Potash & Sulphur Terminal

Terminal added additional material handling capabilities. Thus the shiploader boom needed to be replaced. With the indurad remote control system to control the shiploader from an office, the operator cabin on the boom was removed. This reduced weight allows more bulk on the boom, resulting in higher machine throughput. Also, the loading process has become partially automatic.

Solution Packages:Collision Avoidance (boom, chute), Remote Control, partial automation (e.g. changing hatches, return to parking position, change chutes, automatic shipscan and identification of hatches, stockpile surface scanning in hatch in real time e.g. for trimming)

The new shiploader was equipped with the indurad collision avoidance for the boom and chute. As the operators found the system extremely reliable, the collision avoidance functionality became part of an operator guidance system.

Solution Packages:Collision Avoidance (Boom, Chute). Currently we run an upgrade for full total automation.

Iron Ore Terminal

Shiploader equipped with operator assistance system. The system provides operators a view of the material loaded into the hatch in real time, allowing the operator to see material flow into the hatch (and not onto the deck) and distribute material evenly in the hatch also with a simple discharge mechanism. This is considered as the first step to full automation.
