Crowley Maritime and Eagle LNG Partners began construction of the LNG facility at Jaxport’s Talleyrand marine terminal in Jacksonville.

The LNG bunker fueling facility will serve Crowley’s new Commitment class, LNG-powered, combination container/Roll-on Roll-off (ConRo) ships, which are under construction at the VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for use in the U.S. mainland-Puerto Rico trade.

Speaking of the facility’s construction, Crowley’s Matt Jackson, vice president LNG, said that within a month Chart Industries is expected to deliver two of its  1-million liter cryogenic tanks for LNG storage at the site.

Weighing 260 tons, each cryogenic storage tank holds enough LNG to cover an average family’s electricity demand for 1,000 years. The tanks are en route to Jacksonville from Europe.

Crowley’s ConRo ships, named El Coquí and Taíno, will begin service in the second half of 2017 and first half of 2018.

The LNG-fueled ships are designed to travel at speeds up to 22 knots and carry containers ranging in size from 20-foot standard to 53-foot-long, 102-inch-wide, high-capacity units.
