Hamburg, 9 September 2022

Last month, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has installed and put into operation the final charging station for Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) at its Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) in Hamburg.

HHLA’s CTA Terminal now has 18 fast-charging stations, each housed in a 20-foot container, at its disposition to charge its AGVs with electricity produced by renewable sources.

The AGVs are able to drive automatically to the charging stations, and also the charging process is fully automated.

At the moment, 85% of HHLA’s AGV fleet is already battery-powered, but by 2023, the entire fleet will be converted to lithium-ion battery operations.
