The Bristol Port Company has chosen CommTrac to manage its Avonmouth operation. With its Portbury site already successfully using CommTrac,The Bristol Port Company decided it made sense for both operations to have a common approach to terminal management. As well as the new implementation at the Avonmouth the project will include an upgrade to the existing Portbury software.

VIGAN Engineering has awarded DBIS a contract to supply the Motor Control Centre for phase 1 of its fertilizer storage project in Ust Luuga, Russia.

ABP’s Hull Biomass Terminal has also recently gone live using CommTrac to manage an unmanned weighbridge operation for truck movements between the berth and the storage facility.

The new extension at Peel Ports Animal Feed Store is now operational. DBIS delivered this project as a full turnkey, with electrical design and installation as well as PLC/SCADA software all provided by DBIS.
