DP World and SMS will introduce the system of storage of the coils of metal in the field of the container

Between the objectives, the increment of the 200% of the current ability to the container terminal and a remarkable the area and cost reduction of storage

The terminalista group DP World of Dubay and the German SMS Group, society specialized in the working and the logistics of the metals to service of the metallurgical industry, have constituted joint venture with the scope to introduce an innovative modality of handling of the container in harbour within based on a system developed from the AMOVA, branch of SMS, for handling of the coil metallic, coils that weigh until 50 tons and that they are collected into a pile within frames that can reach the 50 meters of height.

The system in phase of study previews in fact to place every container in a single bucket of a frame rather than, as it happens currently, to collect into a pile the container over the other. The objective is of stoccare the containers in frames of eleven plans, with the scope to increase of 200% storage capability of current the container terminal or to maintain to the ability reducing but of a third party the destined spaces unchanged to storage of the container.

DP World and SMS have explained that moreover, thanks to the design of the frame, it will be possible to approach every container without you must some move another and that therefore the system will bring great advantages in terms of speed, energy efficiency, the greater safety and a remarkable cost reduction. Costs - they have specified - that ulteriorly they will be wound down thanks to the possibility to reduce until 30% the necessary time for the cargo and the drainage of the container from ships of large-capacity.

DP World and SMS preview for the first time to introduce the new system to Terminal 4 of the port of Jebel Ali in time for the development of Expo 2020 to Dubay, than it will hold from on October 20, 2020 on April 10, 2021.

"The experience and the competences of DP World in cargo handling bound together to the AMOVA technology - it has evidenced the sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, president and managing director of the terminalista group of Dubay - will assure that the system extraordinarily efficient and is adapted for the current activities and those future. Which first to the world in our field, we are extremely enthusiastic of its potentialities and its characteristic revolutionaries. Our engagement in the new technologies constitutes an important priority and is known for our search of modalities that transform the way in which the goods is enlivened all over the world. The innovation takes part of our DNA and is to the heart of our success".

"Ours controlled AMOVA - the managing director of SMS Group has remembered, Burkhard Dahmen - has optimized for various decades this technology in industrial applications for the industry of the metals. The application for the container terminal is the direct result of our strategy "New Horizon" in whose aimed at SMS it transfers the technology from the metallurgical field to other sections".

"This new technology of handling of the container - it has emphasized the managing director of joint venture, Mathias Dobner - allows with the cities to use their the expensive and sensitive territories and their areas of the waterfront in more effective way. Our system will remarkablly increase the productivity of the management of the ships to dock. This means that the front of the docks could be shortened of a third party. Moreover this overbearing innovation will improve the performances meaningfully financial institutions of the ports container and also their total aspect".
