Arctic Directory: Crowley completes tugs re-powering project

Crowley Maritime Corp. said June 16 it has reintroduced four re-powered Harbor Class tugs to its ship assist and tanker escort fleet in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The tugs Admiral, Leader, Scout and Master each underwent an extensive re-powering as part of an emissions and air quality initiative program by the Port of Los Angeles. The project, launched in late 2006, focuses on re-powering the vesselsí main engines and generators, and is part of a larger Port of Los Angeles emissions and air quality initiative, known as the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan. The plan requires all vessel operators in the area to upgrade their engines to be Tier II emissions compliant by 2013. Crowley partnered with Bay Ship and Yacht Co. to handle the re-power project, which has resulted in a 3.24 ton reduction in particulate matter emissions and a 109.52 ton reduction in mono-nitrogen oxides per year, for all tugs combined. A $4 million Port of Los Angeles Air Quality Mitigation Incentive grant largely funded the re-power project. For more information visit www.crowley.com.
