  • Cornelis van der Lelylaan 1, 3155 RM Maassluis, Netherlands

Company Description

At Lely, we believe in achieving a sustainable, profitable and agreeable future for dairy farmers by combining robotisation, engineering and farming expertise.

It all started with a dream cherished by two brothers in Maassluis 70 years ago, and ever since, we have worked to become innovative market leaders in automated systems for dairy farmers across the globe. With a team of 1,600 professional specialists, we work constantly to bring about revolutionary solutions for the agro industry. We are based at our Maassluis Campus, a building which features the highest sustainability performance possible, not just in the Netherlands, but on a global scale. Our overall objective: making dairy farming interesting, also for the coming generations.

Job Description

The Discovery collector is a robot that navigates between the cows and collects their manure.  The manure is collected in the tank of the collector and dumped in a pit every route. However, if the manure is too sticky or there is too much sand in the barn, some manure remains in the tank of the collector. When this happens more often, it influences the machine performance. We want a mechanism that prevents this from happening, where the focus is on sustainability.
