Opportunity charging for Singapore

As has been reported previously, PSA has ordered 160 AGV for its Tuas Mega Port project. VDL Group will be supplying 80 AGVs, while the other 80 machines will be delivered by Singapore’s ST Engineering, pursuant to its licensing agreement with Gaussin Manugistique.

 

PSA ran a separate tender for the AGV charging system, and this has been awarded to ST Engineering. All the AGVs will be integrated with ST Engineering’s Automated DC Charge Points that fast charge the AGV within 20 minutes.

 

Not every battery type can support fast charging, but the PSA AGVs have been specified with LTO (Lithium-ion titanite) batteries. The advantage of LTO is that the chemical composition allows for fast-charging.

 

There is still a difference of opinion in the industry over whether fast-charging on the terminal is scalable to a very large fleet of machines, but PSA has clearly decided fast-charging is the best option for its Tuas Mega Port. “This new value added feature from ST Engineering strengthens PSA Tuas Port’s competitive advantage as the single largest automated container terminal in the world,” ST Engineering said.
