    City records show about 39 million gallons a year, about 45 percent of the plant’s production capacity, would fuel two Totem Ocean Trailer Express ships that run the regular Tacoma-Anchorage route and are being converted to LNG to cut pollution. The ships now run on marine bunker fuel, a diesel-based mix regarded as a heavy pollutant.

    Utility customers would use another 6 million gallons a year, drawn on six peak-demand days, said Jim Hogan, PSEs project manager for the plant. That LNG would be warmed in a hot-water vaporizer on the plant site, scented with commercial methane’s telltale odor for safety and piped out as gas for home and commercial use.

    The rest of the LNG, about 45 percent of the plant’s output, is projected to be sold to trucks and ships that convert from diesel and marine bunker fuel to run on LNG, Hogan said. All ships other than TOTE’s vessels would tank up with LNG from a fuel barge loaded at the dockside, Hogan said, similar to the process currently used to load marine bunker fuel.

    The LNG plant with its 8M gal tank is not big enough to fill an LNG tanker to export fuel.

      Jan 12 2017 Salish Orca, the first of three new LNG-fueled Salish Class vessels built for BC Ferries, arrived in British Columbia yesterday after a 50-day 10,440 nautical mile journey from Remontowa Shipbuilding s Gdansk, Poland, shipyard.

      Salish Orca is scheduled to start service on the B.C. Comox-Powell River route in the spring of 2017. Salish Eagle and Salish Raven are scheduled to arrive in early 2017 and are projected to be introduced into service on the B.C. Southern Gulf Islands routes by summer 2017, according to the company. The Salish Class Ferries (SCF), including Salish Orca, Salish Eagle and Salish Raven, are expected to replace the company s two older vessels, the Queen of Nanaimo and the Queen of Burnaby.

          Two LNG -fueled ships in Florida complete two ship-years of service. To date, they have used 15M gallons of LNG trucked to the Jacksonville port in ISO containers. A shore-side plant and fueling barge is planned to produce LNG at the port. Fuel presently comes from Macon GA.

          The article goes on to outline change of plans for the two LNG ferries which were to have been put into service between Washington State and Alaska.

              More LNG ferries begin arriving in British Columbia. Seaspan Ferries Corp. (SFC) has announced that the Seaspan Reliant – the second of two new dual-fuelled/hybrid (diesel, LNG and battery) ferries – has been successfully delivered. It is a drive on, drive off vehicle ferry with the capacity for 59 trailers. Seaspan Ferries Corporation currently operates a fleet of seven ferries out of five terminals in British Columbia, and supplies more than 50% of all cargo to Vancouver Island.

              Another first occurred this week at SFC, with assistance from VARD, FortisBC and Redwise, when the Seaspan Swift was successfully bunkered using a tanker truck to deliver LNG onboard the vessel. This type of bunkering operation was the first of its kind in North America.
