Efficiency has increased fivefold over traditional terminals, slashing the time for cargo loading and unloading by up to 26.2 percent and increasing the anchoring time for ocean vessels by 28 percent, said Yang Rong, general manager of Tianjin Port No 2 Container Terminal Co.

Tianjin Port has seen wind power and photovoltaic installations reach up to 280,000 kilowatt hours, generating green power up to 60 million kWh, enough to save 18,000 tons of coal and slashing up to 50,000 tons of carbon dioxide.

Last year, the port's overall container throughput hit 21 million twenty-foot equivalent units. The facility's growth rate hit a four-year high, placincg it among the top 10 ports in the world.

The ongoing campaign by the port honors its commitment to carbon reduction and neutrality, said Chu Bin, Party chief of Tianjin Port Group.
