Propane for Ports
Propane can power it all, from light- and medium-duty vehicles, to terminal tractors and forklifts, to commercial generators and marine vessels.
Cleaner Than Electric
Many ports turn to electric equipment to meet environmental regulations, but propane reduces harmful emissions — including SOx — at a better price point.
No matter how you're using it, propane brings the power your port crews need to accomplish every task. In forklifts, for example, electric options tend to lose power throughout a shift. Propane forklifts operate at 100 percent for the duration of a cylinder.
More Cost Efficient
Propane equipment delivers a low total cost-of-ownership, reducing your equipment, maintenance, and infrastructure costs.
Propane forklifts bring powerful performance to both indoor and outdoor jobs. They’re also proven to operate significantly cleaner than electric and diesel options.
Propane autogas has been a longtime trusted fuel for light-duty vehicles. Its reliable, clean performance and reduced maintenance expenses make it a great choice for ports that want low-emissions vehicles that also cut total cost-of-ownership.
Keep more vehicles on the job and out of the shop. Medium-duty propane autogas vehicles are known for their reliability and power, on top of reducing costs compared with conventional fuels.
Terminal tractors need plenty of fuel, so choose the most cost-efficient option available. Propane is suited for powering large-capacity loads, often while reducing fuel costs compared with gasoline and diesel.
Marine vessels burning diesel fuel are the primary source of combustion-related emissions at port facilities, according to the EPA. Clean up your work with propane marine vessels.
Loss of grid power can occur at any time, and when it does, can impact vital systems and have a significant impact on your port’s operation. Commercial propane generators are trusted by hospitals, fire and police departments, and more to ensure uninterrupted operation and peace of mind.
Storage & Distribution
Propane can be stored onsite in a secure tank, so your crew can refill their own empty cylinders for convenient refueling. Depending on your needs, your local propane supplier can also deliver full cylinders to your site to replace the empty ones.
