The Montreal Port Authority signed a cooperation and development agreement with Greenfield Global, to identify, conceive and implement green energy solutions, among which are green hydrogen, ethanol and methanol.
n recent years, the Port of Montreal has taken several actions to significantly reduce its GHG emissions. More specifically, it has rolled out more than 20 shore power connection points where wintering and cruise ships can plug in dockside, a fleet of fully hybrid service vehicles, an LNG refuelling solution and next-generation low-GHG emitting locomotives.
Developing low-carbon fuels is the way of the future for the transportation industry. The Port of Montreal wants to position itself among the forerunners and strengthen its position as a leader on the St. Lawrence in terms of sustainable development. Our trade objectives are integral to our sustainable development objectives, and we firmly believe that this alignment will help boost the competitiveness of the St. Lawrence
