Eagle LNG to provide bunkering for Royal Caribbean Group’s cruise ships
Texas-based Eagle LNG Partners has entered into an agreement with cruise operator the Royal Caribbean Group for the provision of bunkering services for the latter’s LNG-fueled ships.
Eagle LNG will introduce multiple purpose-built LNG vessels equipped for marine bunkering and gas delivery throughout the Caribbean to support Royal Caribbean’s operations. The bunker supply vessels will be optimised for cruise ship bunkering with state-of-the-art distance keeping, hose handling, product conditioning, and mooring solutions.
The LNG supply will be sourced from Eagle LNG’s liquefaction facilities in Jacksonville, Florida. The facilities are designed for loading bunker vessels and LNG carriers for the Caribbean while maintaining economies of scale using modular liquefaction technology.
The facilities will also be capable of blending in renewable feedstocks to help customers in carbon reduction.
