Crowley Launches LNG Powered Ship

Transportation & Logistics Industry News & Updates

Climbing up gangway made of aluminum stairs and setting foot on the red, iron deck of the West Virginia, it’s easy to see the excitement of the Crowley Maritime crew.

Engineers and pump men, crew and officers all take turns giving guests tours of the brand new tanker ship, christened last week, which can be fueled by liquid natural gas or by bunker fuel.

“We believe there is a large supply of natural gas in the United States and that it’s the cleanest burning fuel,” said CEO Tom Crowley.

The $140 million and 600-foot ship, built at the Philadelphia Shipyards over 18 months, will service Marathon Petroleum to supply refined petroleum from the Gulf Coast to throughout Florida, specifically Tampa and Port Everglades, with some stops to Jacksonville.

The ship runs on multiple types of fuel, but will be able to be converted to LNG fuel in the future, when the market makes it feasible, said a spokesperson for Crowley.

Meanwhile, Crowley’s LNG station in Jacksonville, built by Eagle LNG, will be completed and ready to operate early next year. The company also has two LNG-powered container ships due to arrive in 2017. Eventually, as LNG becomes more prevalent, the West Virginia will have investments to allow it to carry LNG as well as be powered by it.

“Jacksonville is at the leading edge of utilizing natural gas shipping fuel,” Crowley said. “There are few places in the world where investments are being made like here. Jacksonville is a leader and is building upon it.”

Other projects that Crowley is working on are going smoothly. The fueling facility built by Eagle LNG in Maxville is underway, and is expecting to be operational early next year. The transition to Jacksonville port property is made easier by Crowley’s long term relationship with the Jacksonville Port Authority, and the shipping company will move from its private terminal to one on Jaxport land next year.

“The year 2017 is going to be huge for us,” Crowley said.
