Kalmar has signed a Software Maintenance and Support Agreement with PSA Singapore covering the entire AGV fleet at Singapore.
Under the deal Kalmar will provide software maintenance and support for PSA’s AGV fleet, which Kalmar said is expected to grow to over 400 units by the completion of first phase of PSA Tuas Port expansion in a few years’ time, for five years. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q3 2019 order intake and the contract will come into effect from Q4/2019 onwards.
PSA plans to use AGVs at Tuas Mega Port, which will eventually have a capacity of 65M TEU and replace all the existing 67 berths at the Tanjong Pagar, Keppel, Brani and Pasir Panjang terminals.
“The Software Maintenance and Support Agreement with PSA Singapore covers the Navigation and Fleet Maintenance Systems for the AGVs. The services include software development work, remote and frontline maintenance support as well as professional services that aim to sustain and improve the fleet’s performance with the help of Kalmar Fleet Management System. The original Kalmar system for the AGV Program at PSA was delivered in 2014, and it has proven to be dependable and robust", Kalmar said in a statement.
Ismo Matinlauri, Vice President, Automation Solution Sales APAC, Kalmar said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to further strengthen our long-term relationship with PSA through this comprehensive maintenance and support agreement. This is a significant milestone for both parties and lays the groundwork for Kalmar to further support PSA in optimising and expanding their AGV operations."
