Railpower to supply TSI Terminal Systems Inc. with hybrid power plants for rubber tyred gantry cranes


VANCOUVER and MONTREAL, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - TSI Terminal Systems Inc.
("TSI"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Orient Overseas International Limited
(HK: 0316), and Railpower Technologies Corp. (TSX: P) ("Railpower"), today
announced that they have agreed to test a hybrid diesel electric power unit
for use in rubber tyred gantry ("RTG") cranes. Railpower will develop and
supply three hybrid power plants to be installed by TSI on three new RTG
cranes in the first half of 2007.
RTG cranes are used for loading and unloading shipping containers in
ports and specialized container storage yards. RTG cranes are typically
powered by an on board diesel generator power plant. The power and energy
requirements of RTG cranes are highly suitable for a hybrid application which
will result in significant fuel savings and diesel emissions. Based on
preliminary calculations, Railpower estimates that its hybrid power plant will
reduce fuel consumption and green-house gas emissions on RTG cranes by up to
70%. Railpower also expects emission reductions in NOx and diesel particulates
to be similar to what has been achieved with the GG-series locomotives.
"The hybrid conversion of TSI's RTG cranes is a key part of our ongoing
efforts to reduce emissions. Our stated objective is to further reduce
emissions wherever practicable," said Norman Stark, President and CEO of TSI.
"We currently operate over 30 RTG cranes in the lower mainland. If the
prototype is successful, TSI intends to enter into a long-term agreement with
Railpower to retrofit all of our existing and new purchases of RTG cranes with
Railpower's hybrid power plant system."
"This order represents a significant milestone as we are advancing our
strategy of penetrating derivative markets for our hybrid technology," said
JosDe Mathieu, President and CEO of Railpower. "We have obtained a patent
pending for this hybrid design application and intend to pursue full
patenting. We anticipate taking the next six to nine months to develop the
prototypes, leveraging our past investments in research and development
related to our hybrid Green Goat(R) yard switchers. We believe this
application represents a significant new market opportunity for Railpower."
