JLT delivers mobile computers to Basra Gateway Terminal
JLT Mobile Computers has delivered a batch of 50 JLT VERSO 12 mobile computers to Basra Gateway Terminal (BGT).
BGT, which is operated by International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI), is Iraq’s newest container and multi-purpose cargo handling facility at the port of Umm Qasr.
With this order, Umm Qasr becomes the third port in the ICTSI group to use JLT mobile computers, following contract wins at Baltic Container Terminal in Gdynia, Poland, and Batumi International Container Terminal in Batumi, Georgia.
The computers operate with the new equipment at the terminal, including reachstackers, terminal tractors and forklifts, in conjunction with Navis N4 terminal operating system.
ICTSI selected JLT for its reliability in extreme environments: in this part of the Middle East, temperatures are dangerously high on a daily basis so it’s essential that the computers used can withstand this environment to ensure that operations continue to run smoothly.
Sebastiano Cerneka, ICTSI’s head of IT for Europe and the Middle East, said: “Basra Gateway Terminal has one of the harshest operating environments for a port terminal in the world. This summer, we recorded a temperature of 53°C, the hottest in the Western Hemisphere. During that time the JLT VERSO 12 computers, which are not used in air conditioned environments, kept working.
“Being able to rely on JLT’s VERSO 12 rugged mobile computers means we can continue to meet the needs of shipping lines and cargo shippers despite the extreme weather and temperatures we experience as a matter of course.”
Equipped with Intel Atom Quad Core Series processors, the VERSO 12 computer is the latest generation of high-performance vehicle-mounted PCs from JLT that are developed from the ground up for use in the harshest environments and for business-critical functions.
