Position Detection System at Antwerp Port
BASF announces successful deployment of Essensium's EPSTM based Position Detection System (PDS) as a Safety Assistance System helping in the protection of employees operating Container Handling Equipment (CHE) at their Antwerp facility.
Safety is productivity. The reduction of collision or near-miss incidents between handling equipment increases the safety of the work environment. And a safe workplace avoids downtime due to incidents and thus increases productivity.
"With the extension project and this system in place," said Dirk Vanreusel, Head of BASF Rail & Terminal Services, "we have been able to increase our operational capacity by 30%, without sacrificing our key priority of employee safety."
