Cosco Shipping Ports (Spain) Valencia Terminal is to build a digital twin of its terminal facility to support improved decision making in daily operations and to optimise processes and use of equipment, working with DSP Group and TALUMIS.
TALUMIS engineers and mathematicians and DSP specialists in automation and terminal operations will focus on three particular areas: forecasting with a Digital Shadow (a calculation model based on existing data), creating a simulation model using a Digital Mirror (to manually support terminal operations), and automated optimisation based on a Digital Twin (assessing optimisation options as new data comes available).
“Thanks to new technologies, digital twins will revolutionise the way container terminals make decisions, offering operational efficiency, managing high volumes of data and avoiding dangerous situations, which will lead to safer and more efficient decision making, increasing the overall performance of the terminal,” said Ivan Deosdad, Director of Projects CSP Spain and Ignacio Huet, IT Director CSP Spain.
DSP and TALUMIS already have a partnership agreement in place to develop and market vertical software systems in the area of simulation, emulation, predictive analysis and artificial intelligence for the container terminal industry. This new deal is a result of that collaboration.
“We have the will to grow and to represent a beacon for technological innovation in container terminal management,” said Marco Fehmer, CEO of DSP and Chairman of DSP LAB.
“Digitalisation is a tool, not the result. We aim to provide concrete solutions to daily problems and enable terminals of any size and operations mode with the latest technology.”
