VIDEO: IAPH 2015 Kicks Off

first_imgzoom Being ready for what the future has in store means being smart when it comes to planning investments, a topic which was in the focus of the first day of the 29th IAPH World Ports Conference taking place in Hamburg.The key topics on the agenda of the conference are future SmartPORT and the cruise industry.The conference opened in a pretty impressive but unusual manner as shown in the video below: “It’s been an unusual way to open a conference, a very spectacular and innovate way. But if you want to send a message about being a Smart Port, why not do it the way it’s been done today?” said IAPH President Grant Gilfallon.To kick off the conference, a discussion was held on ship size developments, with the panel discussing, inter alia, the challenges faced by ports, terminals and captains in the clearance of mega-carriers.As an introduction to this topic, general overviews on the global economic developments were given by Peter Hinchliffe, Secretary General International Chamber of Shipping, and Dr. Christian Growitsch, Director of the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI).Peter Hinchliffe, Secretary General ICSThe Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) as organiser of the global event availed of the opportunity to present its “smartPORT” concept. HPA joined forces with the State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Transport and Innovation, and the State Ministry of Urban Development and Environment to develop the ‘smartPORT energy’ concept a few years ago.The concept involves a switch to renewable sources of energy to power the port and promotion of environmentally-friendly and innovative solutions aimed at boosting mobility.One of the most recent examples saw the port inaugurate its LNG hybrid barge Hummel with the first ”cold ironing” to the AIDAsol.In this context, Jens Meier, CEO Hamburg Port Authority, explained the economic and logistical processes that rendered the Port of Hamburg more efficient and sustainable by an advanced computer-based infrastructure.Michael Pal, principal analyst for logistics at Western Australia’s Fremantle Ports, demonstrated the Australian perspective of intelligent port management by “Truck Marshalling Automation and Control Key Performance Indicator”. In addition, representatives from Stockholm, Valencia, and the Far East gave their answers to the question of what will make port a smart one.The last day will be devoted to cruise, port law, and air purity in ports. In addition, the IAPH Women’s Forum will meet to address the question “how diversity contributes to smart thinking”.In the cruise session, Douglas Ward, author of the Berlitz Cruise Guide, will give insights into the importance of the “wow effect” when marketing cruise offers.In the port law session, which will be held parallel, legal experts devote from Rotterdam, London and Hamburg will address the question of legal domicile in maritime law. They will also address the questions of appropriate insurance policies for ports in case of accidents, including issues such as: Is ship cargo still sufficiently insured today? Who will be held liable in the event of loss or injury in ports?The conference has attracted 900 international representatives of the worlds of business, politics and science in the Hanseatic City for the five-day ports conference that started on June 1st.last_img read more

Canary Systems MultiLogger Suite software receives an update

first_imgCanary Systems says it has released a major update to its MultiLogger® Suite software platform for automated and manual data acquisition.The platform allows collection, management, display, and analysis of data for a variety of project types – “be it geotechnical, structural, meteorological, environmental, construction, or other; be it automated or manually collected; be it short-term or long-term”, Canary said.It is a vendor-independent platform that connects all the links of a monitoring project (instrumentation, dataloggers, third party databases, and telemetry) in a single platform, according to the company.“In short, MLSuite is capable of presenting, at a glance, the status of a given project as a whole, in a single integrated view, in your browser (MLWeb), in 2D and 3D, with full GIS-enabled mapping support and flexible charting options.”The latest update has seen a number of changes to the platform, according to Canary.“For the first time ever, it is possible to collect, view, and analyse data from a multitude of sources – including geotechnical instrumentation as well as radar and InSar point clouds – in a real-time, web-based 3D platform,” the company said.Within this update there are several new features. MLWeb®’s 3D visualisation engine, for instance, allows for spatial data analysis of any sensor data, and display of 3D point clouds and surfaces right into a client’s browser, Canary said. “Draw cross-sections on the fly; view surface and subsurface data from any angle; and use spatial filters to query underlying sensor and point data for charting and further analysis or alarming,” the company added.The software platform’s integrated GIS component is capable of ingesting dozens of GIS format files and live map servers without any additional tools, according to Canary. It also supports automatic conversions and reprojections on the go between local, global and projected coordinate systems for data and layers. “Additional dynamic options such as contours, heatmaps and vectors based on data values help visualise trends right on the map,” the company added.MLSuite’s Data Classing engine allows clients to set up templates that define patterns, properties, calculations, locations and relationships for their data, according to Canary. “Once classed, watch in awe how a newly installed instrument (or hundreds of them) automatically appears in the database with all charts and functions created for you,” the company said.The advanced calculation engine provides a set of tools beyond just raw data, according to Canary. “Statistical functions, trendline forecasting, if-conditionals, runtime parameters, conversions, corrections, correlations and many other operations can be created and customised to suit each project’s specific needs.”MLSuite’s alarming engine allows for setting threshold and rate-of-change alarms quickly, Canary said. Clients define the source and how many occurrences are needed to trigger an alarm, and then select from a range of on-alarm/off-alarm actions including email and text.“MLSuite includes MultiLogger, an application designed to communicate, programme, and collect from many makes and models of dataloggers and sensors directly, without the need for additional software. This single point of interaction means: robust data collection without manufacturer or vendor limitations,” Canary said.last_img read more
