New container-based info centre at Port of Hanstholm
On December 6, 2018, the Port of Hanstholm and Per Aarsleff A / S opened the doors to the new info centre, which will serve as a dynamic communications unit, enabling visitors to follow the large scale port expansion project.
The info centre consists of four 20 ft insulated containers. The standard container doors in the gable have been removed, and instead a large glass section has been installed, giving a view of the Port of Hanstholm. Each container is equipped with two doors that have electronic locks. The doors lock and unlock themselves- should you stay in the container when it locks, there is a built-in security so you can get out, even if the container is locked. Outside, ramps and repository connect all four containers, so that one enters via container 1 and exits from container 4. To ensure a long lifetime, a well as a non-slip surface, ramps and repos are made in brown pressure treated boards with grooves.
Inside, the containers have raw plywood walls – electricity is installed in all containers, and LED spots are mounted on rails in the ceiling. All light is connected to PIR sensors, so there only is light when there are visitors. Each container also has a built-in flat screen in the end wall. Container 1 has a technology cabinet, where networks are assembled, and a 4G router has been set up so that the containers have internet access.
The port of Hanstholm has installed a media player, as well as fittings and frames for boards that are exhibited in the containers. In addition, the port has been responsible for the installation of outdoor lighting and surveillance systems, both prepared from DC-Supply, which has also provided foundations and twist-locks for securing the containers to the ground.
The info centre is the first steps towards a larger, future project entitled “Showroom for the fishery”, which is in the pipeline.
