APM Terminals Bahrain Announces Successful Completion of LCPS Pilot Project

APM Terminals Bahrain, operators of Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP), has recently made significant advances in Safety performance and information technology systems, including the successful completion of a Load Collision Prevention System (LCPS) pilot project scheduled to be implemented throughout the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network.

APM Terminals  Bahrain was selected as the first  terminal to introduce and live-test the LCPS, (Load Collision Prevention System) following two years of research, engineering and initial testing by APM Terminals to reduce the risk of accidents due to collisions in the container yard between container handling equipment and stacked containers. Technical innovations and procedural changes were put into place on KBSP’s Rubber-Tire Gantry Cranes (RTGs) and Reach Stackers (RS). The investments made in collision avoidance and distance detection systems included installation of state-of-the-art cameras on all of the RTGs to remove blind spots faced by the operators and enhanced night vision features. The success of the program, known as “Project Stack”, has led to plans to introduce the new equipment and procedures at other APM Terminals facilities next year, as the improved safety features are rolled out globally.
