MONTREAL, Que. — Termont Montreal will transform its entire fleet into hybrid vehicles, which will make it the world’s first port operator to do so, Quebec’s transportation minister has announced.
Quebec has granted $1.4 million to support Termont Montreal in the adoption of Effenco’s Active Stop-Start technology.
“The government of Quebec is proud to support this innovative project that will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the Port of Montreal during container handling,” said the minister of transport, Francois Bonnardel.
“This important initiative continues to demonstrate the leadership of Quebec companies, and is a concrete step towards ensuring better energy efficiency in the freight transportation industry.”
“In doing so, the port reduces nearly half of fine particulate matter produced by vocational vehicles and 39% of nitrogen oxide, two contaminants that are extremely harmful to the health of employees, who are exposed to these on daily,” Effenco said.
