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.

Nuvera has powered a Hyster® top-pick container handler with two Nuvera E-45 Fuel Cell Engines at the Port of Los Angeles in Long Beach, California. The zero-emissions container handler is in operation at Fenix Marine Services, a terminal operator owned by the CMA CGM Group. The project is funded by the California Air Resources Board and an initiative of California Climate Investments.

Nuvera is powering a hydrogen fuel cell reach stacker that Hyster has developed and shipped to the Port of Valencia in Spain. The container handler is currently in operation at MSC, one of the largest container terminals in Europe. It is part of the H2Ports project, which aims to introduce hydrogen-powered vehicles and equipment in port operations.
