With the implementation of standards, HHLA can easily make modifications to the entire system regardless of vendor-specific hardware or software

Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG

AVEVA-based solution automates the control of the shipping container facility for Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) at the Port of Hamburg, one of the world’s largest and busiest sea ports.


  • HHLA needed to double its container capacity at its Burchardkai container terminal
  • The company required an automation process that could accommodate a new warehousing business objective of increasing container stacking capabilities from three to five stories
  • HHLA needed to implement a restructured and expanded power and lighting strategy to manage the new container stacking method


  • With shipments arriving 24/7, HHLA operators were tasked with managing control processes and monitoring the technical operational devices at the Burchardkai container terminal on an aggressive, non-stop time schedule
  • Central control of the terminal processes was not available, reducing the overall effectiveness of the facility managers


  • With the implementation of standards, HHLA can easily make modifications to the entire system regardless of vendor-specific hardware or software
  • The integrated modularity of the solution provides extensive scalability which enables HHLA to expand and enhance the control system to achieve its goal of doubling the capacity of its container management business
  • The solution offers flexibility that enables HHLA to duplicate the control system at its other container terminals in the future

"The object-oriented approach of the AVEVA software is very beneficial in the central development environment. The hierarchical structure of the shared system areas is centrally stored for easy access and maintenance."

– Rudiger Friedrichs, Project Manager, Industrial Systems
