In the current landscape, the successful integration of the latest technologies, the modernization of the workforce and the effective channeling of generational expertise are crucial for optimizing port maintenance performance.

There is a wide spectrum of Emerging technologies and processes including  Data Analytics,  Automation, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Digital Twin, Drones, Advanced CMMS, Mobility Solutions and 5G  that are revolutionizing  Port Operations and Maintenance, making them more efficient, robust, and future-ready.

The balanced leveraging of these technologies has the potential to deliver and in many cases is already delivering superior Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) – enhancing equipment availability, augmenting operational reliability, extending the Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), and improving real-time response mechanisms. Concurrently, these innovations can drive a reduction in Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), stockout rates, and maintenance backlogs, effectively improving cost efficiency and safety metrics, all the while promoting a more sustainable approach to port maintenance.

This summit is designed keeping the above context in mind, with the goal of exploring the nuances of technological transformation in port maintenance.
