Innovate BC is leading a project at the Port of Prince Rupert to introduce new zero and low-emission heavy-duty trucks (HDZEV). This initiative aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance sustainability in BC’s transport sector. Four trucks—hydrogen-powered, battery electric, and hydrogen-diesel co-combustion—will operate along existing routes to gather data on their performance and usage. Supported by $5.95 million from BC and Canadian governments, along with PRPA, the project includes infrastructure for charging and hydrogen production. It aligns with PRPA’s goal to cut carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and achieve neutrality by 2050. Testing will run until 2026, advancing BC’s adoption of zero-emission vehicles.
