US: Repurposed Shipping Containers Charge Electric Buses in Anaheim

The Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) has doubled its electric vehicle charging capacity using two recycled shipping containers provided by BP Pulse.

This temporary measure will allow for the continued reliability of ATN’s growing electric fleet while a permanent charging facility is constructed.

ATN provides clean-fuel transit service to 10 million passengers annually
ATN’s Executive Director, Diana Kotler said:

“This new charging station allows ATN to put our growing zero-emission fleet onto the street immediately. The location allows us to charge our buses along our routes, instead of requiring all buses to be charged at our headquarters, saving time and guaranteeing the efficiency of our transit system. With the addition of this charging capability, we are well prepared to continue to grow our electric fleet, with a goal of being 100% electric by 2026.”

The container-based charging system has been charging ATN’s 60 and 40-foot electric buses in Anaheim, California since the first week of 2023.

This system will remain in place until a new ATN electric bus charging and maintenance facility opens in central Orange County in autumn 2023.

The operator will also continue to charge electric vehicles at its current headquarters.

Kotler added:

“The container-based technology will enable ATN to seamlessly meet the charging needs of our electric bus fleet while our new clean-air transit hub in Anaheim is under construction. We are pleased to continue to provide clean-fuel transit options for the residents, visitors and employees in our region.”
