality  System integration and interfacing is rapidly developing to a professional level  Software testing is recognized as a key factor for a successful go-live Benefits of Automation:  Safer  Cleaner  Reliable performance  Lower OPEX  Longer lifetime

6 2. Going “Green” Trends:  Almost all operators have introduced Sustainability as a Corporate Strategy.  Sustainability is becoming a key criteria for the award of terminal concessions  New terminals are focusing on Electrical Equipment  Environmental conditions play a important role for the location of new terminals and many times the environmental impact of building new facilities must be compensated with new nature programs.  Zero CO2 emission programs are becoming popular  Automation helps to minimize energy consumption  LNG trucks are being used especially in China Benefits of a Green Terminal:  ZERO Emission  Better working environment for labor  Lower OPEX  No Noise

8 3. Increase of vessel and call sizes Bigger vessels require:  Higher berth productivity  Bigger STS cranes  Bigger call sizes  More throughput per berth per year

9 4. Higher KPI’s Trends:  Improved throughput figures  15-20,000 TEU/ha/yr > 30-35,000 TEU/ha/yr  1,000 TEU/m quay/yr > 2,000 TEU/m quay/yr  Improved productivity  STS: mph > mph  TVT: min > min  Dwell time days > 4-6 days  Cost reduction on all areas of the process The new figures require a different way of designing container terminals:  Compact design with a dense stacking area  High standard of automation to eliminate the “human factor”  Bigger STS cranes to handle the latest generation of container vessels  OCR systems at the terminal boundaries  State of the art TOS systems with optimized scheduling algorithms

10 In order to receive vessels on international voyages it must be, like today, secured based on the provisions of the ISPS code. In order to meet the requirements of CSI (Container Security Initiative) a robust cargo security system based on core elements of the US cargo security strategy - 24hr rule, CSI, C-TPAT must be implemented 5. Higher Security Demands Higher Security standards will require:  A well organized and structured terminal process  Limited involvement of humans  Fenced and monitored stacking areas  Automated processes will increase the safety & security on a terminal

11 The approach of Solid Port Solutions: Step 1:Analyze your project Step 2: Advise on the project organization Step 3:Check the availability of experienced staff within your own company Step 4:Review the project scope and focus on the main deliverables Step 5:Form a team of own staff and Solid Port Solutions experts Step 6:Take responsibility of the delivery of the agreed scope Step 7:Team up with consultants, contractors and suppliers GOOD TEAMWORK with all parties involved. Detailed control of the INTERFACES. -
