The Port of Hueneme will provide a $200,000 match to the grant funding for a total project cost of $3.2 million.
The equipment funded through the ZANZEFF grant will be used by the Port’s private customers to transport their cargo from the ship to the shore, with zero-emissions. The Port will now have two electric yard trucks and infrastructure to make charging electric cargo handling equipment feasible on-dock.
Kristin Decas, CEO & Port Director, mentioned:
The projects funded by this grant will lay the foundation for the next phase of green infrastructure and equipment at the Port, which will support electric cranes, electric cargo handling equipment, and a hydrogen-fuel-cell truck dedicated to moving our customer’s fresh produce to the market place.
