Meet the Innovation in Safety Award Entrants: DP WORLD – ITV TWIST LOCK SENSOR DETECTION SYSTEM
In the countdown to this year’s Innovation in Safety Award Ceremony we are sharing each of the entries that we received. Whilst there can only be one winner of the award itself, the wide range of entries means that there are ideas that will appeal to different readers directly or may be the inspiration for your own next step change for safety.
We will introduce you all to all of the entries before the Award Ceremony on 23 February.
Today’s entry is:
DP WORLD – ITV TWIST LOCK SENSOR DETECTION SYSTEM
The Terminal Yard uses Auto Rail Mounted Gantry [ARMG] cranes and container receipt and delivery as well stacking is completely done in auto mode. One single unpinned twist lock could lead to stack collapse during auto handling of containers, leading to fatal or multiple property damage incidents.
Container Twistlock detection sensors are installed on all ITV’s (Internal Transfer Vehicle). These alert drivers to any twistlocks attached to vessel discharged container corner castings prior delivering the container to container stacking yard, with alarm beep sound and red LED light indicators mounted on the trailer as well as a light inside the cabin. To bulletproof the twist lock detection system and prevent errors, the twist lock detection system has been integrated with the VMT (Vehicle Mounted Terminal) which is inside the ITV’s cabin (the VMT lets the driver know the container receipt and delivery locations).
On receiving the vessel discharged container this integration system will do the following:
- Upon detecting unpinned twist lock on the container, VMT screen will block the appearance of yard location to ground the container.
- ITV Driver will get yard location only upon removal of twist locks from the container corner casting at pinning station
- Moreover, pop-up message on VMT screen is displayed, advising driver to “Go to Pinning Station” to unpin the twist lock.
Due the system enhancement, the issue of containers reaching the yard with unpinned locks has been resolved completely.
