Crowley Maritime Corporation Thursday completed the inaugural liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation for its new Commitment Class, combination container/roll-on roll-off “ConRo” ship El Coqui.
A total of 41 LNG trailers operated by Crowley partners Eagle LNG and Clean Energy loaded around 410,000 gallons of LNG fuel onto the newbuilding at the VT Halter Marine, the Pascagoula, Miss., shipyard in early April.
“Each trailer load took around an hour to empty into El Coqui, and the entire transfer took several days to complete,” said Crowley.
“Now that the fuel has been delivered, the ship’s cryogenic, vacuum-insulated system will keep the LNG in a frigid state, around -260 degrees F, until it is ready for use.”
Going forward, Eagle LNG Partners’ new liquefaction facility, located near Jacksonville, will exclusively support the ships’ fuel needs.
Eagle LNG and Crowley’s LNG engineering team have constructed a dockside LNG fuel depot at the company's leased property at the JAXPORT Talleyrand Marine Terminal to provide faster LNG bunkering operations.
The location was also engineered to feature a compact footprint specifically for ship bunkering operations.
Crowley’s Commitment Class ConRo vessels will be deployed for the U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico trade.
