Cargo-Handling Equipment and Public Fleets Retrofits

Location: Washington ports

The West Coast Collaborative funded the Washington State Department of Ecology (ECY) $1,730,000, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, in April 2009, to install exhaust retrofit emissions control technologies, engine repowers and engine upgrades on cargo handling equipment at ports in Washington State. A portion of the funding will also be used to launch an idle reduction program for public fleets and install idle reduction technologies on public fleet vehicles.
