Terminal management and planning software solutions provider Tideworks Technology says that Koniambo Nickel SAS (KNS) in Koné, New Caledonia, has selected Tideworks to implement its terminal operating system (TOS) solutions for its new container operations.

Established near the New Caledonia North Province county town of Koné, KNS is developing a world-class industrial complex that will help New Caledonia become one of the world's largest nickel producers. It is working to exploit a nickel deposit that is ranked one of the most important and of the best quality worldwide.

The KNS project, which will go live in Q4 2013, includes deployment of Tideworks’ Spinnaker Planning Management System® and its Traffic Control™ equipment dispatch system. Tideworks will provide all associated implementation services, including project management, software configuration and installation, user training and go-live assistance.

Post go-live, Tideworks will provide its platinum maintenance and support services, which include 24/7 technical support and all software upgrades. Tideworks will also provide KNS with remote administration of the application and database servers, OS and database patches and monitoring of system availability and performance.

KNS operates a mine, a pyrometallurgical nickel foundry, a power-generating station and other complementary infrastructures, most notably a privately owned deep-water port, an 11-kilometer land-based conveyor system and a seawater desalination plant. Ore treatment began the second quarter of 2013, and will gradually increase to reach an annual production of 60,000 tons of nickel content by 2014.
