TOTE launched two liquified natural gas (LNG) powered container ships built in the United States by General Dynamics NASSCO.  The Perla del Caribe (pictured above) will enter service in the first quarter of 2016 and its sister ship, Isla Bella, began service in the fourth quarter of 2015.
The ships were specifically engineered for the US to Puerto Rico trade.  The use of LNG will reduce NOx emissions by 98%, SOx by 97%, CO2 by 72% and particulate matter by 60% over ships currently employed in that lane.
