FICT Ceremony Report: Tianjin Port Group

By: MWelles / Sat Sep 28 04:00:44 GMT 2019

Today Tianjin Port Group (TPG) held a ceremony celebrating the completion of their yard automation project at FICT which formally went live on April 30.

The Chairman and senior management from the Port were in attendance as well as the president of ZPMC, the global lead from ABB for the port sector and the GM for TrukTech.

LIANG Haitian was also recognized as one of the lead vendor Project Managers driving the success of the automation project and was given an award by their Chairman (see the attached photo).  Well done!

We'd also like to take this opportunity to give a long-overdue "thank you" to those who helped make this brownfield site conversion project, one of the first of its kind in the world, a success.

  • The consultants who supported the project included Kathy XIE, Wilson Cheng Hock CHUA, Matthew TAN, Jonathan LOH and Allan HSIEH.
  • On the Support side, the HK team played a key role including help from Michael CHUNG and MK NGO.
  • Arvinder and the engineering team for all the work they did on delivering side loading.  
  • And Floris and the product management team for their assistance both on-site and remotely in Oakland.

Next steps

We are targeting a workshop with Tianjin Port in Oakland in early November to review their needs over the next 2-3 years, including how to support their growth to 30M TEU.

At the same time, the team is working on finalizing the detail for the new fully automated site, "Terminal C", targeted to contract in the next few months.

It was a great day for our customer and our partners and we were happy to be part of it.  And it was a validation that all the hard work we've done over the past 2 years was worth it as we are now poised to be a foundation technology for the Port's future expansion over the next 5 years.

Thanks again all for your support.
