Port of LA creates emissions-free demonstration terminal

The Port of Los Angeles is teaming up with Pasha Stevedoring and Terminals (PST) to create a functioning green-principled port which will stand as a demonstration of how near-zero pollutant emissions is a realistic goal for port operations.

The Green Omni Terminal Demonstration Project will be a marine terminal that generates almost all its power from renewable resources.

It will feature electric vehicles and cargo-handling equipment plus a microgrid that includes solar generation, battery storage and an energy management system to maximize usage.

The project costs $26.6m and has a $14.5m grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Los Angeles is the busiest port in the US by container volume. PST is the third-largest west coast independent terminal operator.
