Crowley Maritime Corporation’s LNG unit completed the first truck loading operation at the new Eagle LNG Partners’ Maxville liquefaction plant near Jacksonville, Florida. 

Crowley loaded nearly 11,000 gallons of the chilled fuel into an ISO container and delivered it via a truck to the Port of Jacksonville for ocean transport to Puerto Rico.

Speaking of the first loading, Crowley’s vice president, LNG, Matt Jackson said the company has enhanced its flexibility in services and sourcing locations with the first LNG tank loading at the Maxville plant.

The facility is the first LNG plant to be operational in Jacksonville, according to Sean Lalani, president of Eagle LNG Partners.

It has the capacity to produce up to 200,000 gallons per day of LNG and a 1-million-gallon storage tank and a system to load fuel into ISO containers for truck delivery to the port.

After receiving the LNG, the ISO containers are transported by truck and loaded onto vessels in Jacksonville. Crowley then provides ocean transportation and delivers the LNG to various customers in Puerto Rico and other locations in the Caribbean.

LNG from Eagle LNG’s new plant also will power Crowley’s two new Commitment Class, combination container/roll-on roll-off (ConRo) ships for the U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico trade, the LNG-fueled El Coquí and Taíno.

To support fueling the ships, Eagle LNG Partners and Crowley have constructed a dockside LNG fuel depot at the Jaxport Talleyrand marine terminal on the St. Johns River.
