Indonesian port management company Pelindo 4 will deploy a solution by Nokia to provide LTE wireless connectivity for remote real-time monitoring of its crane performance and operation.
Nokia, with its partner Kurnia Energy Engineering (KEE), has deployed its 7705 Service Aggregation Router–Hm, which extends its IP/MPLS network solution services over cellular and WLAN networks, on all the cranes across the Makassar Container Terminal (TPM).
This networking capability enables Pelindo 4 to monitor container crane and rubber tire gantry crane assets from its control room in real time for dynamic control and management of container cranes.
The move aims to greater operational efficiency and improved safety, while it creates opportunities for additional use cases, including the monitoring of trucks, water pollutants and container identification.
Nokia’s holistic solution helps us get better visibility of the crane operations through 24/7 real-time data streaming. We further believe this collaboration with Nokia will pave the way for development of new business cases in the field of asset performance management,
…said Josef Benny Rohy, General Manager at Terminal Peti Kemas Makasar Pelindo 4.
Nokia has also deployed solutions for maritime that include private wireless networks at the ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge in Belgium, as well as HaminaKotka and Oulu in Finland.
Partnering with Nokia has allowed us to cater to Pelindo 4’s specific requirements to digitalize its seaport operations. Together, we aim to enhance safety and efficiency of its operations by delivering solutions that will unlock new connectivity and automation scenarios. This will further bring many new business opportunities in the era of digital transformation,
…noted Erwin Kurniawan, Director at Kurnia Energy Engineering.
