Port vehicles and equipment

Making Ports Greener

Port and maritime applications are in the vanguard as drivers for accelerating hydrogen adoption. Container handling and other diesel equipment used around the clock at shipping ports are a source of significant local air pollution and greenhouse gases, compounded by emissions from heavy-duty trucks that travel within and beyond port boundaries and from vessels approaching from the sea or used in the harbor.

Diesel-powered vehicles and equipment that can be replaced with fuel cell electric powertrains include the following:

  • Cranes and gantries
  • Empty and laden container handlers
  • Terminal tractors
  • Drayage trucks and other commercial vehicles
  • Buses

Equipped with green hydrogen infrastructure, ports will be at the epicenter of global clean energy transformation. Hydrogen-powered vehicles meet the intensive duty cycles, unpredictable and long-distance routes, charging infrastructure uncertainty, and high auxiliary power requirements of many heavy-duty work cycles associated with port operations.

Hyster® Fuel Cell Electric Container Handler

Nuvera® E-Series Fuel Cell Engines, which are available today, can meet many power needs within port ecosystems, including motive and stationary applications shown above.

Nuvera is working with Hyster-Yale Group (HYG) to deliver high-performance alternatives to diesel port equipment. The new Hyster® fuel cell top loading container handler powered by Nuvera will soon be at work in the Port of Los Angeles, another indication that the future of clean, hydrogen-powered port equipment has arrived.

Nuvera-Powered Port Vehicles and Equipment

Nuvera will power other heavy-duty electric vehicles currently under development, including a reachstacking container handler and a terminal tractor. Here is a roundup of Nuvera’s latest port-related initiatives.
