Professional Services

Besides our range of standard products, Orbita provides taylor-made solutions for the Ports & Terminals sector, through our multidisciplinary engineering team. Orbita's skills cover mechanical, electrical, automation or IT Engineering which combined are able to deliver customized answers to the Maritime industry most demanding requirements.

 

Maintenance & Support

After system acceptance, Orbita offers a standard warranty and various S&M programs to keep your systems operational at the highest levels of availability. This includes software and hardware support via phone, email, and, when needed, onsite. In addition, a variety of other aftermarket support services are offered.

Taylor made Solutions

Orbita’s global approach to Terminal processes makes its way through gates and cranes operations onto the container management on the yard. Technologies such as RFID, DGPS, Wi-Fi, machine control and monitoring through PLC programming and SCADA systems design are among the services that we provide to Terminals. We are Siemens Certified Solution Partners in Automation, Communications, Human Machine Interfaces and Industrial Processes. These skills, together with our strong IT, electrical and mechanical engineering experience enable us to provide advanced services when it comes to manage Container Handling Equipment.

RFID Solutions

RFID solutions for tracking operations anywhere in the Terminal are in some cases the best choice in terms of cost and efficiency. Proven technology, multiple manufacturers in the market and solutions for every Terminal layout make RFID technology a reliable engineering answer for many difficult situations. In Orbita we are experts in RFID solutions and collaborate with industry manufacturing majors in RFID technology. From designing of truck process flow inside the terminal to electronic seals reading and identifying, we provide solid engineering skills in RFID solutions.

SCADA systems

SCADA systems are an integral part of industry for controlling and monitoring processes and equipment. Orbita’s skills in classical industries such as Automotive, Chemical or Food & Beverages are brought in to the Ports and Terminals Industry to provide advanced monitoring, preventive maintenance, power management and efficiency, event reporting and more useful tools for operations and maintenance departments in Terminals. Heavy machinery, low and medium voltage power networks, water supply and fire prevention are just some of the Terminal’s systems that can be monitored and controlled remotely and susceptible of providing key information about their status, alarms and relevant functioning events. Orbita is a certified Siemens Human Machine Interface Specialist, and the only one specialising in Ports and Terminals industry. Let us help you improve your view and control over your Terminal’s systems.

Positioning and Asset Tracking

Differential Global Positioning Systems (DGPS) or Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) are some of the solutions to be implemented in the Container Handling Equipment within the Terminal area. Orbita Positioning and Asset tracking services analyse the existing possibilities to ensure that the customer has the better CHE position detection systems option. The system is finally implemented from an engineering process point of view, according to the terminal requirements.

Middleware

We call middleware to the business software that sits between an operating system and the various applications providing services to it from multiple servers. Software development for business purposes is among the taylor made solutions that Orbita provides, including the development of standard interfaces for the communication between systems.

Systems Integration

Systems Integration is one of the key services provided by Orbita. Machine to machine communication or handshaking between different systems such as a TOS and a Gate Operating systems will ensure that the different platforms act as one coordinated application. Orbita's skills in PLC programming and IT development allow us to be able to link together mutiple systems to act as a single functional entity.
