Cargo Handling Equipment

OVERVIEW:

The Program is administered by a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors.  Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation.  Approximately $6.1 million in Program funding is expected to be available to South Coast AQMD for projects in the categories of ships at berth and cargo handling equipment.  The Program will fund shore power systems (grid-based and non-grid-based) at cargo ship berths and terminals that receive visits solely by vessels not subject to CARB’s Ship at Berth Regulation.  The Program will also fund ship emissions capture and control systems as well as cargo handling equipment utilizing zero emission power systems.

  • Determine the equipment lift capacity as identified on the manufacturer’s sticker/label on the piece of equipment.If this tag is missing or cannot be read, please check with your local dealer.

  • For replacement projects, keep the equipment in legal operating condition until delivered to a dismantler.

  • For replacement projects, old equipment must be scrapped in accordance with the requirements in the Program Guidelines.

  • Applicants may request reduced funding amounts to improve cost-effectiveness and competitiveness of the project.

  • Make sure your equipment has a readable/legible serial number tag on the unit and engine tag on the engine prior to any inspection (project pre-inspection and post-inspection).
