Title With DOT support, American shipyard launches world's first LNG-powered container ship
Date Posted 5/8/2015
Description The world's first Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) powered container ship was commissioned this week by TOTE Maritime, and financed in part by a $324.6 million Title XI Loan Guarantee from the Maritime Administration (MARAD). The new 764-foot Isla Bella includes a number of innovative technological advances. The key feature, of course, is that by burning LNG instead of diesel, it will significantly reduce harmful emissions.
