Port To Deploy Dannar Battery-Electrics
By Chad Elmore21 June 2018
DD Dannar LLC said it has partnered with California’s San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District in California to deploy the first Mobile Power Stations (MPS) at the Port of Stockton.
The MPS is an off-road battery-electric mobile platform that offers multi-function capabilities built by Dannar, a manufacturer of a purpose-built, off-road electric vehicle and energy platforms for governmental fleets. It is based in Muncie, Ind.
Funded in part by the California Air Resources Board through California Climate Investments, the project is expected to help accelerate the commercial deployment of zero-emission off-road technologies.
The Port of Stockton, an inland deepwater port located in the California city of the same name, will demonstrate two battery-electric 30,000 lb. capacity forklifts with additional cargo handling attachments, including a multi-purpose cargo truck bed and scissor-lift.
To support the battery-electric equipment, ChargePoint will install two dc fast-chargers at the port. The Powertrain Solutions North America division of Bosch USA will install telematics to collect data from the vehicles and provide analysis for the project.
