The U.S. DoT’s Maritime Administration is looking for partners to help reduce pollution from ports and marine vessels “through repowering, re-engining or installation of other pollution reduction technologies, or the use of alternative fuel/energy.”
“MARAD is seeking to provide cost-share funding through cooperative agreements for U.S.-flagged vessels that operate on inland or coastal waterways,” states a summary for funding opportunity number DTMA-91-R-2012-0019.
“Projects that will be funded under the RFP include engine repowers, retrofits, the use of alternative fuels, or the use of alternative technologies such as hybrid engines and other emissions reduction technologies.”
The agency has $1.5 million available, expects to make three awards, and will not fund more than 75% of the total cost of a given project.
The deadline for proposals is July 9.
