Under the project, Termont Montreal will transform its
entire fleet into diesel-electric hybrid vehicles.
Following a pilot project that took place between April 1
and October 19, 2018, Termont Montreal is now transforming 57 additional
terminal tractors to reduce the port’s ecological impact, as CO2 emissions
decreased by 26 % and engine use by 46%.
“We are happy to be part of this announcement. Effenco’s
innovative technology adopted by Termont Montreal’s vehicles plays a major role
in the Port’s strategy to reduce its ecological impacts,” Sylvie Vachon,
President of the Port of Montreal, said.
“We are pleased that the Quebec government supports our
efforts and very proud to be the first port operator in the world to be
converting its entire fleet into hybrid vehicles, thus helping our communities
flourish in a real way,” Madeleine Paquin, President of Termont Montreal Inc.,
