Guaranteed safe and efficient business operations for EMO
EMO is the largest transhipment terminal for coal and iron ore in Western Europe. Originating from around the world, the biggest ships (bulk carriers) lay anchor at the EMO terminal in Rotterdam. State-of-the-art bulk-handling equipment facilitates the rapid and orderly unloading of these vessels. The freight is then distributed to various parts of the terminal for storage, processing or handling.
Jos de Kluyver, Application Manager at EMO: “Covering an area of 160 hectares, which is equal to 100 football pitches, EMO is Europe’s largest dry bulk terminal. Accordingly, broad coverage on the site is important, so that all users can communicate in a safe and secure manner. All operational departments, the emergency response team and security use the communication network.”
According to De Kluyver: “We depend on communication to guarantee safe and efficient operations.” Flash Private Mobile Networks set up a reliable network with a TETRA multi-site system combined with TETRA two-way radios from Motorola, ensuring that all users can reach each other 24/7.
For EMO, the system’s key advantages are safety and reliability. As a result, users can handle a high operational load of their processes. According to De Kluyver: “There is a lot of dust drifting about here, and the fact that the equipment is exposed to the elements, as well as salt, is a point of concern. The user panel in particular proved that, despite the noisy conditions on site, the excellent sound quality of the new two-way radios made it possible to hear and understand all messages clearly.”
