Red Hook Container Terminal Announces Operating Performance Results for its Fleet of 10 Heavy-Duty Z
"I am happy to report that the operating results for the BYD battery electric terminal tractors are truly outstanding,"
The battery electric tractors are being used to move cargo containers at the Red Hook Marine Terminal in Port Newark, as well as to make runs to the other terminals at Port Newark and Port Elizabeth, and to run to the Millennium Marine Rail facility.
Managed charging, provided by partner AMPLY Power's OMEGA software system, has been key to maintaining low fueling costs and ensuring vehicles are charged and ready to operate at the beginning of each shift.
"The Red Hook Terminal and the Port of Newark are a great proving ground for BYD's advanced and innovative battery electric technology. These results show that a hard-at-work operation like the Red Hook Terminal, and the community it serves, benefits from eliminating carbon from our atmosphere,"
