TOTE Maritime Alaska, a shipping firm that provides twice-weekly and dedicated routes to Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, has completed the first of four conversion periods for its Orca class vessels enabling the ships to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel.
The company’s North Star was the latest to be fitted with two LNG tanks behind the ship’s bridge during a standard regulatory dry-dock session.
In addition to the LNG tanks and accompanying infrastructure, the ship received critical engine updates necessary to utilise LNG as a fuel.
Over the next four years, three more conversion periods will be required to finalise the transition of TOTE Maritime Alaska’s vessels to consume LNG as a fuel. The conversions are scheduled to be complete in the first quarter of 2021.
“We are excited to be the first shipping company in the United States to undertake this important environmental effort” noted Mike Noone, President of TOTE Maritime Alaska.
“And we are appreciative of our customers and partners who support our ongoing effort to innovate in ways that reflect our commitment to the environment and communities we serve.”
