Canadian Pacific Kansas City Limited (CPKC) and Teck Resources Limited (Teck) have entered into a long-term rail agreement for the transportation of steelmaking coal from Teck’s four operations in southeastern BC using CPKC’s hydrogen locomotives. The agreement will run until the end of 2026 and builds on existing services in place. In support of building green transportation corridors and as a shared commitment to sustainability, CPKC and Teck intend to collaboratively develop a unique pilot program that integrates the use of CPKC’s hydrogen locomotives into Teck’s steelmaking coal supply chain. It is anticipated that this effort will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with testing commencing in early 2024. The companies will also work together to increase the resiliency of the Canadian supply chain with investment in infrastructure and technology from origin through to destination.
