Navis and Tianjin Port Group sign MOU

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with China-based Tianjin Port Group, currently the world’s largest terminal complex using the Navis N4 terminal software system.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}As part of the MOU, Navis and Tianjin Port Group say they will join forces to accelerate the introduction of technology within Tianjin Port as it moves towards automation, from the development of a future Smart Port project to joint collaboration on technology adoption and service support.

Tianjin Port Group recorded the fastest N4 implementation on record in Navis’ history, rolling out the system across its six terminals in less than eight months, with each operating different TOS technologies and system versions. With the project completed, Tianjin Port Group will use N4 to move approximately 15 million TEU annually.

“We are extremely proud of our record-breaking N4 implementation. While many factors contributed to the project’s success, we recognised the powerful results that were achieved when Tianjin Port and Navis teams came together with a common goal in mind,” said Zhang Ruigang, chairman of Tianjin Port Group.

“The MOU agreement signals our commitment to working with an industry leader like Navis to achieve rapid innovation and make our operational goals, including automation, a reality.”{/mprestriction}

  • Anglo-Eastern extends DNV GL’s Navigator Port technology to fleet

    Ship manager Anglo-Eastern has completed the successful roll-out of DNV GL’s Navigator Port to its fleet of more than 600 vessels. 

    Navigator Port software is used onboard several thousand ships for management of port documentation, assisting seafarers in navigating the administrative and regulatory complexity of port clearance and passage through controlled waters.

    “One of the most time-consuming tasks onboard is preparing port documentation,” said Captain Pradeep Chawla, managing director, QHSE and training at Anglo-Eastern. “We have brought in Navigator Port to reduce the administrative burden and ensure quality of the reporting. This is especially important on ships where the port of call is not known well in advance.”

    “The addition of Navigator Port to our ships is part of our overall digital transformation effort across our fleet,” stated Capt. Bjorn Hojgaard, chief executive officer of Anglo-Eastern. “We are evolving our shipboard technologies for the future with smart solutions, and DNV GL’s offering complements our vision for a digitally enhanced fleet.”

    Navigator Port facilitates compliance with requirements from charterers and port authorities. Approximately 1,400 port clearance forms are automatically filled in with ship data, so the required paperwork can be prepared in a few minutes. The system reports directly to maritime authorities, such as the Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOAD) to the United States Coast Guard, and the Electronic Pre-Arrival Notification (ePAN) to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

    In addition, Navigator Port includes a database of information about all the world’s ports and terminals based on publications and data from IHS Markit Ports & Terminals Guide, ADMIRALTY List of Radio Signals (Volume 6) and other sources. In all, paperwork can be reduced by up to 90 per cent.

    “We’re very pleased about the successful implementation of Navigator Port across the Anglo-Eastern fleet. Navigator Port makes it easier for the crew to report accurately and efficiently, which ultimately means that they can focus on their primary responsibility: safe and sound navigation,”  said Kenneth Vareide, CEO of DNV GL – Digital Solutions.
