Joint project TwinSim started

Project objective: Development of a digital twin of the EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg

Hamburg/Bremerhaven (Germany), January 2022. The IHATEC- joint project TwinSim pursues the development of a digital twin for the visualization and simulation-based optimization of processes at the EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg (CTH). The visualization of real-time data of the terminal equipment, in particular the container gantry cranes and straddle carriers, as well as networking by means of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, should make optimization potentials visible.

The university's Institute of Information Systems (IWI), headed by Dr. Leonard Heilig, is involved in the project as a scientific partner and, in addition to providing methodological and technical support to the project partners, will focus primarily on developing artificial intelligence (AI) methods for optimizing terminal processes. The joint coordinator of the TwinSim project is EUROGATE GmbH & Co. KGaA, KG. Other project partners include EUROGATE Technical Services GmbH and akquinet port consulting GmbH. According to the project plan, EUROGATE Technical Services will, among other things, equip some of the terminal's devices and machines with additional sensors and collect and provide both its own and external data in a datalake. From this datalake, AKQUINET will be able to fill its Chesscon software with data to generate the desired modeling, simulations and 3D visualizations.

With the funding program for Innovative Port Technologies (IHATEC II), the German Federal Ministry of Digitalization and Transport (BMDV) supports research and development projects that contribute to the development or adaptation of innovative technologies in German sea and inland ports. This is intended to ensure that they continue to fulfill their function as hubs for the national and international exchange of goods in the future. In addition, the competitiveness of German ports is to be strengthened. (Source: https://www.innovativehafentechnologien.de).

The project is an application-oriented research and development project according to the funding guideline Innovative Port Technologies (IHATEC) of the BMVI. The financial volume of the project comprises approx. 3.65 million euros with a funding share of approx. 54% by the BMVI. The project is planned to run for three years from October 2021 to September 2024. Currently, the project is in the requirements analysis phase.
