Equipment Design & Infrastructure Committee

“Clarity on port equipment design standards and a better understanding of the interfaces between cranes, other equipment and infrastructure are critical to safe, sustainable and productive port operations in an increasingly complex technological environment.”

Simo Hoite, Senior Engineer, Liftech Consultants Inc.
PEMA Equipment  Design & Infrastructure Committee Chair

The mission of the PEMA Equipment Design and Infrastructure Committee is to provide neutral information, education and advice on standards and their application to the design of port equipment, together with guidance on issues related to equipment design and equipment interfaces with port infrastructure.

There are many national and international standards that cover the design of port equipment. Some of these standards overlap and may have nebulous relationships to each other. There are also gaps between standards and it is not always clear what standards are applicable in different countries. A key goal of the committee is to clarify the relationships among port equipment standards, in particular those related to container handling cranes.

There is also often still a gap between port planning and civil engineering on the one hand, and equipment design and operation on the other.And with the rapidly changing world of automated terminal operations, these gaps are even more prevalent. Fostering better understanding and standardisation of the increasingly complex requirements and unique physical interfaces between cranes, other equipment, and infrastructure is therefore a second main focus for the Committee.
