Bell Bay ITV – The apple of the Apple Isle’s eyeEnvironment

As we continue to explore partnership opportunities and new technologies to reduce our emissions footprint, the Qube Ports team at Bell Bay in Tasmania recently trialed a new electric Inter-Terminal Vehicle (ITV).

The Gaussin APM 75T Battery was built in Australia by Newport and uses simple battery swap technology, allowing for seamless and continuous operation.

Over a six-week period our team put the electric ITV through an extensive testing program.

The outcome was overwhelmingly positive, including some great feedback from operators who embraced this innovative solution.

By making the switch, we estimate that we have saved a remarkable 2,487kg of greenhouse gas emissions across the six-week trial, contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment for all.

Recognising the immense potential of the electric ITV, we are excited to explore further trials of this and other battery powered solutions in other Qube operations.
