CYCLECT is pleased to announce the signing of a Collaboration Agreement with CYBERDYNE INC to develop an advanced robotic solution and intelligence system for CAAS's Aviation Challenge 1. This collaboration is part of Cyclect's proposed solution which was selected to receive funding for further development.
Background of the Agreement
Singapore's aviation industry is facing a manpower crunch to keep up with the tremendous increase in global movement of people at Changi Airport. Faced with this challenging future, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has launched the Changi Aviation Challenge 1 to automate the baggage handling process for narrow body aircraft with minimal human intervention and oversight.
Cyclect’s proposal to automate the baggage handling system included the use and integration of robotic arms, tracking systems, intelligent trolleys and exoskeletons. Cyclect aims to reduce manpower dependency and increase productivity through process automation where possible, by upgrading laborious workers into robotics controllers. In areas where human intervention is necessary, Cyclect will provide futuristic tools to prevent chronic injury. This effort is also part of Cyclect's strategy to participate in the innovative field of robotics technology.
As part of the proposal, Cyclect will work with Cyberdyne, a leading Japanese robotics and technology company, well-known for their development of the HAL Robotic Exoskeleton Suit. The suit provides baggage handlers with supportive robotic exoskeletons that help to alleviate the pressure on their backs when lifting and carrying loads, thus increasing output and preventing chronic back pain.
By integrating Cyclect’s expertise and experience in providing engineering solutions that are environmentally and economically sustainable, with Cyberdyne's cutting edge products, the two companies intend to create a vision for the future airport with robot technologies.
Mr. Melvin Tan, Managing Director of Cyclect says: "As air travel continues to grow in Singapore, the industry faces the triple challenges of an aging labour population, lower birthrate and reduction of foreign workforce. It is crucial for Singapore to innovate and find solutions for labour-intensive operations such as baggage and cargo handling in airports and ports. The collaboration agreement is entered with a driven goal that, the brilliant products that Cyberdyne creates, complemented with the depth of Cyclect’s industry knowledge, will solve many of the future problems that Singapore will face. What was previously science fiction, is today Completely Possible."
The Collaboration Agreement Signing Ceremony was held at Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore on 29th July 2015. CYCLECT was represented by Managing Director, Mr. Melvin Tan and Director, Mr. Marcus Tan while CYBERDYNE was represented by CEO and President, Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai and Director and Head of Business Promotion Department, Mr. Kuno Takatoshi.

Cyclect Energy Pte Ltd (‘CYCLECT’), has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with PT. Berkat Manunggal Jaya (‘BMJ’) on a global collaboration for packaged power generating sets (‘genset’) and heat recovery solutions, witnessed by Minister of State Mr. Teo Ser Luck. This MOU marks a milestone in Cyclect’s heat recovery solution development by collaborating directly with an engine manufacturer and OEM. This collaboration will develop more efficient cogeneration and heat recovery products and packaged genset solutions. The products and solutions, together with the strong servicing and maintenance support structure from both companies will allow for a greater global market reach.
Over 1.2 billion people or 20% of the world’s population still do not have access to electricity, with 51% of these people in developing Asia. This collaboration aims to bring more affordable power to the world through increased efficiency in energy usage.
Mr. Teo Ser Luck said “Indonesia continues to be a key economic partner for Singapore. Its promising long term growth prospects, large market size, young labour force, and rising affluence of the middle class make Indonesia an attractive investment destination. Through this business mission, I hope more Singapore SMEs will seize these growth opportunities to build on existing ties and forge new partnerships with Indonesian businesses. We also look forward to working closely with the new Indonesian Administration to strength our economic engagement in mutually beneficial areas.”
Cyclect is a specialist developer of cogeneration and trigeneration plants, and a solutions provider for waste heat recovery solutions, energy efficiency and renewable energy implementations. Cyclect packages solutions to convert waste heat into other resources, such as cooling, heating, distilled water and electricity.
BMJ is a one of Indonesia’s leading companies with years of experience in the power business. Established in 1987, BMJ is a major player in Indonesia’s Independent Power Plant (IPP) and power generation market, and has achieved over 1000% growth between 1995 and 2000, leading to the company being awarded the 'MGS Top Sales World Wide' Award from Mitsubushi Heavy Industries (MHI) Japan for the genset packages in Indonesia.
