Hutchison Port Sohar has adopted Hutchison Ports' award winning Next Generation Terminal Management System (nGen) to ensure the highest level of efficiency. nGen is central to Hutchison Port Sohar's aspirations to establish itself as the premier terminal in the Gulf region.
nGen allows Hutchison Ports Sohar to streamline operations, while an electronic data interchange facilitates communication with business partners, significantly reducing the need to produce paper documentation.
Additionally, nGen's ship planning system optimizes stowage planning, crane deployment and stability calculation, while its yard planning system allows yard planners to decide the most appropriate locations for grounding containers according to their designated vessels, weight classes and ports of discharge.
To ensure live updates to the nGen platform, Hutchison Ports Sohar has deployed a Wi-Fi umbrella across the yard, quay and gatehouse. The umbrella is a system of wireless terminals, including handheld terminals at the quay and gatehouse, vehicle mounted terminals on yard cranes, and vehicle mounted computers on yard trucks.
Terminal C has eight remote controlled super post-Panamax quay cranes which are operated from the state-of-the-art Remote Operations Centre.
Furthermore, the terminal has installed a comprehensive CCTV system to monitor terminal operations and enhance resource allocation and management during vessel operations from the Tower Control Room.
