Hamburg Port Gets Fleet of Renault Electric Vans
24 Kangoo Maxi Z.E. (zero emission) vans from Renault will be used to transport personnel carbon-free at the HHLA Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT). The fleet is part of the 'Hamburg - Wirtschaft am Strom' (Hamburg - Current Affairs) project, which is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) as part of its Electric Mobility Pilot Regions programme.
Achim Schaible, CEO of Renault Deutschland AG, handed over a fleet of 24 Kangoo Maxi Z.E. to Klaus-Dieter Peters, Chairman of the HHLA Executive Board, providing the HHLA Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT) with what is now the largest fleet of electric vehicles at a port terminal in the North Range. The award-winning Kangoo Z.E. vans are powered by electricity from renewable sources and are used to transport people around the terminal.
At their forecast annual mileage at the Tollerort terminal, the Kangoos will use around 50,000 kWh of electricity from renewable sources. This is less than half the volume of electricity produced annually by the solar power unit that HHLA had installed on the roof of the CTT workshop in 2011 in cooperation with Hamburg Energie. For HHLA, this is another important step towards its target of reducing specific carbon dioxide emissions per container handled by 30 percent by 2020.
