CTE joins a team led by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) in a project to design, build, and demonstrate a zero-emission drayage truck for goods movement between the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and inland freight terminals. Because this hydrogen-powered truck emits only water, every trip it make will clean the air by displacing a polluting diesel truck.
CTE has partnered with industry leaders, Kenworth (PACCAR), BAE Systems, and Ballard Power Systems to develop the drayage truck for the project. TTSI will operate the truck in drayage service. The ZECT project was funded in part by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), U.S. Department of Energy and the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
CTE is also installing a hydrogen fueling station near the ports to fuel the CTE truck as well as trucks built by other teams for SCAQMD.
