Foss' Retrofitted Hybrid Tug to be on Display Tuesday, September 20 at Company's Rainier, Ore., Shipyard. 
   
Hybrid technology already proving itself, says port environmental planner  
 
 
Who: Foss' second hybrid tug, the retrofitted Campbell Foss, will be open to the media for the first time.


What:     The Campbell Foss is sister to the Carolyn Dorothy, which has been bringing cleaner air and fuel efficiency to southern California ports since its 2010 arrival in Los Angeles and Long Beach.

When:     10 a.m. to 2 p.m. / Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Where:    Foss Maritime's Rainier, Ore., shipyard / 611 E. "A" Street / Rainier, Ore., 97048

Why:       Foss Maritime Company is nearing completion of its second hybrid-this time a retrofitted tug called the Campbell Foss-in partnership with the southern California ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. "Hybrid technology is already proving itself," says Richard Cameron, head of environmental planning for the Port of Long Beach, "and we're anxious to see improvements in this second generation vessel." The Foss/Los Angeles-Long Beach partnership's goal is to achieve significant reductions in pollution emissions and fuel efficiency while preserving operational capabilities.
 
Gary Faber, Foss' president and COO, says, "At Foss, we have a 'zero trace' corporate goal. Our hybrid technology is an important part of that strategy. Think of all the world's ports - and all the harbor tugs working in them. What an opportunity we have to bring cleaner air and greater fuel efficiency."
