Metro Ports Introduces Cleaner Locomotive Engine in Long Beach

Posted February 1, 2021

LONG BEACH, CA, February 1, 2021 – Metro Ports, a nationwide leader in stevedoring services, announced today another step in its ongoing commitment to environmental excellence by purchasing a second, ultra-low emissions (“Tier 4”) locomotive engine for its Pier “G” operations at the Port of Long Beach.

The first unit, produced by “National Railway Equipment Company”, was purchased when the technology was still considered experimental. With their recent $1.2M investment, Metro Ports expects to reduce air emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and reactive organic gas (ROG) by over 4.5 tons over the next 15 years. This represents a significant improvement in air quality emissions over the local industry standard of currently operating Tier 2 equipment. The "Tier" number is a classification assigned to operating equipment by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), with a higher tier being assigned to cleaner-burning equipment with lower emissions. These improvements are not required by regulatory agencies but a voluntary, proactive step to lead the charge in environmental stewardship.
