FINLAND'S Konecranes has signed a contract with Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT) for 30 additional automated guided vehicles (AGVs) which will be delivered in Q4 2021 and commissioned by Q2 2022, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

LBCT currently operates a fleet of 72 lead-acid, battery-driven Konecranes Gottwald AGVs. Thirty new AGVs will complete the system that includes a Battery Exchange System (BES), transponder navigation and a fence control safety system. It was delivered turn-key, completely integrated in advance.



Konecranes will also provide pre-engineering for a second BES that will be installed for redundancy reasons as part of the final phase of the terminal's construction.



Said LBCT president Anthony Otto: 'We will now be increasing this fleet as part of the completion of the final phase of the new terminal's construction currently underway and scheduled to be finished in Q1 of 2022. Konecranes has been a fantastic partner and this additional purchase is a reflection of our confidence in their dedication to our partnership going forward.'



LBCT uses the TEAMS Equipment Control System (ECS) from TBA Group to manage travel orders, optimise routes, and avoid deadlock situations in the operation of the AGV fleet.
