Gaussin & ST Engineering extend AGV agreement

Gaussin Manugistique has announced the award of eight licenses, four exclusive and four non-exclusive, for a period of three years with Singapore Technologies Engineering Land Systems (STELS), which is majority-owned by the State of Singapore.


The agreement is for “the manufacture, promotion, distribution and marketing” of Gaussin’s AGV PERFORMANCE FULL ELEC "Ultra Fast Charge” design.


The four exclusive licenses are granted for the territories of Saudi Arabia, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and South Korea and the non-exclusive licenses for the territories of Indonesia, Qatar, the Philippines and Oman.


“The immediate objective for STELS is to be able to apply jointly with GAUSSIN for the various calls for tender in progress and to come in these territories,” Gaussin stated. Gaussin and STELS already have a 20-year agreement covering Singapore, which enabled ST Engineering to win half of PSA’s first purchase of 160 AGVs for Tuas Mega Port. “The technology transfer is being finalised and the assembly of the first vehicles will be finalised beginning of 2020,” Gaussin added.


Gaussin said the new agreements confirm its expertise and the value of its patents in “reliable and robust autonomous electric heavy vehicles". With regard to meeting tender conditions imposed on equipment OEMs (including financial requirements), Gaussin said its licensing sales model “meets the demand of strategic partners for the development of their long-term and large-scale projects. The model also confirms the interest shown by major international industrial groups in the technology developed by GAUSSIN for its new range of products intended for the port, airport, logistics and industrial sectors”.


The announcement disclosed that the PSA is planning to call for tenders for the second stage of its AGV procurement for Tuas Mega Port shortly. “The call for tenders concerning the second lot of AGVs is planned for 2020 and will allow the GAUSSIN Group and STELS to bid together for a new additional quantity of 200-300 AGV PERFORMANCE. It will be the largest port AGV call for tenders in history”. In order to manage the planned capacity for Tuas of 65M TEU per year, Gaussin reminded the market, “Singapore will launch successive calls for tender to acquire up to 2,000 over a ten-year delivery period”.
