Current EPA exhaust emission standards for marine diesel engines are driving natural gas-powered adoption. LNG can be easily used for marine satellite storage, filling stations and onboard fueling systems. Below deck or above deck tanks, vaporizers, cold boxes and pipelines can be utilized. Making the transition to LNG has already proven successful in Europe, and it is being adopted globally with Tote and Carnival Cruise ships among the early adopters in the United States. Kinetrex has the tools and experience to help transition your fleet to LNG.
24,000 locomotives consume approximately 4 billion gallons of diesel per year. Over 20 years ago, Chart pioneered LNG solutions to provide natural gas to fuel long-haul locomotives and yard switch engines. Alaska Rail hauled its first LNG cargo in September 2016 and major rail companies are reinitiating field trials. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is in the process of approving transport of LNG and LNG tender car regulations.
