Clean Energy Provides Fuel to First LNG-Powered Container Ships
Clean Energy Fuels recently supported General Dynamics (GD) NASSCO’s launch of the Isla Bella container ship, the first of its kind to operate on LNG fuel. Clean Energy provided bunkering services and fuel from its Boron, California, liquefaction plant for the GD NASSCO-built cargo ship, which was delivered to TOTE Maritime in San Diego. Clean Energy will also be providing bunkering services next month to the second GD NASSCO-built ship, the Perla Del Caribe.
“We applaud NASSCO and TOTE as world leaders in the introduction of the clean fuel to the commercial shipping industry,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy. “The use of natural gas is continuing to expand across the various transportation sectors and is the best choice economically and environmentally.”
