Innovate BC's HDZEV Project: Advancing Green Transportation at Port of Prince Rupert
Key Ideas
  • Innovate BC's Integrated Marketplace project introduces zero and low-emission heavy-duty trucks, including hydrogen-powered ones, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the Port of Prince Rupert.
  • The project received significant funding from the Government of British Columbia, Government of Canada, and the Prince Rupert Port Authority for purchasing vehicles and establishing necessary infrastructure.
  • Partnership with industry players like Velocity Truck Centres, Gat Leedm Logistics, and NuPort Robotics will ensure the successful operation and assessment of hydrogen-powered, battery-electric, and hydrogen-diesel co-combustion trucks until 2026.
  • The initiative aligns with the Prince Rupert Port Authority's sustainability goals by aiming to reduce port-related carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through the use of zero and low-emission vehicles.
Innovate BC is leading an Integrated Marketplace project at the Port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to introduce new zero and low-emission heavy-duty trucks for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainability in the transportation sector. The HDZEV project will deploy four trucks on existing routes, including two hydrogen-powered, one battery-electric, and one hydrogen-diesel co-combustion, to collect data on their range, reliability, and optimal use cases. The project received funding of $2.45 million from the Government of British Columbia, $3 million from the Government of Canada, and $500,000 from the Prince Rupert Port Authority to purchase vehicles and establish infrastructure like charging stations and local green hydrogen production. Partners like Velocity Truck Centres, Gat Leedm Logistics, and NuPort Robotics are involved in supporting the project's operations and data management. The initiative aims to assess and enhance the performance and feasibility of these vehicles until 2026.
