Digital Twin

From Vision to Reality: Developing Tomorrow's Ports with Digital Twin Technology

At HPC, we're bringing a noteworthy Digital Twin approach to managing ports and terminals. This technology creates a dynamic digital mirror of your port's ecosystem, capturing everything from cranes and terminals to the entire port layout. It connects in real time with data sources like terminal operations, equipment conditions, and traffic counts, presenting all necessary information in one easy-to-use application with engaging 3D visualizations.

A Digital Twin improves how ports operate by offering a complete, current view of activities and making historical data easy to access. This leads to better decision-making, faster responses to disruptions, and a straightforward interface for everyone, regardless of their expertise.

Progressing further, we at HPC, combine the concept of a Digital Twin with the power of simulation to predict the effects of changes in layout, schedules, and resources, calling it a Triple Twin. This advancement allows for the exploration of potential operational changes and their impacts, such as adjustments in layout, scheduling, and resource allocation.

When simulation operates through external software in tandem with the Digital Twin, we achieve what is known as a Digital Triplet. This innovation extends the capabilities of the Digital Twin, enabling detailed scenario analysis and predictive planning for ports aiming to enhance their operational efficiency and foresight.
