Kalmar has signed a maintenance and support agreement with International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) covering the automated container handling solution operating at Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT).

The maintenance and support agreement for Australia's first fully automated container terminal covers all aspects of the OneTerminal automated solution, which comprises Navis N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS), 20 Kalmar automated stacking cranes (ASCs) and 11 Kalmar AutoShuttles (TM).

The Kalmar Terminal Logistics System (TLS) conducts routing and execution for automated operations based on the orders from the Navis N4 TOS. TLS is connected through open Kalmar Key interface to five automatic neo-Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) cranes.

Anders Dømmestrup, chief executive Officer, VICT: "VICT is one of the most advanced container terminals in the world. With the strong collaboration of Kalmar's cutting-edge technology and equipment and Navis' industry-leading TOS, we have reached an important point in our development: going from implementation into optimisation to now achieve the highest standards in port safety and efficiency.

“This integrated maintenance and support agreement will allow us to maximise the productivity, equipment efficiency and availability of our OneTerminal automated systems, ensuring that we can provide our customers with world-class service."

VICT welcomed its first vessel in March 2017. Located at Webb Dock East in the Port of Melbourne, the terminal's unique location on the bay side of the port means a faster turnaround time for imports and exports as well as easier berthing for ships.
