Argentina-based container terminal Exolgan has taken delivery of over 80 VERSO 12 Navis-validated rugged computers, customised for use in container terminal operations from JLT Mobile Computers.
Exolgan, which is also a part of PSA International, has the capacity to simultaneously operate two large vessels in the port, with strategic maritime, fluvial and land access.
JLT, a member of global port group PSA International, develops and manufactures computers for various challenging environments.
The newly delivered computers were part of an order won by JLT in the first quarter of this year.
ITL-Exolgan corporate IT manager Enrique Torlaschi said: "The high performance of the JLT VERSO 12 computer and the official Navis validation give us confidence that our investment will enable us to support today’s as well as future needs with the same hardware.
"Another important factor in protecting our investment is fast and cost-effective service and maintenance, which JLT was able to provide in cooperation with our own technical team."
The VERSO 12 computer is equipped with an Intel Cor i-Series processor and a 64-bit operating system, and is the new generation of high-performance vehicle-mounted PCs developed by JLT.
Designed to meet the specific requirements of Exolgan, the VERSO 12 computer has been custom configured with GPS for container tracking and WiFi dual diversity external antennas to ensure reliable connectivity in the port yard.
Fully validated under the Navis Ready programme, the VERSO 12 computer can also perform self-maintenance as it speeds up turnaround times and reduces costs due to export and import regulations.
Navis Ready is a validation programme and is open to vendors of hardware technologies intended for use within a container terminal operating environment.
The validation of the Navis Ready programme helps the JLT solution integrate smoothly with the Navis terminal operating system (TOS) run by the terminal.
JLT noted that its VERSO 12, along with other JLT VERSO computers, had passed the standard tests for vehicle mounted terminals (VMTs).
In May this year, JLT Mobile Computers had launched the JLT Global Sales Partner Program to speed up its international expansion.
