PORT OF ANTWERP INVESTS IN DIGITALIZATION OF RADAR INFRAESTRUCUTRE

2021-12-28

Radar infrastructure plays an important role in the guidance of shipping traffic. As part of this, a framework
contract was recently awarded to Securitas to fully digitalize and further expand this infrastructure. Because of its location in the hinterland and the associated complex calls, the nautical chain operation is of crucial
importance for smooth traffic in the port of Antwerp. At the port itself, Port of Antwerp began rolling out vessel
traffic management in 2021, with the aim of upgrading the guidance of shipping traffic behind the locks.

The digitalization of this radar infrastructure will further support and accelerate efforts on other innovation
projects. This will simplify the connection with the digital twin APICA (Advanced Port Information and
Communication Assistant). This digital twin allows various real-time data to be brought together and, via data science, translated into actionable information for a diverse group of internal and external stakeholders.
