Pivotal LNG has announced that it has reached a multi-year agreement to sell LNG to a subsidiary of Crowley Maritime Corp., Carib Energy LLC. Crowley will deliver the LNG from the US mainland to Molinos de Puerto Rico, which is a subsidiary of the food ingredients company, Ardent Mills LLC.
Greg Buffington, Crowley Vice President, said: “Crowley’s partnership with Pivotal LNG continues to help our customers meet their energy needs with cleaner, efficient fuel sources.
“With Pivotal and Crowley’s logistics team working together, Molinos will be able to expand environmental sustainability efforts and better manage weather-related power challenges that can affect Puerto Rico.”
Pivotal will load the LNG onto ISO containers authorised by the US Department of Transport to carry approximately 10 000 gal. of LNG. The road transport of the 40 ft ISO containers to Crowley’s shipping terminal in Jacksonville, Florida, will be coordinated by Crowley’s domestic logistics team. Following this, the containers will loaded onto the company’s vessels, which will then transport them to Puerto-Rico. Crowley’s Puerto Rico-based logistics team will then handle the final delivery to Molinos, which will regasify the fuel for power.
Tim Delay, the Vice President of Pivotal LNG, said: “We are proud to be working with Crowley and Molinos. This project provides an environmentally friendly fuel to Molinos that will help reduce emissions in Puerto Rico and its dependency on other petroleum products.
“LNG is a clean, domestically produced, alternative fuel that can be used in multiple ways. This additional long-term sale of LNG to Crowley showcases the value of LNG as an alternative energy source.”
