Artificial intelligence for the Oslebshauser Lock

BREMEN. The Oslebshauser Lock has been securing sea cargo handling in the industrial port for more than 110 years. Since June, it also embodies the smart digitalisation of Bremen’s ports and energy-related optimisation. With the implementation of the AI-based “Tide2Use” assistance system, the water level necessary in the harbour basin will be balanced in a new energy-efficient way. As a result, the water equalisation can be increased significantly and the use of pumps reduced considerably. Consequently, the River Weser tides can be used to manage water demand.
