Cluster Setup
Driving the progress with test fields, simulations and working groups 

The cluster’s acti­vi­ties are divi­ded into three main ele­ments: First­ly, it orga­ni­zes the prac­ti­cal test­ing of hea­vy-duty equip­ment with various envi­ron­men­tal­ly fri­end­ly dri­ve sys­tems on desi­gna­ted test fields. Second­ly, in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with sci­en­ti­fic part­ners, the clus­ter rese­ar­ches stra­te­gies for expan­ding the use of such equip­ment and deve­lo­ps simu­la­ti­ons tail­o­red to this. Final­ly, the working groups come tog­e­ther to dis­cuss the input para­me­ters for the­se simu­la­ti­ons and ana­ly­ze the resul­ting outcomes.

Test fields

Container Terminal Tollerort CTT

Ener­gy Car­ri­er: Hydro­gen
Equip­ment: Ter­mi­nal Trac­tor, Emp­ty Con­tai­ner Hand­ler, Stradd­le Car­ri­er, Forklift

Container Terminal Altenwerder CTA

Ener­gy Car­ri­er: Elec­tri­ci­ty
Equip­ment: Ter­mi­nal Trac­tor, AGV


In col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Ham­burg (TUHH), we are mode­ling and simu­la­ting logi­stics are­as in which hea­vy goods trans­port ope­ra­ti­ons take place. Our aim is to iden­ti­fy ways to decar­bo­ni­ze trans­port. This includes asses­sing ener­gy requi­re­ments and deve­lo­ping stra­te­gies for the use of hydro­gen and elec­tri­ci­ty. We also inte­gra­te real data from our test fields into the­se models, crea­ting a solid decis­i­on-making frame­work for com­pa­nies con­side­ring the use of such tech­no­lo­gies in their dai­ly operations.
