The Quebec Stevedoring Company Ltd. (QSL) has received new hydrogen-powered equipment at the Port of Montreal as green alternative to reduce emissions.
The hydrogen-powered equipment prototypes have been developed by European manufacturer Gaussin and received on 4 June.
Gaussin has worked in partnership with producer Charbone Hydrogen to design and develop vehicles and equipment for port and logistics operations.
The Montreal Port Authority has ordered the new equipment as part of its effort to introduce alternative lower-carbon fuels to replace traditional fossil fuels and accelerate the energy transition.
Just recently, the Port of Montreal formed a threefold alliance to strengthen the St. Lawrence River’s trade corridor in Canada to expedite decarbonisation and aid global supply chains.
The St. Lawrence River is the entry and exit route for a multitude of goods, food and materials traded with the rest of the world.
