Orlaco Cameras used on new STS Cranes in Haifa Port Israel
Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries has shipped the first batch of four ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and two rail-mounted gantry (RMG) cranes for Israel Haifa Automatic Terminal to Haifa Port. To increase the safety and ease of operation in the port, the new STS Cranes were fitted with cameras from Stoneridge-Orlaco.
The Port of Haifa – a landmark project in Israel – will be Israel's largest container terminal when completed. It is one of the largest ports in the eastern Mediterranean in terms of freight volume and handles over 29 million tons of cargo per year.
Our partner BroadVision (Xiamen) Technology Co., Ltd in China was the integrator of the vision solution. The company developed BroADAS, an intelligent advanced driving assistant system for port cranes. This system consists of solid heavy duty Orlaco AF-Zoom HD-E IP cameras from Stoneridge-Orlaco, visual Artificial Intelligence, remote controls and equipment management. BroADAS improve situational awareness for operators, making port cranes safer, more intelligent and more efficient.
Port engineers told BroadVision that “BroADAS is one of the best systems they ever used”. The new system solved the image shaking problem when the trolley is moving, which was a big headache for the engineers for many years. Thanks to the new system, operators can now work more easily and confidently. Furthermore, the combination of Orlaco cameras and BroadVision’s BroADAS ensure much greater safety and increase ease of operation.
