Port of Barcelona commits to zero- and low-emission fleet with 10 new ‘eco’ vehicles
The Port of Barcelona has added 10 alternative fuel vehicles to its service fleet with the goal of reinforcing its environmental policy and its commitment to sustainable mobility. All vehicles have the ECO label from the Spanish DGT (Directorate-General for Traffic).
Seven of these vehicles went to the Department of Conservation and Aids to Navigation: a 19-metre-high truck equipped with a lifting crane for people, a load lifting platform, a vehicle specifically adapted to provide the water supply service to the fuselages, and four light vans assigned to the Navigation Aids service that will be used for the conservation and maintenance of the lighthouses and the rest of the maritime signaling on the coast of Barcelona and Girona.
These four vans are equipped with a bi-fuel Autogas system, while the three commercial vehicles are equipped with dual fuel CNG engines. Finally, the Port replaced three gasoline-powered passenger cars with electric micro-hybrid units that also carry the ECO label.
The Port of Barcelona continues to work to achieve sustainable mobility within the port area by incorporating its own zero-emission vehicles or with an ECO environmental label (it currently has 42 electric vehicles and 10 with ECO label). For more information, please visit this link.
