Busan Port Authority, reduces fine dust in Busan Port Through Environment Friendly Equipment Development
Signed a technology execution contract with Hyundai Material Co., Ltd. to expand the supply of after exhaust treatment system that reduces 80% emissions of (diesel) transfer cranes.
The Busan Port Authority (BPA, CEO Gichan Nam) announced the signing of technical implementation agreement with Hyundai Materials Co., Ltd. on September 9 to expand the supply of transfer crane exhaust after-treatment system developed last year to reduce fine dust in the harbor.
Transfer crane is a loading and unloading equipment for moving and lifting containers in the yard, and although all 239 units in Busan New Port are operated as electric system, the North Port has been concerned about the emissions of harmful gases (PM10, PM2.5, SOx, NOx, etc.) because 37 of 122 units are using a diesel system.
To solve this problem, last year, the Busan Port Authority, with a budget of approximately 200 million won, developed a post-treatment system through the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials and Hyundai Materials Co., Ltd. to collect and process exhaust gas emissions from (diesel) transfer cranes, and as a test operation of installing 1 unit on Shingamman Wharf in North Port of Busan Port, it was confirmed that the post-exhaust treatment system reduces emissions of fine dust and nitrogen oxides by more than 80%.
Hence, to expand the distribution of exhaust after-treatment systems, BPA signed a technology implementation contract with Hyundai Material Co., Ltd., which has been involved in technology development since last year.
CEO Gichan Nam announced that "We will continue to work to improve the air quality in Busan and to advance the working environment of port workers by preemptively developing technology so that the Busan Port could operate as an eco-friendly unloading equipment”.
On one side, the transfer crane exhaust after-treatment system costs about 80 million won per unit, and as it costs about 3 billion won to attach all 37 transfer cranes operating in the North Port, it is true that it is a burden to the North Port terminal operators who are having difficulties in management.
Especially the transfer cranes are not classified as construction machinery under the Implementation of the Construction Machinery Management Act, therefore it is difficult for the government to support the budget. In order to expand the pilot project and encourage the active participation of the wharf operators, there is a desperate need of government and local government subsidies in accordance with Article 15 Special Act on Air Quality Improvement, including port areas
