Eagle LNG’s Talleyrand LNG bunkering facility located in the Port of Jacksonville (JAXPORT) has achieved an important milestone while fuelling Crowley’s newest ConRo ship, Taino.
The East Coast terminal is a newly designed, first-of-its-kind, shore-to-ship, LNG bunkering facility, from which Eagle LNG now routinely bunkers LNG onto Crowley’s LNG powered ConRo ships, El Coquí and Taino, for US mainland to Puerto Rico container and vehicle trade and shipping.
“Today marks another key accomplishment for our company with our Talleyrand terminal providing LNG bunkering to refuel Crowley’s newest ConRo, LNG-powered ship, Taino. The Taino joins Crowley’s other LNG powered ship, El Coquí, in weekly scheduled LNG fuelling,” said Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG. “The Talleyrand marine bunkering terminal in JAXPORT is capable of providing LNG fuel for the maritime industry while its small two-acre design can be easily replicated in other coastal ports,” said Lalani. “We are proud of our partnerships with Crowley, the Jacksonville community and JAXPORT without whom this cutting-edge bunkering technology could not have come to fruition,” added Lalani.
