Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. (BHGI) was awarded a task order for an Alternative Fuel (LNG/CNG) Initiative through its Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Marine Design Center (MDC).

BHGI will analyze a subset of the USACE fleet regarding its suitability for conversion to Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) and/or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) power. As part of that effort, sources of LNG or CNG will be investigated so that fuel availability can be considered in a down select process. BHGI was awarded this task order in September 2013 and it is expected to be completed by June 2014.

Once the analysis stage is complete, USACE will down select to a single vessel for further investigation. BHGI will then design the modification, and USACE will decide whether or not to move forward with physical modifications.
