TOTE Maritime Alaska is adjusting the LNG conversion schedule and has elected to delay the upcoming Midnight Sun LNG conversion phase-1 dry-dock by 1 year. Midnight Sun was originally scheduled to undergo phase 1 of the LNG conversion from mid-December 2018 through early-February 2019. TOTE Maritime Alaska will continue sailing both vessels throughout the year with the exception of routine holiday single-sailings.
The adjustment to the conversion schedule aligns the Orca’s LNG-readiness to the most recent timeline for Tacoma’s LNG-plant completion.
In place of this year’s dry dock period, our team will continue preparing Midnight Sun’s transition to LNG for items that don’t require a dry-dock.

TOTE Maritime Alaska is fully committed to convert the Orca class vessels to LNG, the most environmentally friendly maritime fuel available.
The new conversion schedule is as follows:
- Midnight Sun Phase 1: 2019 – 2020.
- North Star Phase 2: 2020 – 2021.
- Midnight Sun Phase 2: 2021 – 2022.
