Press release date: August 13, 2010

LUSTENAU, Austria -- IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, the global-leader in industrial active RFID and sensor based technology and solutions, announced today that Total Terminal International Algeciras (TTI Algeciras), the container terminal operator of Hanjin in Southern Spain, has gone live with an innovative new Real Time Locating System from IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, for the tracking and control of containers.

TTI Algeciras is the first semi-automatic terminal in the Mediterranean area and was built with the intention of handling the latest as well as the future requirements of container vessels. IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, in partnership with Hi-Tech Solutions Europe (HTSE), deployed active RFID and GPS based technologies for a quay crane Real Time Locating System (RTLS) and automated transfer point management (TPM) system in the automated storage areas.

"TTI Algeciras was designed to immediately accommodate a maximum of 1.6 million TEU's progressively with the commencement of operations," states Oscar Pernia, Processes Systems and Innovation Team Leader, TTI Algeciras.

"Deploying a Real Time Locating System that featured both active RFID and GPS technologies was essential for our terminal's immediate and long-term objectives. IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, and Hi Tech Solutions Europe, were able to provide a solution that met our requirements."

The terminal, owned and built by the South Korean Hanjin Group and located at the Port of Algeciras on the Strait of Gibraltar, represents the largest single investment ever made by a South Korean company in Spain.

Operational for two months prior to the formal opening ceremonies on July 15th 2010, TTI Algeciras had already reached 47 percent of its operational status.

The RTLS and TPMS deployment began in November 2009 and went live in May 2010.
