Five authors from PEMA’s technical committees will present three new papers on terminal safety, process automation and environmental efficiency at TOC Europe 2018.

The presentations will be made as part of the ‘PEMA Papers’ initiative to see the PEMA Technical Committee Papers presented in engaging live sessions. They will include an overview of the new PEMA standards paper ‘Product Environmental Impact Evaluation’, which sets out a common industry standard for evaluating the environmental impact of container handling products.

Fae Brennan, chair of the CEEP committee, said: “The PEMA Information Papers, hold a unique role within the industry, providing practical, topical and non-commercial insight into different aspects of port equipment and technology.”

PEMA model impact

Lead author of the environmental paper Jussi Korpela and contributors, Hannu Oja and Jan Willem van den Brand, will explore the impact the PEMA model could have for improved energy efficiency data of port equipment.

Kari Rintanen, chair of the PEMA Automation and Control Technologies Committee, will also talk on the key points from the paper ‘Automatic Stacking Crane Performance’, examining alternative layouts of ASCs and how these impact performance in container stacking operations.

Closing the PEMA session, Stephan Stiehler will present new paper ‘Collision Prevention at Ports and Terminals’. Considering the major features and types of non-contact technologies for collision prevention, this segment will suggest the installation of these technologies in new and existing port equipment to improve terminal safety.

Launched at TOC Americas last year, PEMA Papers was developed in partnership with TOC Worldwide.
