Patrick Terminals introduces first electric terminal trucks to Fremantle operations

The ARENA-funded project is expected to help Patrick Terminals’ transition towards electric vehicles

Australian container terminal company Patrick Terminals has announced that it will introduce nine electric terminal trucks and charging infrastructure to its Fremantle operations. 

The project has been injected with $2.5 million in funding by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) as part of its Driving the Nation Program that supports investment in vehicle electrification. 

Patrick Terminals says the project marks an Australian first in the port industry’s transition towards electric vehicles (EVs) and aligns with its commitment to decarbonisation. 

Patrick Terminals CEO Michael Jovicic says the project is a significant step towards electrification and reducing emissions in its Fremantle operations. 

“This project allows Patrick Terminals to lead the port industry’s transition to EVs, deploying nine battery electric terminal trucks and fast chargers at our Fremantle operations,” Jovicic says. 

“The introduction of electric terminal equipment at our Fremantle operations is an exciting initiative that demonstrates our ongoing commitment to investing capital in our Fremantle terminal to support the longevity of its operations. 

“It also aligns with our commitment to decarbonising our operations.”
