Some State Ferries may be switching to liquefied natural gas

(SEATTLE)– Washington State Ferries is another step closer to significantly reducing fuel costs and transportation emissions by switching a class of vessels from diesel fuel to liquefied natural gas.  After more than three years of study, WSF has a plan to safely convert six Issaquah Class vessels to run on cleaner-burning liquefied natural gas.  The proposal was officially submitted to the U.S. Coast Guard on Nov. 18 in a formal letter of intent and waterways suitability assessment, which marks the official starting point of the Coast Guard’s review process.  WSF expects the Coast Guard to issue a finding regarding the LNG conversion proposal in 2014.
