Transas Installs Vessel Traffic Management System for Bahia Blanca Port

Transas Installs Vessel Traffic Management System for Bahia Blanca Port

Under this contract, Transas replaced the previous Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) system with the Transas Navi-Harbour system. The Navi-Harbour VTS system is specifically designed to ensure maritime navigation safety and efficiency, while at the same time protecting the environment from the possible adverse effects of marine traffic.

The new Transas VTS installed makes use of the latest sensors like Radar, CCTV and AIS to provide comprehensive and reliable visibility of the marine traffic situation in and around the port. The system consists of two operator workstations, one recording and playback station and three VHF stations which are all used by the port authority to manage and monitor the marine traffic in their area of responsibility. In addition to this, the system includes an online portal allowing authorized users to view, in real time, the marine traffic in the port and the surrounding areas.

Bahia Blanca Port is the second largest port in Argentina. Strategically located between La Pampa and Patagonia, it mainly consists of Ingeniero White and Galván harbors and serves as an important communications hub for the country. The new VTS system by Transas is being considered to strengthen the port, improve quality of its services and optimize resources utilization.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
