TOTE, a leader in environmental responsibility, announced in 2012 plans to convert its Maritime fleet to operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG). TOTE Maritime Alaska, already operating the newest ships in the U.S. domestic fleet, was the first in the nation to announce plans to convert its engines to operate on natural gas. TOTE Shipholdings followed later in the year, announcing the company had signed a contract with NASSCO to build the first and largest LNG–powered container vessels in the world to serve TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico.
By converting its fleet to natural gas, the company will create access to reliable sources of LNG to Pacific Northwest ports and will help lead to the proliferation of natural gas as a transportation fuel.
