TOTE 2, the second in the world containeship to be powered by LNG will be launched on August 29 at the General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard, as announced by the shipbuilder on Tuesday.
TOTE 2 is the second Marlin-class vessel of TOTE. The first one, Isla Bella, was launched on April 18.
Compared to TOTE’s vessels currently operating in Puerto Rico, the Marlin-class vessels will reduce the emissions of sulfur dioxide (Sox) by 98%, carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (Nox) by 71%, and particulate matter (PM) by 99%. According to NASSCO, this equals to removing over 15,700 cars from the road.
