Crowley Maritime Corp. has acquired 16 additional ISO tanks for its Carib Energy group that will be used to supply, transport and distribute LNG to customers in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Central America.
The 40 ft tanks each hold 10 700 gal. of LNG.
Crowley Vice President, Greg Buffington, said: “Adding ISO tanks to our equipment fleet for our established business not only allows us to meet heightened customer demand, but also [allows us] to continue delivering an uninterrupted supply of LNG to these regions […] And the improved offloading performance reduces the amount of time required to transfer the fuel from tank to the storage unit, adding to overall efficiency.”
In 2014, Crowley’s Carib Energy was granted a 20 year, small scale US Department of Energy (DOE) export license for the supply, transportation and distribution of LNG into Non-Free Trade Agreement (FTA) countries in the Caribbean, Central and South America. In the same year, Crowley also announced the signing of a multi-year contract with Coca-Cola Bottlers of Puerto Rico to supply containerised, US-sourced LNG to two of the manufacturer's plants in Cayey and Cidra, Puerto Rico. A major pharmaceutical company also contracted with Crowley for its LNG.
