JAXPORT is the only U.S. East Coast port to offer on-dock and near-dock LNG fueling capabilities.
EMERGING LNG LEADER
JAXPORT tenants TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico and Crowley Maritime Corp. are leaders in the emergence of LNG as a preferred, environmentally-friendly fuel source for the maritime industry.
LNG-POWERED SHIPS AT JAXPORT
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. TOTE Maritime is launching North America’s first LNG bunker barge, Clean Jacksonville, which will be used for barge-to-ship LNG bunkering.
Crowley Maritime homeports two LNG-powered, combination container-roll-on/roll-off ships at JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal. The ships, El Coquí and Taíno, each have capacity for 2,400 TEU with additional space for approximately 400 vehicles.
LNG LIQUEFACTION FACILITIES
Eagle LNG operates a liquefaction plant in West Jacksonville able to produce 200,000 gallons a day and a holding facility at Talleyrand Marine Terminal. The plant and storage facility serves Crowley Maritime. Eagle is also building an LNG production and storage facility near the Blount Island Terminal.
JAX LNG operates 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 exports of LNG to Puerto Rico and has plans for expansion to a number of countries in the Caribbean and Latin America.
