Off-road Equipment data monitoring


The University of California at Riverside will provide support for data logging and potentially portable emissions measurement systems (PEMS) testing of off-road equipment. This will be conducted in support of the Port of Long Beach’s (POLB) prime contract effort with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to fund 2 battery-electric top handlers (Taylor/BYD) at the SSA terminal, and 1 battery-electric top handler, 1 battery-electric yard hostler (Kalmar/TransPower), and 1 fuel-cell yard hostler (CNHTC/LOOP Energy) at the LBCT terminal. In conjunction with these advanced technology equipment, one diesel top handler at LBCT, one diesel top handler at SSA Marine, and one diesel yard truck at LBCT will also be monitored.
