DP World Callao is the first port terminal in the world to acquire ITVs electric vehicles Additional

DP World Callao, concessionaire of the South Pier of the Port of Callao, has acquired a fleet of 20 internal transfer electric vehicles (ITVs), thus being the first port in the world to have a fleet of vehicles with this new technology. Additionally, 12 RTG cranes and 3 electric QC cranes were acquired, as part of the investment made in the Bicentennial Dock expansion megaproject and its commitment to the environment.

This new electrical equipment will arrive in Callao in mid-2023 and will be part of said expansion project, which represents an investment of US$350 million and will allow it to meet a greater demand for containers for the benefit of the Peruvian economy.

This purchase will help to significantly reduce the terminal's emissions by 2030. Thus, from the beginning of 2022, the only equipment that will be purchased for DP World will be electric. In addition, it aims to electrify all of its diesel RTGs (25) and all of its diesel trucks (41) to further reduce its carbon footprint.

"We are very proud to confirm that the DP World Callao Port Terminal is becoming fully electric. This purchase represents a reduction of 1.5 million liters of diesel each year. In addition, we will start converting diesel equipment to electric equipment to reach the carbon neutrality," said Nicolás Gauthier, CEO of DP World in Peru.

This initiative is part of DP World's worldwide commitment to the environment. Its sustainability strategy, called Our World, Our Future, is developed in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in order to have a positive economic and social impact on society.
