Jacksonville Port Authority and its partners continue to lead the clean energy revolution – and the momentum continues to grow. Crowley and Watco recently announced a partnership to create a single-source terminal and supply chain management solution to support the emerging offshore wind industry.

“This partnership will provide turnkey services for the offshore wind industry in the area of terminal management,” said Lynda Patterson, Senior Vice President of Logistics for Watco, in a recent press release. “Crowley and Watco will work together to leverage our respective expertise in logistics, project management, and energy support to create innovative solutions to meet full lifecycle project needs.“

The two companies, who have operations in Northeast Florida, are pairing their unique skillsets to help wind power companies enter the U.S. with an innovative approach for their supply chain. Read more.

Offshore wind is not the only renewable energy source that is growing for the Jacksonville market – solar is also on the rise. As businesses and electric authorities look to grow their use of solar energy, Jacksonville’s transportation and logistics ecosystem is stepping up to help deliver the infrastructure needed, from warehousing space for safe storage and module deployment to the product’s final mile delivery.

Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) investments in Northeast Florida have anchored the region as a leader in clean energy. JAXPORT is the only U.S. East Coast port to offer on-dock and near-dock LNG fueling capabilities. JAXPORT tenants TOTE Maritime and Crowley Maritime both serve the Caribbean trade lane with LNG-powered vessels – the first of their kind.
