LNG tractors for Singapore

PSA has ordered the tractors for its Pasir Panjang Terminals in Singapore. “As part of our commitment to reduce PSA Singapore’s overall carbon foot- print, 160 trucks will be coming on stream by end-2021. While electrification has been key in our efforts towards decarbonisation, we are gradually replacing our current prime mover fleet with these cleaner-fuel trucks,” said PSA.

 

PSA will use battery-powered AGVs for its new Tuas Mega Port terminal, which is slated to start operations this year. Pasir Panjang, however, will need to continue operating for some time yet. Singapore handled nearly 37M TEU in 2020, and PSA expects to keep operating Pasir Panjang until 2040.

 

The new LNG tractors were manufactured in China by the Shaanxi Automobile Group, which is headquartered in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, under its ‘Shacman’ brand. As well as supplying terminals in China, Shacman delivered 48 terminal tractors to a customer in Saudi Arabia last year. To increase global sales further, the company signed a strategic cooperation agreement with ZPMC last year, around the same time as it delivered its first machines to the port of Durban in South Africa.
