    Registration open for HHP 2017 to take place Nov 6-9 2017 in Jacksonville FL. Gladstone, Meandrous & Associates is the organizer of this convention featuring natural gas fuel for High Horsepower Applications which will take place at the Prime Osborn Convention Center.

    Jacksonville is where Pivotal LNG (presenting sponsor of HHP Summit 2017) is fast establishing an infrastructure in support of two LNG-fueled ships operated by Tote Maritime and already connecting Florida and Puerto Rico:

          Aug 15, 2017 by Rich Piellisch in NGTNews - In the months leading up to HHP Summit, Jacksonville FL will become home to more LNG-fueled ocean-going vessels, locomotives and over-the-road trucks than any place in the world, as well as the launching point for the export of natural gas to remote power generation and industrial markets in the Caribbean and beyond.
          To support these operations, three new LNG production plants are under construction, including a state-of-the-art facility from six-time HHP Summit presenting sponsor, Pivotal LNG.

            Linked below is a dramatic summary of LNG being put into BC Ferries and Seaspan ships:

            The driving force in shipping is the North American Emissions Control Area (marine). TOTE’s entire trip between Tacoma and Alaska falls within this jurisdiction. These are dual-fuel ships - mixing natural gas with diesel - so ships will still burn diesel as well.

              March 12, 2018 Victoria, BC - Victoria Shipyards (VSL) was selected by TOTE Maritime Alaska for the conversion of their two Orca class vessels to dual-fuel systems.

              The North Star, the first of the two 839-foot-long roll-on, roll-off cargo ships which carry cargo between Anchorage AK, and Tacoma WA, arrived at VSL in December, 2017 kicking off the process of converting the diesel engines to dual-fuel systems.

              The first of the two vessels slated for conversion – the North Star, has now completed a 60-day visit to the shipyard, which along with Midnight Sun will provide employment for 300 to 400 people working six days a week. Following her recent stay, she returned to Alaska, marking the first voyage outfitted with two new LNG tanks.

              Seaspan Shipyards is proud to have conducted this work for TOTE Maritime Alaska as part of its efforts to convert its fleet to LNG-fuelled vessels, noted Brian Carter, President & CEO of Seaspan Shipyards. With the completion of this first phase of work, our workforce has demonstrated that it is fully capable of handling these complex conversions and we look forward to future work on similar projects. Each of these conversion periods will take place in the winter to minimize the impact to customers and consumers alike. The conversion of both ships is scheduled to be complete in Q1 of 2021.

              Phase one of the first major LNG conversion in North America on a full-sized vessel has now been successfully completed, said Joe O Rourke, Vice President & General Manager of VSL. We plan to continue to build our reputation as an industry expert for all LNG related work on the West Coast.

                Shell LNG North Sea-Baltic Region bunker vessel transfers fuel at 1000 cubic meters per hour matching current ship fueling rates:

                1000 LNG bunkering operations since 2007 with Seagas. Viking Line states that LNG is definitely our fuel of choice:

                  Seems Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash., has directed Washington State Ferries to study converting its ships to hybrid - even charging the ship s batteries in port - when the Port of Tacoma was all set to supply LNG for the marine highway operations. (Previous post in this thread shows that British Columbia Canada already provides LNG conversions and fueling for ships in the Northwest.)

                    MAN Diesel & Turbo offers dual-fuel engines that are geared towards operating on boil-off gas derived from a carrier s LNG payload. Their diesel-electric engine solutions offer a high degree of redundancy.

                    LNG carriers are among the largest commercial vessels today. Vessels such as the Russian Veliky Novorgod are almost 300m long and more than 45m wide. Velikiy Novgorod is a LNG carrier with membrane cargo tanks and a cargo capacity of 170,200 cubic meters. It is equipped with a diesel-electric drive, which can be fueled by LNG, fuel oil or gasoil.

                    The Veliky Novorgod is certified as an Ice2 class vessel and can ship cargoes in low-temperature conditions, including via the Northern Sea Route during open navigation. According to the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping, Ice2 class includes ice-going vessels capable of non-escorted transit in the ice cake and brash ice of Nearctic seas or in solid ice escorted by an icebreaker, with ice thickness reaching up to 0.55 meters.

                    The Veliky Novorgod was commissioned at STX O&S shipyard in the city of Jinhae, South Korea, on 20 January 2014 and was the fifth in Gasprom s LNG fleet. Gazprom supplies LNG to Japan, Korea, China, India, Taiwan, the UK, the USA, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.

                      Betsy Lillian for NGTNews June 6, 2018 - The Spirit of British Columbia, one of BC Ferries two largest vessels, has returned to service on the Metro Vancouver (Tsawwassen) – Victoria (Swartz Bay) route following the completion of a mid-life upgrade, which included a conversion to LNG. The Spirit of Vancouver Island will undergo its upgrade and conversion from fall 2018 to spring 2019. The Spirit Class vessels measure 167 meters in length. Each vessel can carry approximately 358 vehicles across two car decks and up to 2,100 passengers and crew with a service speed of 19.5 knots.

                      The Spirit of British Columbia is the first passenger vessel in the world to refuel LNG via delivery on a fully enclosed vehicle deck. Three Salish Class vessels, introduced last year, were the first passenger vessels in the world to fuel LNG on an open vehicle deck via delivery truck, according to Mark Collins, BC Ferries president and CEO. Both of these innovations were conceived by BC Ferries and were designed, engineered and built by BC Ferries and its partners. The LNG is provided by FortisBC.
