Project Title & Description
STIMULUS - Naional . Diesel - Northern New England Ferry Repower
This assistance agreement provides funding to the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. This project will repower eight marine vessels in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, including ferries and tug boats, that currently have Tier 0 engines, with Tier 2-certified engines. This will reduce annual emissions of nitrogen oxides by 32.8 tons, particulate matter by 2.3 tons, and carbon dioxide by 103 tons. In addition, the manufacture and installation of the equipment, along with the management of the program, will create/preserve an estimated 5.3 jobs.
