Port of Los Angeles
Innovative energy solution for high-powered cranes
Pier 300 is a container terminal within the Port of Los Angeles in California. Due to a lack of voltage support, the terminal had been unable to fully deploy their existing new high-powered cranes and could only operate them at a percentage of their design capacity, performance speeds, and acceleration rates.
