Efficiency Through Innovation

Hutchison Ports stands at the forefront of technological advancement in the ports industry. Through continuous investment, we’ve developed cutting-edge solutions that contribute to greater efficiency across every aspect of our operations. To stay ahead, we will continue to innovate, and use cutting-edge technologies and equipment that satisfy the needs of our customers.

Equipment

REMOTE-CONTROLLED QUAY CRANES

Quay cranes in some of our terminals can be remotely operated from a remote operation station located in a control room inside the terminal building. With the aid of cameras and automation technologies, our operators can sit comfortably in an office environment while achieving remarkable quayside productivity.

REMOTE-CONTROLLED RAIL-MOUNTED GANTRY CRANES AND RUBBER-TYRED GANTRY CRANES

Similar to remote-controlled quay cranes, some of our rail-mounted and rubber-tyred gantry cranes can be remotely operated from a remote operation station located inside the office building.

AUTOMATIC TRUCK IDENTIFICATION

With the use of RFID system, we can track the real-time location of internal and external trucks within the terminal yard area, enabling nGen, our terminal management platform, to plan and deploy appropriate equipment efficiently.

GPS-ENABLED POSITION DETERMINATION SYSTEM

Our rubber-tyre gantry cranes are equipped with differential GPS system that provides centimeter-accuracy position information. As a result, our yard inventory record is highly accurate and up-to-date.

SHORETENSION MOORING SYSTEM

Our revolutionary ShoreTension mooring system, based on the permanent tension of shore mooring lines, allows sea-going vessels to be more safely and securely moored to the quay. The system dampens the ship's motion and absorbs its energy. Moored vessels hardly move in strong winds, swells, fast currents or passing shipping traffic. Even in extreme conditions, the ShoreTension system is capable of preventing mooring lines from snapping. It is CO2 neutral, as no extra energy is necessary.
