Wan Hai Lines have signed a cooperation agreement with a Californian company, Advanced Environmental Group LLC (AEG), to construct a barge fitting with Advanced Maritime Emissions Control System (AMECS), which connects to the exhaust ports of container ships to scrub pollution while calling the Port of Long Beach.

AMECS barge system has been awarded several patents in USA and is the only alternative to shore power granted the approval by California Air Resource Board (CARB). “We believe that the AMECS solution is the most flexible alternative to meeting the CARB requirements. By utilizing a barge-based solution, we will be able to deploy the most suitable ships for our services for many years to come,” said Randy Chen, Vice Chairman of Wan Hai Lines.

“As the Green Port, Long Beach encourages and supports innovative ways to meet State and Federal environmental requirements. We believe that environmental sustainability and economic prosperity are two sides of the same coin and we are always looking for new approaches to reach our zero emissions goal. We applaud Wan Hai for their commitment to green operations. ” Port of Long Beach CEO Jon Slangerup remarked.
