From September 25th to 30th, Saab Maritime Traffic Management will be exhibiting at the 23rd International Maritime Pilots’ Association Congress in Seoul, South Korea. Discussions at the show will be centered around the Future of Global Pilotage and the Changing Role of Piloting in the Maritime Space.

Saab Maritime Traffic Management will be demonstrating Saab’s KleinPilot dispatch and billing management system and AD Navigation’s ADX PPU (Portable Pilot Unit).

KleinPilot gives Pilots mobile access to the timely, accurate information they need to do their jobs. It helps Pilotages improve the efficiency of their pilot dispatching function and manage pilot rotation, activities, schedules, status and generate appropriate invoices. Visit our KleinPilot page for more information: KleinPilot.

The ADX PPU provides the highest level of accuracy and reliability for PPU applications. Operated independently, the ADX performs even better than most ship-installed gyros, ROT sensors, and speed logs. Visit the ADX PPU page for more information: ADX PPU.

July 19, 2016

Defence and security company Saab has been awarded a contract from the Curacao Ports Authority to install the latest version of Saab’s KleinPort for the Authority’s new Harbour Management System.

System functionality includes the scheduling of vessel traffic and services, the dispatch of pilots and tugs, the recording of cargo data, full tariff billing and provision of comprehensive management reporting.

“Curacao Ports required a new harbour management system that also met the needs of its tug subsidiary, KTK. We had a number of specific requirements including vessel scheduling at the different harbours on the island as well as mobile access for tugs, pilot boats and pilots. In addition, accounts for the port and tug company had to be segregated for invoicing and reporting. The proven KleinPort product was able to deliver all of our required functionality and Saab provided very effective best practices guidance as a result of their years of experience in the industry”, said Urvin Inocente, IT Manager, Curacao Ports Authority.

“KleinPort is one of the most advanced port management information systems available today and is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the harbours”, says Anders Carp, head of business unit Traffic Management within Saab business area Surveillance.

The Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) manages all of Curaçao’s ports. CPA owns the container and cruise terminal, most of the wharves and properties adjacent to the harbour, which are leased to private operators. CPA also coordinates pilotage and regulates all vessel movements in the ports. Moreover, CPA is responsible for commercial development of the ports and for overseas promotion.

KleinPort is a product of the Maritime Traffic Management product area of Saab, a leading provider of Maritime Enterprise Software.
