Containers for TOTE's LNG-powered vessels delivered

Stevedores at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal unloaded the first shipment of the 53-foot Wide-Top Pick cargo containers for use on TOTE’s new Marlin Class ships, the world’s first LNG-powered container ships.

The containers arrived at Blount Island from Qingdao, China aboard the Saga Navigator and were offloaded by Portus, JAXPORT informed in a statement.

TOTE’s first LNG ship, the Isla Bella, was launched from General Dynamics NASSCO’s shipyard in San Diego in April and will arrive at JAXPORT in the fall. The second ship is currently under construction in San Diego and will arrive at JAXPORT in early 2016.

Both ships will be home ported at JAXPORT and will serve the Puerto Rico trade lane.
