As ports and their supply chain partners digitalize business operations, digital twins are a useful tool for visualizing and understanding complex systems and processes within one integrated model. Ports often start with creating 3D site models that incorporate maps (GIS) and facilities data to help with the planning and development of construction and maintenance projects. These virtual representations of the port site can then be augmented with live sensor and video data to establish digital twins with real-time situational awareness. Furthermore, digital twins that continuously intake real-time data can start to predict emergent issues such as congestion, security threats, heightened energy consumption or network utilization, and automatically respond to them before the problems become critical.

To learn how ports and industry partners are putting this into practice today, join our webinar with leading experts from Massport, Ericsson, Hexagon, and Fresh Consulting.

Energy is a potential revenue stream. Beyond balancing the cost of capital investments with savings against grid energy retail prices, self-generation and storage creates opportunities to supply energy to the grid when prices are favorable. 

With sufficient self-generation capacity, ports can develop private wire systems, trading energy with nearby businesses, hotels, industrial parks, electric vehicle charging hubs, and green hydrogen facilities. Private wire systems can create a reliable customer base and strengthen the port’s sustainability credentials by contributing to the local green economy.

Available On Demand
