Navis, part of global cargo technology company, Cargotec, recently announced that APM Terminals’ has chosen its SPARCS N4 as its terminal operating system (TOS) of record for its new Maasvlakte II facility at the Port of Rotterdam.

APMT’s new Maasvlakte II terminal, which will operate as a 2.7 million teu annual throughput capacity container terminal when completed, will USE Navis’ SPARCS N4 as its TOS. The system will allow APMT to run its operations from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning a number of geographical locations.

Bill Walsh, president and CEO, Navis, said: “APM Terminals Maasvlakte II is an example of what terminal operations will look like in the future—fully-automated, environmentally sustainable and able to receive the growing number of mega container ships entering the market. We are proud that Navis SPARCS N4 was selected as the critical technology component for such a groundbreaking project in the marine terminal industry. We look forward to much success together during the current development phase and beyond.”

Elsewhere, Irish Liebherr Container Cranes, of German equipment manufacturer, Liebherr Group, has secured an order for the delivery of four SC350T straddle carriers to the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch, New Zealand. The cranes, which will be supplied with a 50 tonne twin lift spreader, will be linked to a remote container tracking system, providing real time accurate information on the position and handling rates of containers within the terminal.

The cranes are expected to be delivered mid 2013.
