SEA\LNG has announced that Eagle LNG Partners has been welcomed as the first new industry partner into the coalition.
The founding partners of the recently-formed cross-industry coalition include: Carnival Corp. & plc; DNV GL; Engie; ENN; GE; Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT); Lloyd’s Register (LR); Mitsubishi Corp.; NYK Line; Port of Rotterdam; Qatargas; Shell; TOTE Inc.; and Wärtsilä.
SEA\LNG was created to accelerate the widespread use of LNG as a marine fuel. As such, it is aiming to address and overcome a number of challenges, including the creation of infrastructure to make quick, safe and cost-effective LNG bunkering possible in key ports, as well as establishing consistent international and national regulations globally to increase investment in the sector. Peter Keller, SEA\LNG Chairman, and Executive Vice President of TOTE Inc., said: “We’re pleased to welcome Eagle LNG as our first new partner since SEA\LNG launched in July. Eagle LNG brings a wealth of expertise and specialist knowledge that will be instrumental in our pursuit to accelerate the widespread adoption of LNG as a marine fuel. The coalition aims to work together across the LNG value chain to address commercial barriers, promote and support the development of LNG as a key fuel for maritime transport, and significantly reduce the industry’s environmental impact.”
Sean Lalani, the President of Eagle LNG, added: “Eagle LNG is pleased to join SEA\LNG and drive the widespread adoption of LNG as a marine fuel forward with like-minded partners. We are already meeting the maritime industry’s growing need for ‘LNG as a marine fuel’ with advanced environmental designs capable of operating within a small footprint. We look forward to working with the SEA\LNG partners and firmly believe that LNG is the future of sustainability, enabling us to transform the way we think about our energy needs and the way those needs impact our world.”
