USA’s first LNG bunker barge commences work

Conrad Industries has delivered Clean Jacksonville, the first LNG bunker barge built in North America. Clean Jacksonville was constructed in Orange at Conrad Orange Shipyard, a subsidiary of Conrad Industries, and the safe and successful gas trial execution took place in Port Fourchon.

The vessel will enter service for TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico in the Port of Jacksonville, where the vessel will bunker two Marlin-class container ships operating on LNG fuel between Jacksonville and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“It is the first LNG bunker barge built in North America. It is the first time the GTT membrane system has been installed in a non self-propelled barge in the U.S. It is the first time an LNG bunker mast of this type has been built. The list goes on,” said Mr. Johnny Conrad, President and CEO of Conrad Industries.
