PSA Singapore is ranked the world?s largest container transshipment hub. Its excellent network services link shippers to shipping lines with connections to 600 ports globally. In 2020, PSA Singapore terminals handled 36.6 million TEUs of containers (TEU: twenty-foot equivalent units). To anticipate the future growth in global trade, PSA is constructing the new mega port at Tuas. This future port will feature totally automated terminal operations.

Sustainable efficiency

PSA is testing all these processes in their current operations at the Pasir Panjang Terminal in the preparation for this new automated mega port. A part of this development is based on the fully battery-powered AGVs (automated guided vehicles), which have a carrying capacity of 65 tons and a cruising speed of 25 km/h. With electrical drive, they are more energy-efficient, require less maintenance, and positively reduce CO2 emissions for port operations.

For the highest efficiency of the operation in terms of both time and costs, recharging the batteries of the AGVs needs to be fully automated, reliable, and very fast. The automatic rapid charging solution QCC by St

High performance and fully dependable

Designed for high numbers of mating cycles, the Sturs of continuous operation with less than 20 minutes of charging time.

In close co-operation with the PSA engineering team, the final adaptions on the functionalities of the QCC system have been implemented. This approach makes sure that the integrated angular and positioning misalignment compensation at the QCC charging station suits the automated arrival and departure of the AGVs. To meet the operating outdoor environmental challenges at the port, ingress protection has been enhanced according to the customer?s specifications.
