ordiesel -- Off-Road Diesel Reporting Tool Update and Two-Engine Cranes Posted: 23 Dec 2008 17:41:47
ARB staff have made additions to the off-road diesel vehicle online reporting tool (DOORS) which allow fleets to complete the initial reporting, including all special cases. Fleets which have not yet reported are encouraged to begin the reporting process. We STRONGLY encourage fleets to report early so they have more time to label their vehicles and can get more support if necessary from ARB staff. The reporting deadline for large fleets, those with over 5,000 horsepower of applicable off-road diesel vehicles, is April 1, 2009. The reporting deadline for fleets between 2,501 and 5,000 horsepower is June 1, 2009, and for fleets with 2,500 or less horsepower the deadline is August 1, 2009. Previously DOORS was available for initial reporting but did not allow reporting of all special cases. DOORS now allows fleets to report the following special cases: • Vehicles which were repowered with cleaner engines, • Engines with non-standard emissions certifications, • Vehicles involved in an incentive funding program (like Carl Moyer or SOON), • Non-diesel vehicles, or systems, to receive credit for replacing off-road diesel vehicles, and • Tier 0 vehicles which were retired between March 1, 2006, and March 1, 2009, for early credit towards the regulation. The reporting tool, instruction manuals, and guides to reporting are available at https://secure.arb.ca.gov/ssldoors/doors_reporting/reporting.php. For assistance with reporting, you may call (877)59-DOORS, or email firstname.lastname@example.org Additionally, ARB staff would like to be sure affected fleets are aware that two-engine cranes were approved to be added into the off-road regulation at the December 12, 2008, Board hearing. Once the approved requirements become effective (expected late in 2009), both engines in two-engine cranes will be included in the off-road regulation reporting and emissions requirements, regardless of whether the crane is used on-road or off-road, or whether the crane’s secondary engine is already registered as a portable engine. Fleets may report two-engine crane engines along with their initial reporting in 2009 if they wish. More information regarding the two-engine crane provisions is available on p. 35 of the on-road truck and bus regulation staff report at http://www.arb.ca.gov/regact/2008/truckbus08/tbisor.pdf
