Crowley and Shell pen decarbonization pact

Florida-based Crowley and a unit of LNG giant Shell are joining forces to work on decarbonizing the maritime industry in the US.

In that regard, Crowley and Shell Trading (US) have entered into a memorandum of understanding with the aim of supporting alternative energy solutions for the future of shoreside and terminal operations, according to a joint statement issued on Tuesday.

The memorandum follows an ongoing joint project revealed by the two firms last year regarding the construction and charter of what they say would be the nation’s largest LNG bunkering barge on the US East Coast.

Under the new deal, Shell and Crowley are “continuing to look more broadly at how they can jointly develop sustainable solutions across the US maritime sector,” the statement said.

This includes lower-emissions vessels and technology at ports across the West, Gulf and East Coast regions and electrification and net-zero solutions at terminals.

Subject to future agreements, Shell would look to support Crowley’s development of lower-emissions solutions for a shoreside charging station at the Port of San Diego, where Crowley’s eWolf, the first all-electric US ship assist tug, would begin service in 2023.
