cargo -- Seeking Information on Electric and/or Hybrid Off-Road Equipment

Posted: 06 May 2013 13:20:53
Attention Off-Road Equipment Manufacturers. 

ARB staff is collecting information on electric and/or hybrid
off-road equipment for a technology-assessment report directed to
equipment owners/operators at California ports and intermodal
rail yards. Equipment of interest includes a wide spectrum of
off-road equipment including container-handling equipment (such
as yard hostlers, side picks, reach stackers and rubber-tired
gantry cranes) and bulk-material handling equipment (such as
dozers, excavators, and material handlers).  This is not meant to
be an all-inclusive list of equipment.

Information collected will be incorporated into a report that
will characterize the technologies to help owners/operators with
equipment subject to ARBís Cargo Handling Equipment (CHE)
regulation to develop compliance strategies. 

If your company has or is developing electric and/or hybrid
off-road equipment and we have not yet contacted you to obtain
information, please contact us. You may contact Dimitri Stanich
at dstanich@arb.ca.gov or 916-324-0317.

For more information or if you have questions regarding this
matter please contact either Dimitri Stanich at
dstanich@arb.ca.gov or 916-324-0317 or Kirk Rosenkranz at
krosenkr@arb.ca.gov, or (916) 327-7843.

Background - Mobile Cargo-Handling Equipment at Ports and
Intermodal Rail Yards Regulation

The regulation applies to all diesel powered cargo handling
equipment operating at Californiaís ports and intermodal rail
yards.  Cargo-handling equipment is all equipment used to
transfer goods or perform maintenance and repairs, and includes:
yard trucks (hostlers), rubber-tired gantry cranes, top handlers,
side handlers, forklifts, and loaders.  Adopted in December 2005,
the regulation is designed to reduce diesel particulate matter in
communities located near ports and intermodal rail yards.

Additional Information on the regulation is available at the
following link:  http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/cargo/cargo.htm .
