Orbita’s skills cover mechanical, electrical, automation and IT Engineering which combined are able to deliver customized answers to the Maritime industry most demanding requirements.

Our process

This is how we work

Consultancy 01

We understand consultancy as a guidance, to complete the client analysis from a technological and engineering process point of view.

Standard solutions 02

Our standard range of products has been tested and proved and it is modular and scalable to create the perfect integrated solution for each type of Terminal.

Engineering 03

During the project engineering stage our engineers define the infrastructure documentation to establish the new system details.

Supply 04

After the engineering stage is finished, the required hardware is compiled and checked out in our facilities.

Manufacturing and assembly 05

The mechanical engineering area designs made to measure 3D models to be manufactured. The final off-site phase consists of all the hardware pre-assembly, configuration and test in our facilities.

Software development 06

Any standard or bespoke software design is stressed and tested before its implementation and release.

Testing and commissioning 07

We schedule an strict plan to execute and coordinate on site testing and commissioning works to achieve our high standards efficiently.

Documentation and training 08

Terminal personnel are involved in specific training sessions for different profiles such as maintenance, operations or IT . We also provide comprehensive technical and user friendly documentation.

Tailor Made Solutions.

Custom designed services

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.

A reliable engineering answer for many difficult situations

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.

Key information about the Terminal

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 specializing in Ports and Terminals industry. Let us help you improve your view and control over your Terminal’s systems.

The best CHE position detection systems option

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.

Between an operating system and server applications

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.

Machine to machine communication

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 multiple systems to act as a single functional entity.

Support & Maintenance

24 hour customer support

For 365 days and 24 hours per day we have a multidisciplinary technical team on call (automation, electrical, IT and artificial vision) to support our maintenance clients.

We offer different types of Service Level Agreements to adapt to the Terminal needs.

Our technical experts on call are an active part of project developments. Therefore, they are completely up to date to the technical standards and technological progress to provide the maximum efficiency during the interventions.

Since we look for a long-term relationship with clients and a continuous contact, the same technical experts on call are assigned to different developments for the same client. Thus, they know the facilities, the infrastructure and the process to be covered.
