Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway completed the conversion of its entire mainline thru-haul fleet to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). 

The company operating in the U.S. state of Florida has been operating on LNG since late 2015 and has so far completed over 2,300 trips on liquefied natural gas.

According to the company’s CEO Fran Chinnici, FEC is the first North American Railroad to operate its entire mainline fleet on LNG.

Working under the authority provided by Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) the railway is currently moving LNG containers between New Fortress Energy’s liquefaction plant in Hialeah and PortMiami and Port Everglades.

With the completion of the fleet conversion, FEC held a demonstration of its facilities, presenting two LNG-fueled locomotives with tender car between, fueling station, ISO container, LNG tanker delivery trailer as well as an LNG-fueled truck.

FEC’s regional trucking business, Raven Transport utilizes LNG as fuel and has already converted 44 percent of its fleet to run on LNG as fuel.
