Electric Forklifts Cut Emissions at UK Port
March 26,2020 –GreenPort.com
A fleet of electric forklift trucks has arrived at a UK port as part of an ongoing effort to reduce emissions and make more use of renewable energy generated onsite. ABP Port of Hull’s new electric Linde Material Handling forklifts has rechargeable batteries that are easy to remove and charge within a 12 hour period, ensuring the vehicles are ready to go when required. ABP is currently installing a GB£6.8m solar array at the Port of Hull, set to be completed by contractors Custom Solar later this year. Longer-term the electric forklifts will be charged from the energy supplied by this solar array.
