    PSA invests in 22 new automated guided vehicles

    PSA  Singapore  (PSA)  has  invested  in  22  new Automated  Guided  Vehicle s (AGV) for  its  container  terminals , bringing  the fleet to 30 units, the company said in its press release.  Operating 24/7,  the AGVs will be used to transport containers  between the quay side  and the  container  yard  completely  without human  drivers.

    Delivery  is  expected in  the  second quarter  of  2017,  and  the  new  units  will join the  existing  eight hybrid - powered AGV s operating at  Pasir Panjang Terminal.  Emphasising PSA’s commitment to  sustainable business and green port  technologies, the  new AGVs will be battery - powered for zero - emission operations in the port area.

    Utilising  state - of - the - art  navigation  systems,  these  AGVs  will  b e  seamlessly  integrated  with  the existing AGV system  as part of on - going initiatives to develop port technology solutions for  the future automated Tuas Terminal.

    Of the 22 new units, 18 are being delivered by Finland - based Cargotec CHS,  2  by France - based  Gaussin  Manugistique , and  2  by  Japan - based Toyota  Industries.  Microvast  Power  Systems will provide the battery systems for all of the AGVs on order. To facilitate  battery  charging  during  operations,  PSA  has  awarded  the  contract  to  supply  3  a utomated  DC  charging stations to  Singapore - based  New Resource Technology.
