Watch: Jaxport Partners Leading the LNG Revolution

Sharelines

  • TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico and Crowley Maritime Corp. are leaders in the use of LNG as a maritime fuel.
  • Eagle LNG is building a liquefaction plant in West Jacksonville.
  • Carib Energy has plans for exporting LNG to the Caribbean and Latin America.

The Port of Jacksonville and its partners are playing a leading role in the advancement of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a maritime fuel.

Jaxport tenants TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico and Crowley Maritime Corp. are leaders in the emergence of LNG as an environmentally-friendly fuel source for the maritime industry. TOTE Maritime operates two 3,100 TEU LNG-powered containerships out of JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal. Isla Bella and Perla Del Caribe are the world’s first LNG-powered containerships.

Crowley Maritime will soon homeport two LNG-powered, combination container-roll-on/roll-off at JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal. The ships, El Coquí and Taíno, will each have capacity for 2,400 TEU with additional space for nearly 400 vehicles.

Eagle LNG is building a liquefaction plant in West Jacksonville, with a production capacity of 200,000 gallons per day, to Crowley Maritime. Eagle is also building an LNG production and storage facility near the Blount Island Terminal and a holding facility at Talleyrand Marine Terminal.

JAX LNG is building a liquefaction and storage facility at Dames Point to fuel TOTE Maritime’s ships, with capacity to produce in excess of 120,000 gallons of LNG per day.

Crowley-owned Carib Energy has already begun small-scale shipments of LNG to Puerto Rico and has plans for exporting to a number of countries in the Caribbean and Latin America.
