The Aqaba Container Terminal Company is working with Jordan Advanced Alternative Energy and Transport Solutions (Jo-Adv) to save energy and cut emissions using the Canadian Tadger technology.

The first stage of the project saw coverage of 20% of the company’s needs, with 5.1% energy savings from 22 RTG gantry cranes, while cutting CO2 and poisonous emissions by a record-breaking 57.3%, said a statement.

Hassan Al Sayed, Jo-Adv general manager, said: “We are pleased to partner with ACT on fulfilling their environmental responsibilities through a program that facilitates environmental sustainability.

“We appreciate their commitment to save energy and reduce emissions, which have long since become a global problem, especially in industrialised countries, which impacts the world in direct and indirect ways. We hope that other industrial facilities and the land and sea transport industries would make use of this technology.”

“Tadger’s technology, however, is easy to install, and can provide energy savings of as much as 5%, recouping its cost in under a year and ultimately achieving higher revenues to the enterprise. It also protects engines and helps cut down on maintenance costs,” he added.

Tadger technology can also cut down on soot and smoke emitted from the smokestacks of factories and vehicle tailpipes, while also boosting the horsepower and torque of internal combustion engines, said the statement.

To ensure long-term quality and efficiency, Tadger was keen to build its product to last, using durable, rust-resistant materials, potentially prolonging the useful life of the product to decades, it added.
