Description

These slides describe how the Georgia Ports Authority is reducing emissions and fuel consumption through technology and smart decisions.

1,857,000 Gallons of fuel are saved annually by electrifying ship-to-shore cranes. All 27 ship-to-shore cranes at the GPA have been converted from diesel to electric power.

4 eRTGs GPA has purchased four electric rubber-tire gantry cranes in a pilot program to reduce fuel consumption. eRTGs use up to 95% less fuel by only using diesel when moving between container rows.

6,850,000 Gallons of fuel are saved annually through energy-saving programs, electrification and efficient upgrades. GPA uses only ultra-low-sulfur diesel and continues to explore the use of alternative fuel to replace diesel-powered jockey trucks.

4,500,000 Gallons of diesel fuel are saved each year by using electrified refrigerated container racks. GPA has installed 84 electrified refrigerated container racks (2,016 container slots), avoiding the use of diesel generators and cutting energy costs.

8 MINUTE Reduction in turn times achieved after construction of GPA’s Cross Terminal Roadway. Technology and infrastructure investments, such as the award-winning five lane Cross Terminal Roadway, minimize truck idling and turn times.

2,000 lbs of cargo can be carried 500 miles by rail on a single gallon of fuel. The Port of Savannah is the only single terminal operation on the East Coast with on-terminal access to two Class 1 rail lines: Norfolk Southern and CSX. Moving freight by rail reduces traffic congestion, energy demand and emissions.
