Green project completed at Delaware fruit distributor

    State officials are touting the completion of an environmental project involving a service provider for customers of the Port of Wilmington.

    Gov. Jack Markell and state environmental secretary Collin O’Mara were to join other officials Friday at Trinity Port Services in New Castle to discuss the project.
    Trinity distributes more than 100 million pounds of bananas annually for Dole and Chiquita, storing the bananas in refrigerated containers at its Rogers Road site before shipping them to wholesalers throughout the country.

    The project involved replacing diesel generators used by Trinity with a cleaner alternative that officials say will significantly reduce air pollutants, diesel fumes and noise to the nearby community.
