Antwerp Terminal Services (ATS), a joint venture between PSA Antwerp and MPET, and CMB.TECH is pleased to invite you to the official inauguration of the world’s first Hydrogen Dual Fuel Straddle Carrier at PSA’s Noordzee Terminal in the Port of Antwerp-Bruges.

This state-of-the-art technology was developed by the cleantech company CMB.TECH and with the support of ATS integrated into the straddle carrier. The machine runs on a mix of hydrogen and diesel and can therefore play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions at port terminals.

Please note that this information is under embargo until 30 March 3 PM.
