Dublin terminal operator selects Tideworks software
Portroe Stevedores Ltd. has selected Seattle-based Tideworks Technology to impalement a suite of terminal management and planning software at its terminal in the Port of Dublin, Ireland.
Portroe anticipates raising its annual container volume from 200,000 TEUs to a projected 350,000 TEUs by 2008 as it brings in modern technology. Liebherr is providing Portroe with rubber-tire gantry cranes outfitted with global positioning system technology, enabling automated container positioning and denser stacking capabilities.
Tideworks said it would work closely with other technology and equipment vendors like Liebherr to ensure complete systems integration.
'We feel their operations and technology goals mesh nicely with our business model, so we're extremely pleased to be selected from the many software providers considered by Portroe,' said Michael Schwank, president of Tideworks Technology. 'This is a great opportunity for Tideworks to showcase the value of our solutions in this region by bringing greater efficiencies and lower operating costs to Portroe.'
