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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-324-0317. For more information or if you have questions regarding this matter please contact either Dimitri Stanich at email@example.com or 916-324-0317 or Kirk Rosenkranz at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 .
