Algeciras port


The Total Terminal International Terminal in the port of Algeciras, Spain the second largest port in the Mediterranean Sea has implemented an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system on the waterside of their port. With the system they are able to automatically detect the number of containers being discharged from or loaded on container vessels in their port.

Also the exact location of the container between the cranes and the stack is monitored by the system. Together these systems provide a zero error system.

The implementation required optimizing of the IT systems, team coordination, implementation and testing of the waterside communication and navigation systems.

Employees of Solid Port Solutions managed the installation of the OCR installation on the cranes as well as the software implementation to link with the Terminal Operating System.
