ABC member Clean Energy is set to fuel 20 ultralow-NOx yard tractors with Redeem™ renewable liquified natural gas (RLNG) at the Port of Los Angeles for a demonstration by the California Energy Commission (CEC) that will examine clean fuel alternatives. The largest port in the country, the Port of Los Angeles was awarded a $5.8 million state grant by the CEC to purchase and test a new fleet of zero and near-zero emission yard tractors—20 with Cummins Westport L9N natural gas engines and five powered by electric batteries—at the 205-acre Everport marine container terminal. By incorporating these vehicles into daily operations, the new yard equipment will be evaluated in a real world setting for their operational efficiency, viability, reductions of NOx and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and fuel savings.
