What You Will Learn

Legislation continues to push stricter standards for air quality, especially in urban areas. These demands are driving efforts to develop zero emission vehicles in ports, including material handling equipment. The electrification of container handlers shows the potential to replace today’s large diesel engines with new, cleaner technology. For electric mobile port equipment to be successful in the port environment, new design options must be considered to address two main challenges: sufficient power for range of operations and appropriate charging/refueling infrastructure.

Key Takeaways

- Learn about the development and integration of zero emissions technologies in container handling equipment
- Explore the inherent infrastructure challenges for port environments when transitioning to electric mobile port equipment
