JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Nett Technologies Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada has won the bid to design, manufacture and install nineteen Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC) onto several large container cranes, generator, forklift and trucks owned and operated by the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT).
The JAXPORT emissions retrofit project was made possible by a $570,000 grant awarded by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and funded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This grant was established to assist JAXPORT’s efforts to voluntarily reduce diesel emissions at their Talleyrand and Blount Island Marine terminals. The installation of these retrofit catalysts will reduce overall JAXPORT emissions by 10 tons per year, said a release.
“The JAXPORT project presented its own share of unique installation challenges. If it weren’t enough that the project required completion before the Atlantic hurricane season; there were also a wide variety of equipment types, engine sizes, positions and available installation space making this project truly unique. Each of the individually custom designed DOC systems needed to be installed with the utmost of skill and precision. Thankfully, Beard Equipment with the assistance of JAXPORT were instrumental in overcoming this challenging installation," said Stephen Ashton, Lead Design Engineer at Nett Technologies.
“It was definitely a rewarding project, especially given the fact that we only had 90 days to complete the project from start to finish. Nonetheless, with the combined efforts of JAXPORT and Beard Equipment, we were able to complete this project within the stipulated budget and timeline. All stakeholders involved in this project have every reason to celebrate its successful completion," said Ashton.
