After debuting the world's first hybrid tugboat in 2009, the Port of Long Beach is partnering again with Foss Maritime Company to best prices viagra retrofit an existing tugboat with hybrid technology.

The ship called the Campbell Foss is a conventional dolphin tugboat assisting ships in the San Pedro Bay. It will be fitted with motor generators, batteries and control systems by Foss at one of their shipyards.  The retrofit should cut 1,340 tons of CO2 emissions and save 100,000 gallons of fuel per year.  Foss and the Port plan to introduce more hybrid tugs over the coming years and see more retrofits in the future.

The Port of Long Beach received a $1 million grant from the California Air Resources Board for the retrofit project.

Looks like a three-year payback... not bad!

Welcoming initiative by the Port of Long Beach. Here I would like to add, that government should subsidize such projects and encourage the use of hybrid technology and other renewable energy sources like solar, wind, etc. for tugboats and other marine vehicles. This will surely help reducing the carbon emissions, avoiding further damage to the ozone layer caused by CO2.

I think it is high time we started taking nature and viagra 50mgs our planet earth seriously and do our bit about environment, sustainability, climate change, biodiversity, clean energy, green living and so on. One great place to start would be Elpis is an online community focused on responsible living and sustainable growth. You can measure, reduce and offset your carbon footprint; set up petitions, volunteering and fundraising projects for your favourite causes; help create action plans for sustainable communities; buy a range of eco friendly products and services; and network with other people who share a common interest in a low carbon, responsible lifestyle.
