April 20, 2021 – NNTC, an IT solutions provider and software developer, has recently announced that it has partnered with Saiber Innovation Technologies (Saibertech), a maritime, ports and logistics consultancy, to offer a suite of unique technological solutions for ports.
Through the partnership, NNTC is offering its MOORiNET vessel mooring and berth monitoring system, along with its SmartTwin solution, and its Digital Worker IoT platform.
The MOORiNET solution helps to simplify berthing operations and improves safety during port entrance for ships of any size, from small yachts to giant oil tankers, according to the company. The system is designed to be used by Harbour Masters or Marine Pilots for shore-based remote control of the mooring operations.
One element of the MOORiNET system utilizes augmented reality (AR) to project operational data to operators equipped with AR smart glasses running NNTC’s iFalcon Control software, providing operators with additional information on vessel and berths, as well as additional control details, all displayed in their field of view.
As well providing MOORiNET through the partnership, NNTC is also offering its SmartTwin digital twin-based solution to ports, which enables real-time remote management and controls for terminals and their machinery. The company states that its SmartTwin offering complements terminal operation systems, and can be used for process management at both container and non-container terminals.
Finally, NNTC’s Digital Worker solution helps enhance HSE compliance with a range of capabilities such as employee tracking, geo-fencing, and social distancing management.
Pradeep Luthria, Senior Partner, Principal Consultant at Saiber Innovation Technologies, commented: “Saiber has assembled a truly unique combination of alliance partners, providing powerful, innovative solutions, be they for landside, waterside – ports, vessels & rigs. The formalized Saiber-NNTC alliance follows closely on the heels of the Salber-BSOL alliance and the Salber-CNB Logitech alliance, placing Saiber in a unique position to provide both total solutions or address specific requirements in a piecemeal fashion with remarkable scalability and economy.”
NNTC states that it focuses on innovations and digital transformation projects including face recognition and video analytics, virtual and augmented reality, AI & robotics, Internet of Things, drones and building information modeling (BIM). Last year for example, the company announced it was working with Vuzix to integrate its iFalcon Face Control with the Vuzix Blade smart glasses.
