Robotic charging specialist Rocsys has signed an order of agreement with marine terminal operator SSA Marine to supply ROC-1 autonomous charging systems. The systems will autonomously charge part of the electric yard tractor fleet of SSA Marine at the International Container Terminal at the Port of Oakland.
The project is partially funded by a $50 million grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to the Port of Long Beach to fund emissions-free and “near-zero” equipment and vessels at three California ports, including Long Beach, Stockton and Oakland. According to the organizers, the Sustainable Terminals Accelerating Regional Transformation (START) project will deploy over 100 pieces of zero-emissions terminal equipment and port drayage trucks.
“Last year we opened our first office in North America in Portland, Ore. and built a highly skilled technical team to support our US customers closely,” said CEO of Rocsys, Crijn Bouman, adding: “Delivering such an inspiring project within that first year is a testament to our ability to respond to customer needs and deliver on their vision for sustainability.”
Two years ago , Rocsys was focusing on heavy-duty electric vehicle charging with electric buses, but has expanded their focus with a major investment round last year, after which the US office was opened.
