In response to high customer demand in Puerto Rico, Crowley Fuels has acquired 40 additional ISO tanks for its Caribbean unit, to supply, transport and distribute US-sourced LNG to customers on the island.

The addition of these tanks brings Crowley’s total equipment fleet to 75 cryogenic ISO tank containers, giving the company the capacity to ship over 20 million gallons of LNG annually.

The new 40-foot tanks feature increased the offload rate, allowing for faster fuel transfers to customers.

The latest addition of LNG ISO containers to the Crowley fleet is aimed to enhance supply chain inventory security when coupled with the 520,000 gallons per day of liquefication ability and 98 million gallons of LNG storage capacity from Crowley’s partners in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Additional storage capacity in Puerto Rico is under development.

Crowley plans to further enhance its LNG supply chain when deploys its new LNG-powered combination container/roll-on roll-off (ConRo) ships, which will provide faster transit to Puerto Rico, reducing the turn time of ISO tanks to customers.

These ships will be fueled from a 528,000-gallon LNG storage facility at the Crowley-leased property at Jaxport’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal in Jacksonville.

Crowley has more than 32 megawatts of LNG supply contracts in Puerto Rico and has delivered to customers since 2014.

Crowley Fuels to-date has delivered over seven million gallons of LNG to industrial customers in Puerto Rico, including food and beverage manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and more. Additionally, in 2017, Crowley ensured its LNG supply chain was operational and providing deliveries to customers within three days of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico’s September hurricane that left most of the island without power.
