Off-Road: Ports and Marine

Reduce particulate matter, or soot, and other harmful emissions to improve air quality at ports and marine areas.

Globally, ports are sensitive areas with high vehicle density and they represent some of the worst air quality with higher levels of particulate matter and carbon emissions.

U.S. ports and waterways handle more than two billion tons of domestic and import/export cargo annually. By 2020, the total volume of cargo shipped by water is expected to be double that of 2001 volumes.

Much of total domestic production of basic commodities and finished products is shipped by water. In short, the nation's seaports serve as gateways to domestic and international trade, connecting large and small U.S. businesses to the expanding global marketplace.

This is further driving activity and conjunction around port areas, contributing to more PM, carbon emissions and further reduction in air quality.

Port activity on the water ranges from large oceangoing vessels to harbor tugs, including principal sources of power and auxiliary generator sets. On land, systems include gantry cranes, drayage trucks and other ground equipment to move containers to long-haul transportation.

Take advantage of our experience in port equipment retrofitting:

  • Yard tractors
  • Roll-on/roll-off vessels
  • Container handlers
  • Drayage trucks
  • Gantry cranes with diesel oxidation catalysts and mufflers

These emission control systems include AZ Purifier and Purimuffler® diesel oxidation catalysts and Purifilter® and Combifilter®diesel particulate filters.
