First contract for 2 vehicles for the Port of Abidjan
HERICOURT, FRANCE – EQS – 26 March 2019 – GAUSSIN Manugistique (EURONEXT GROWTH FR0010342329) has announced the signing of a “Preferred Supplier Agreement”, a framework contract valid until 31 December 2025, with Unicaf, the Bolloré group’s central purchasing arm, for the 100% electric APM 75T “HE” (Hot Environment) equipped with Blue Solutions’ LMP® POWERPACK®.
This framework contract is the outcome of the contract signed between Gaussin and Bolloré Ports in February 2018 (cf. press release dated 19 February 2018) on the co-development of the APM 75T. The vehicle has been designed to take account of the specific techniques used by BOLLORE PORTS in the ports it operates. At the same time Gaussin signed a second contract with Blue Solutions with a view to integrating Blue Solutions LMP® Powerpack into Gaussin vehicles. The APM 75T will therefore be equipped with the LMP® Powerpack.
The framework contract has already led to a 1st order for 2 APM 75T HE vehicles for the port of Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire, which is operated by Bolloré Ports.
The APM 75T HE will be officially presented to the market at the TOC Europe-Rotterdam trade fair in June 2019.
