Site Tour 2

‘The Hive’ is a technology incubator managed by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (‘LXRA’). The Hive has been created to validate the extent to which disruptive technologies can deliver value for the $18-billion LXRA program, $50-billion Victoria’s Big Build and the wider construction industry. It is a vehicle to deliver an industry-wide digital transformation program for the construction industry. At launch, it is focused on The Connected Site, a world’s first IOT platform connected to LXRA construction sites to provide 4000 LXRA program partners a means to enhance operational performance, improve safety and reduce operating costs using real-time data to proactively assist decisions in Site Logistics, Asset Management, Safety, Community and Environment Management and Benchmarking.

2:00pm – 3:15pm @ Victoria International Container Terminal


Removing humans from the equation is an undeniable way to boost safety on work sites – which is where automation comes in. Industries across the globe are increasingly embracing the use of smart technology to automate traditionally hazardous and intensive tasks, keeping employees clear of danger while ratcheting up efficiency at the same time. We invite you to join us for an exclusive tour of one such case: the world’s first fully automated container terminal, Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) at the Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East. You will witness the terminal’s various automated systems in action – including stacking cranes, shuttles, trucks and more – and see how technology and innovation come together to deliver efficient operations at minimal human risk.
