TMEIC and Konecranes to deliver “enhanced safety and efficiency”
Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC) has been selected to provide industrial drive and automation solutions, including automation of the Landside Transfer Zone (LSTZ), for a second major expansion at Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT).
The Phase II expansion project includes 54 Konecranes Automated-Stacking Cranes (ASC) at the Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT).
TMEIC previously provided automation solutions for 52 Konecranes ASCs during Phase 1 of the project, commissioned in December 2012.
Darren Honaker, TMEIC Industrial Systems Commercial Leader, said: "TMEIC and Konecranes have worked extremely well together over the years.
"This second expansion with ADT solidifies a great partnership and we look forward to delivering another exceptional automation project for a client that trusts TMEIC to go above and beyond to meet deadlines and deliver positive results."
Jussi Sarpio, Director, ASC and RMG Cranes at Konecranes, said: "We value our partners at TMEIC because of our shared focus on delivering customer-centric services that increase the value and effectiveness of our clients' businesses.”
In addition to supplying over 300 TMEIC TMdrive®-10e2 industrial drives, Phase II automation includes TMEIC's state-of-the-art, laser-based Maxview® and Maxspeed® crane control systems for labor savings, increased yard productivity, reduced equipment maintenance and improved safety.
Equipment delivery commences in September 2019 and is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
