Cargo ship ready to off load at Oakland Port.

The Port of Oakland has several environmental initiatives coming to fruition.

The port and TraPac are collaborating on upgraded terminal equipment to reduce emissions. TraPac will convert three rubber tire gantry (RTG) cranes from diesel to hybrid-diesel. They will also purchase three new hybrid RTGs. This upgrade will be completed by the end of 2024 and will reduce the emissions by 95% per crane. The port will assist in the emission reducing strategy by reimbursing TraPac up to 35% of the cost the equipment.

Over the next twelve years, the Port of Oakland will be purchasing $13.5M of green geothermal energy from Geyser Power Company. This purchase will meet roughly 10% of the port’s overall power needs.

The Port of Oakland was awarded $42M to aid their decarbonization efforts. The total costs of their projects is $60M, so this award goes a long way to meeting their ends goals.
