Wybrane pełne teksty z tego czasopisma
The consortium SPP MiG participated the NGCP challenge organised by Singapore Maritime Institute and the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore. The main idea of the concept is based on the condition of 80 % transhipment cargo at the terminal. This kind of transhipment hub requires an immense sorting effort of all boxes discharged from vessels and to be loaded on other vessels. Thus the consortium decided to build a terminal around a sorting machine as the heart of all operation. The technology for this sorting area is based on the Linear Motor Transfer Technology, which is also used for the Transrapid airport connection in Shanghai. Simulation studies, executed with the CHESSCON suite, proved that this concept is able to achieve the targets given by the organisers. Within this paper the concept is presented with the technologies used for discharging/loading, horizontal transportation, stacking and sorting the containers on the terminal. Furthermore some ecological aspects will be discussed.
