Tesla Semi electric trucks to power log-hauling program in Canada


Mosaic Forest Management, a timberlands management company based on Vancouver Island, explains the need to electrify logging operations: The BC forest sector has a significant role to play in addressing climate change. The working forest captures carbon as it grows, and wood products keep that carbon locked-up for decades. New trees are planted and the renewable cycle repeats. However, forestry operations generate tailpipe emissions, including from log trucks. Electrifying the fleet is a particularly good approach in British Columbia where over 90% of power in the Province is generated from clean hydroelectric sources. However, Mosaic also says that there’s currently no log truck that can handle the conditions in which they work on Vancouver Island. Now the company announces that they ordered “several Tesla Semi trucks” for an electric log hauling on the island: Mosaic Forest Management is announcing its partnership with local Vancouver Island service provider, EcoWest Driven, to introduce several Tesla semi-trucks into log hauling.
