Clean Energy boosts Boron LNG capacity with launch of third train

US LNG supplier Clean Energy Fuels has completed construction of a third production train at its LNG plant in Boron, California, boosting the plant’s capacity by 50 percent.

According to Clean Energy, the Boron plant, the largest plant of its kind in the Southwest US, now has the capacity to produce up to 270,000 gallons of LNG every day.

The addition of the third production train will allow the supply to meet the growing demand for bulk LNG by customers looking to decarbonize everything from city buses to large containerships, the firm said.

The facility also features one 1.8 million-gallon LNG storage tank.

Clean Energy’s customer, Pasha Hawaii, is now operating three LNG-powered containerships out of the Ports of Long Beach, Oakland, and Honolulu.

The volume of fuel that George II, George III, and Janet Marie use has grown from 526,486 gallons of LNG for the month of August 2022 when Pasha Hawaii’s first LNG-powered ship was commissioned, to 2,115,726 gallons in April 2024, Clean Energy said.

Besides the Boron LNG plant, Clean Energy also owns the plant in Willis, Texas.

This plant has capacity to produce 84,000 gallons of LNG per day and it features one million-gallon storage tank.
