$84 Million for Tacoma-Anchorage Ships Under a USCG Waiver,
TOTE Says It Will Convert Some and Replace Other MAN Engines

Proclaiming the go-ahead for an historic, $84 million project, Totem Ocean Trailer Express has secured the U.S. Coast Guard waiver it needs to convert its two 839-foot, MAN-powered Orca-class vessels to mostly LNG operation, while they remain in service. The work sets key precedents, TOTE says, for liquefied natural gas for ocean-going vessels and for the infrastructure to fuel them – which will be available for other emerging LNG users.
