554 Oakland

 

The Port of Oakland is converting 13 diesel-powered yard cranes to hybrid power by equipping them with batteries and new, smaller diesel backup engines. The conversion is expected to bring a 45-ton reduction in diesel-related air pollutants annually. The first crane has already been converted and was brought into service on March 5. The rest of the cranes are expected to undergo conversion by next year.
