April 3 - The Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport) has seen the arrival and installation of two 260-tonne cryogenic liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks onto their foundations at Crowley Maritime Corporation's new shoreside fuelling facility on Tall

The tanks arrived onboard BBC Chartering's heavy lift ship, Moonstone, from Hamburg, Germany. On arrival the tanks were handled by stevedores from port partner Seaonus and loaded onto a specialty 26-axle trailer for transport to their permanent location on the terminal.

Owned by Eagle LNG, the tanks will provide greener, more environmentally friendly fuel to Crowley's Commitment Class ships, which are among the world's first combination Conro ships powered by LNG, under construction for the Puerto Rico trade lane, the first of which was launched last month, as reported here.
