Port of New Orleans and Cleancor Energy Solutions, a unit of Seacor Holdings, are joining forces to provide LNG bunkering services in the US port.
In that regard, the duo signed a memorandum of understanding on Tuesday to “collaborate on ways to LNG fueling solutions to ship owners and operators within Port NOLA’s jurisdiction,” according to a joint statement.
Under the memorandum, Cleancor will work with the port to help provide LNG to its customers and marine operators in the port’s jurisdiction.
On the other side, Port NOLA will provide Cleancor with data, logistics expertise, customer contacts, as well as introductions and marketing support.
Also, Cleancor plans to develop options for infrastructure development that integrate into the port’s long-range planning.
The US small-scale firm said it would also collaborate with Port NOLA to obtain authorizations and permits needed to develop the required infrastructure and operations.
The duo would “identify, attract and serve customers in Port NOLA’s jurisdiction that use LNG fuel, jointly solicit sources of grant funding to help incentivize early adopters and collaborate to share information on infrastructure necessary to support LNG bunkering.”
