Red Hook Container Terminal Announces Operating Performance Results for its Fleet of 10 Heavy-Duty Z

NEWARK, N.J. - March 30, 2022 - PRLog -- Red Hook Container Terminals LLC announced today the results of the first full quarter of operating performance data for its fleet of 10 BYD Motors heavy-duty zero-emission battery electric terminal tractors being operated at its container terminal in Port Newark, New Jersey.  Red Hook's electric fleet achieved an 81% decline in fuel costs and a 90% drop in climate altering CO2 emissions.

"I am happy to report that the operating results for the BYD battery electric terminal tractors are truly outstanding," said Mike Stamatis, President & CEO of Red Hook Container Terminal LLC.  "We have recorded an 81% decline in fuel costs and a 90% decline in CO2 emissions, all while achieving 100% uptime of our terminal tractor fleet.  The BYD terminal tractors and Amply Power control systems are both working perfectly."

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," said Patrick Duan, Senior Vice President Operations, BYD North America.
