          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.

            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.

                  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.

                        Will Owen for LNG Industry,27 July 2018 - Eagle LNG Partners has announced the official grand opening of its Maxville LNG facility.

                        The plant which has been operating since early 2018 has a production capacity of 200 000 LNG gallons-per-day with a 1 million-gallon storage tank. Maxville is built to supply Eagle LNG Marine Fuel Depot – Talleyrand located on the Port of Jacksonville FL.

                        Eagle LNG will fuel Crowley Maritimes two new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships for US mainland to Puerto Rico trade from its Talleyrand marine fuel depot in addition to serving growing domestic and Caribbean needs for clean-burning, economical LNG. The Maxville plant currently loads LNG in ISO containers shipped to Puerto Rico for the pharmaceutical industry.

                        The marine fuel depot is the first of its kind world-wide said Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG. The LNG bunkering facility will help shipping companies to comply with the International Maritime Organisation rule which requires the reduction of marine fuel sulfur content by 1 January 2020:

                          Betsy Lillian for NGTNews July 23, 2018 - LNG-Powered Ship Ready to Journey Between Jacksonville and San Juan

                          Crowley Maritime Corp. has taken delivery of El Coqui, a combination container/roll on - roll off ship. El Coqui is the first of two Commitment Class, LNG-powered ships being built for Crowley shipping and logistics services between Jacksonville, Fla., and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Construction of sister ship Taino is under way at the VT Halter Marine shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., and she is scheduled to enter service later this year.

                          The new Crowley ships, built specifically for Puerto Rico trade, are 219.5 meters (720 feet) and 26,500 deadweight tons. They will be able to transport up to 2,400 20-foot-equivalent container units at a cruising speed of 22 knots.

                          According to Crowley, fueling the ships with LNG will reduce emissions significantly, including a 100 percent reduction in sulphur oxide and particulate matter; a 92 percent reduction in nitrogen oxide; and a reduction of carbon dioxide of more than 35 percent per container, compared with current fossil fuels.

                          This is a thrilling time for the U.S. shipbuilding industry, as evolutions in LNG technology are providing a historic opportunity for American yards and the supporting industrial base to design, build and outfit some of the most technically advanced and environmentally friendly vessels that are the envy of the world, says Matthew Paxton, president of the Shipbuilders Council of America:

                            David Rowlands for LNG Industry 17 August 2018

                            Wartsila Corp. has announced that a new ferry has been delivered to operate on the Saguenay River in Quebec.

                            The final commissioning of the MV Armand-Imbeau II took place at the Chantier Davie Canada shipyard in June 2018. It uses dual-fuel engines fueled with LNG which power an electric drive system. The ferry operates year round despite the ice conditions. Its advanced technologies are designed to overcome the operational cost and regulatory compliance challenges that operators face today. It is able to carry over 430 passengers and 110 cars, or 16 tractor units.

                            François Bertrand, interim CEO of STQ, said, “Societe des traversiers du Quebec was the first ferry operator in Canada to welcome a LNG-fuelled ferry in 2015, and following this current delivery, we still have a third LNG ferry on order.

                            Jared Newcombe, Chief Executive Officer, Chantier Davie Canada Inc., said: “This delivery marks a shipbuilding milestone as it is the first LNG-fuelled ferry ever built in North America. The first LNG-fuelled ferry was constructed in Italy, and ultimately delivered in 2015.
