Cargotec subsidiaries Kalmar and Navis have completed the delivery of the first OneTerminal integrated automation solution to International Container Terminal Services Incorporated (ICTSI) at the Port of Melbourne in Australia.

The solution has been deployed at ICTSI’s Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) ahead of schedule, and features 20 automatic stacking cranes (ASC) and 11 AutoShuttles, as well as automated truck handling (ATH) and terminal logistics systems (TLS) from Kalmar.

It also includes the Navis N4 terminal operating system.

Kalmar has also provided various project services required for the solution's deployment and continued support.

Delivery of the solution has been carried out by a single team as part of a contract originally signed between the companies in 2014.

The system has enabled VICT to become the world's first fully automated international container handling facility.

ICTSI Asia Pacific region senior vice-president and VICT chairman Christian Gonzalez said: “VICT was designed, and is now equipped, to be fully automated, making it the most advanced container terminal in the world.

"We chose Kalmar’s cutting-edge technology and equipment and Navis’ software, and it is enabling us to reach the highest standards of port safety."

“We chose Kalmar's cutting-edge technology and equipment and Navis' software, and it is enabling us to reach the highest standards of port safety. The project was completed on budget and ahead of schedule.

“This has never been achieved in the port industry for a fully automated terminal.

"It is especially noteworthy when considering the unprecedented complexity of the civil works requirements, along with the level of pioneering automation governing the design.”

VICT is situated in the north of Port Phillip Bay at the mouth of Yarra River in Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East, and is currently capable of handling more than one million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of cargo annually.

The 35ha terminal is expected to be able to handle 400,000TEU per year once fully operational.

VICT features a 660m straight berth, which can accommodate two large vessels with capacities of up to 8,000TEU to 12,500TEU simultaneously.
