Straddle carriers, enabling the loading and unloading in a port without the assistance of cranes or forklifts, allow for more efficient terminal operations.
Traditionally powered by diesel, they have faced challenges in terms of long refuelling times.
PIONEERS consortium partners Air Liquide and PSA Antwerp aim to create an innovative solution: a high-speed Hydrogen Refuelling Station for straddle carriers in ports terminal. This demo presents a technical challenge as these machines require a high-speed swift refuelling to sustain uninterrupted operations. If successful, it will contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future for port operations.
