Associated with SCHNEIDER ISIS 3000, ALERT contributes to a better management of the electrical energy and to an optimum control of the level crossings of the Port of Bayonne. The implementation of JERICHO vocal server enables a better communication with the port-users.

The Port of Bayonne is optimally located with regard to the most active urban sites and industrial areas of the southwest of Europe. It constitutes an important freight zone where the motorways to Spain-Toulouse and Bordeaux cross.

Background
Let's first concentrate on the management of the electrical energy. Before the implementation of the new management process of the circuits breakers and meters, it was impossible for the maintenance team to detect an electrical failure as soon as it appeared. It was indeed only detected when a special operation failed for electrical reason. If, for example, there was a lighting failure in one of the warehouses due to one of the meters, the maintenance team could only detect the failure when entering the warehouse. The persons who wanted to use the warehouse and who could not contact the maintenance service were lost !

Description of the solution
Henceforth, all the electrical resources are managed by a central computer system equipped with Schneider Isis 3000 supervisor. It provides an automatic management of the circuits breakers and meters.
ALERT is interfaced with Isis 3000 system and detects all the alarms registered by the supervisor. Then, ALERT calls the operators or persons concerned with the alarm which has been detected on their mobile phones. Thanks to this system the electrical failures can be instantly detected and the maintenance team can be informed in real time !
ALERT also records the alarms in the alarm history. It enables the maintenance persons to have a complete tracability.

Level crossings under control
The Port of Bayonne contains several level crossings. ALERT participates in the functioning management of these level crossings. When, for instance, a level crossing remains lowered quite a long time or when it does not lower at the right speed, ALERT warns the concerned operators. It thus enables a much more fluid and secure management of the level crossings.

New Vocal Server for the Port of Bayonne
The Port of Bayonne has also chosen to install JERICHO vocal server. JERICHO offers a complete vocal interface which allows the harbour users to consult information or leave messages. Associated to ALERT, it enables the harbour customers to signal an event by phone and ask for the intervention of a harbour member.
Thanks to ALERT/JERICHO interface, the customers can leave a message to any operator intervening in the management of the harbour. When, for example, a boat arrives and needs to be unloaded, a docker can warn the harbour staff by leaving a message on JERICHO vocal server which transmits the message to ALERT. Then, ALERT calls the concerned operators.

Advantages of the system
Time saving, mobility, optimized management, tracability.

The Port of Bayonne: key figures :

  • First exporter of corn in France

  • 1 200 movements of ships
  • A capacity of 4.5 millions tonnes
  • 2.8 millions tonnes sent
  • 1.7 millions tonnes unloaded
