Goal of the project
The aim of dashPORT is to make more conscious use of energy-intensive consumers and to save avoidable energy consumption. In addition, dashPORT will predict electricity consumption and consumption peaks resulting from the knowledge of upcoming ship arrivals and the associated transhipment activities.
Subject of the project
Electricity consumption at transhipment terminals is high and varies greatly depending on operations. This has financial and environmental implications and challenges for network operators and users. Reason enough to analyse the situation in detail and improve it with the help of digital solutions. In the dashPORT project - short for "Port Energy Management Dashboard" - the companies Niedersachsen Ports and the handling company J. Müller in Brake are now being supported by the Fraunhofer CML and the OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology in setting up an energy consumption monitoring system. In order to record the consumption of all relevant consumers in the entire port environment at the terminal in detail and in real time, around 500 digital remote-readable electricity meters are being installed. Their measured values are continuously evaluated and processed using machine learning.
