VDL provided a proven reliable container handling product with a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
In 2014 an operator in Singapore ordered AGVs of which among others those of VDL Automated Vehicles. Results of tests were compared to each other and indicated that AGVs of VDL performed with the highest MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and the lowest MTTR (Mean Time To Repair). Alongside with these figures VDL offers a proven reliable container handling product with the lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). This is achieved by delivering the best quality, MTBF and MTTR rates and ensures a sustainable container handling product.
These two AGVs are based on hybrid diesel-electric technology employing ultra-capacitors with optimised power train design for lower fuel consumptions. VDL’s modular design will ease maintenance and future upgrading. The specific power-pack can be readily upgraded to adopt new technologies found within or outside the VDL Groep. The focus will be to integrate these AGVs with a third party navigation system.
