Eagle LNG Partners has opened its Maxville LNG facility with a production capacity of 200,000 gallons per day with a one-million-gallon storage tank.
The plant has been operating since early 2018 and is built to supply Eagle LNG’s marine fuel depot located on the Port of Jacksonville’s Talleyrand marine terminal.
Eagle LNG will fuel Crowley Maritime’s two new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships for US mainland to Puerto Rico trade from its Talleyrand marine fuel depot in addition to serving growing domestic and Caribbean needs for clean-burning, economical LNG.
Eagle LNG’s marine fuel depot is a shore-side facility offering 500,000 gallons of LNG bunkering capability, while occupying a small two-acre footprint, allowing buinkering at Crowley’s berth where their ships are homeported.
The fuel depot it the first of its kind globally. As a permanent marine infrastructure, it delivers a long-term LNG bunkering solution at the Port of Jacksonville for both domestic and international marine trade routes.
The LNG facility and LNG marine fuel depot each contributes to the LNG infrastructure needed for shipping companies to comply with the IMO’s rule requiring the reduction of marine fuel sulphur content by January 1, 2020.
