Long Beach to Decide on Toyota Power Plan

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners is expected to decide on Toyota Logistics Services’ proposal to redesign its facility at Pier B and build a renewable 2.3-megawatt fuel-cell power plant and hydrogen fueling station with dedicated pumps for hydrogen.

Toyota – which operates a terminal for receiving, handling and transporting its vehicles off-site by truck or rail – wants to make operations more efficient by consolidating office, car washing, fueling, auto body and other spaces into one location.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on August 13 at the Port's Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive in Long Beach. It can also be viewed live and recorded at www.polb.com/webcast.
