More than just a parking aid for ships

CUXHAVEN. NPorts sent out an invitation to the closing event for the IHATEC project SmartKai in Cuxhaven in late May. Around 50 invited guests had the chance to experience the assistance system and test site in action – from the ship and from the quay wall. The research project, which was completed after two-and-a-half years of development and a successful test period, aims to improve safety when ships enter and leave the port, moor and enter locks as well as prevent damage to ships and the port infrastructure.
