Zero Emission Truck to move cargo from LA/LB Port

Seaport complex takes delivery of zero-emission hauling truck

The Tyrano class 8 rig looks like any other big rig, but a hydrogen fuel cell powers an electric drive, emitting only water from the tailpipe. The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are billing it as the world’s first zero-emission heavy-duty hydrogen rig. If it performs to expectations during an 18-month test, Total Transportation plans to order at least 100 more.

This represents a significant development in the utilization of advanced green technology as well as the important business of transporting goods from the nation’s largest port complex.
