Tote Maritime in LNG bunkering milestone

US shipping company Tote Maritime recently completed the 100th bunkering of LNG in the Port of Jacksonville, Florida.

North America’s first LNG bunkering barge Clean Jacksonville completed the milestone operation on June 3, according to Tote.

The 2,200-cbm barge has been bunkering LNG to Tote’s two Marlin Class containerships since 2018.

The ships Isla Bella and Perla Del Caribe are operating between Jacksonville and Puerto Rico’s San Juan.

The barge sources fuel from the first US coastal small-scale bunkering facility Jax LNG, a partnership comprising of Dominion and NorthStar Midstream.

The facility located near Dames Point, Jacksonville has the capacity to produce about 120,000 gallons of LNG per day.

There is room to add two liquefaction trains to the facility boosting LNG production capacity to 600,000 gallons per day.

Tote, a Saltchuk company, and Jax LNG expect to see a growing number of LNG-fuelled vessels in Jacksonville as the maritime industry is increasingly shifting to chilled fuel to reduce emissions and comply with the new IMO standards.
