Work on next gen technologies for container terminal ops gets $30m more in funding

An additional $30 million is being put into a programme to develop new technologies for container terminal operations. 

This follows a momorandum of understanding between the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and PSA Corporation to extend their collaboration under the Port Technology Research and Development Programme. 

Each party will pump in another $15 million, bringing the total amount committed towards the Programme to $50 million, up from the initial $20 million. 

The Programme will continue its focus on the key areas of port automation, intelligent planning and control systems, and green port solutions. 

The initial $20 million funding earmarked under the programme has since been committed towards research and test-bedding projects on Automatic Guided Vehicle or AGV systems, yard crane automation and wharf automation.
