Electric motorway between Los Angeles and Long Beach

06. August 2014

According to SPIEGEL Online, Siemens closed a contract with the Southern Californian environmental authority to electrify the Californian Interstate 710. As part of the overall “Zero Emissions Corridor” project, this electrification project aims at exploring ways to reducing CO2 emissions caused by road traffic. Electric delivery trucks, equipped with Siemens eHighway overhead contact lines technology, will be tested on a heavily used road section between Los Angeles and Long Beach, two large US port cities. The technology is said to be especially well suited for short distances with many commuting vehicles, for instance, between ports, industrial facilities or central embarkment hubs.
