Update on LNG Conversion Timeline

To our valued customers –

TOTE Maritime Alaska is adjusting the LNG conversion schedule and has elected to delay the upcoming Midnight Sun LNG conversion phase-1 dry-dock by 1 year. Midnight Sun was originally scheduled to undergo phase 1 of the LNG conversion from mid-December 2018 through early-February 2019.  TOTE Maritime Alaska will continue sailing both vessels throughout the year with the exception of routine holiday single-sailings.

The adjustment to the conversion schedule aligns the Orca’s LNG-readiness to the most recent timeline for Tacoma’s LNG-plant completion.

In place of this year’s dry dock period, our team will continue preparing Midnight Sun’s transition to LNG for items that don’t require a dry-dock.

TOTE Maritime Alaska is fully committed to convert the Orca class vessels to LNG, the most environmentally friendly maritime fuel available.

The new conversion schedule is as follows;

  • Midnight Sun Phase 1: 2019-2020
  • North Star Phase 2: 2020-2021
  • Midnight Sun Phase 2: 2021-2022

For further information please contact your account executive or customer service.

We greatly appreciate your support.
