American shipping company TOTE Maritime on Wednesday (3 June) celebrated the 100th bunkering of liquified natural gas (LNG) on subsidiary TOTE Maritime’s LNG powered Marlin Class containerships.
The company said it has invested USD 500 million over the past five years to provide dedicated and reliable LNG bunkering services at Puerto Rico.
The LNG bunkering operation was conducted by the LNG bunker barge Clean Jacksonville; it was the first to be built in North America and entered service for TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico in the Port of Jacksonville, FL.
The 3,100 TEU capacity sister containerships are Isla Bella and Perla del Caribe and they serve the route between Jacksonville, Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
