Clean Energy bunkered world's first LNG-powered containership

California firm is to also supply the LNG-fuelled Perla Del Caribe next month.





Updated on 04 Nov 2015 11:57 GMT

Clean Energy Fuels Corp participated in a little history last month when it supported General Dynamics NASSCO's launch of the Isla Bella [pictured] container ship - the first of its kind to operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel.

Clean Energy provided bunkering services and fuel from its Boron, California, liquefaction plant for the NASSCO-built cargo ship, which was delivered to TOTE Maritime in San Diego.

The California-headquartered supplier has confirmed that it will also be providing bunkering services next month to the second NASSCO-built ship, the Perla Del Caribe.

In a statement, Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy, said: "As the maritime industry begins its transition to LNG, Clean Energy is able to bring our many years of fuelling services to ensure an easy and seamless transition. We applaud NASSCO and TOTE as world leaders in the introduction of the clean fuel to the commercial shipping industry. The use of natural gas is continuing to expand across the various transportation and is the best choice economically and environmentally."

Clean Energy added: "By using natural gas, these TOTE vessels will be the cleanest cargo-carrying ships in the world and equivalent to removing 15,700 vehicles from the road."
