TYCROP and Loop Energy to provide hydrogen electric solution for DP World pilot

TYCROP and Loop Energy have been selected to provide a hydrogen electric solution for DP World to decarbonise its rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) fleet at the Port of Vancouver, Canada.

The design and manufacturing of DP World's RTG pilot project is led by TYCROP Manufacturing Ltd and brings together a consortium of companies in British Columbia's burgeoning hydrogen sector, including Loop Energy as fuel cell supplier and HTEC for hydrogen fuel supply.

With 1500 RTGs operating globally, DP World is one of the world's largest port operators with over 80 terminals across 40 countries. DP World has committed to cut CO2 emissions from its global operations by nearly 700 000 t over the next five years and net zero carbon enterprise by 2050, which includes replacing its global fleet of assets from diesel to electric, investing in renewable power and exploring alternative fuels. With RTGs accounting for as much as 50% of shore-segment carbon emissions, DP World views development of a carbon-neutral solution for this segment of its operations as a critical component to achieving its overall decarbonisation strategy.

"Decarbonisation is a core focus for DP World, and we are proud to work with our local partners to deliver a solution to reduce CO2 emissions from our Vancouver terminal operations. This vital pilot project aligns with DP World's global commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2040," said Joel Werner, DP World General Manager, Vancouver.

The RTG pilot is expected to begin operation in Q224, and will be used as a demonstrator to scale the electrification across the organisation's global fleet in subsequent phases.
