Automatiseren van containeroverslag en het voorkomen/bestrijden van lawaai.
Report 92.3.TT.2974, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
As container ships and the flow container at terminals are growing bigger
and bigger, container terminals will be bigger in the future and will be more
automated than they are at present. In this report is studied how deepsea
terminals and rail terminals can be automated further.
Modern deepsea terminals, like the ECT/Sea-Land Delta Terminal, have usually
already been automated partially. At the ECT/Sea-Land Delta Terminal
transport and stacking of containers have already been automated. Automated
loading and unloading of sea-ships meets with a number of difficulties.
Rail terminals have not yet been automated. It appears to be possible however,
to automate rail terminals.
Container terminals often cause noise nuisance. Especially peak noise, the
noise that springs up as a result of putting down containers, constitutes a
problem. Peak noise can be opposed by putting down containers at a low
speed. This can be realized very well with the help of automated equipment.
