“We are very pleased to have been selected by TOTE to supply their two new LNG container ships. We look forward to working with TOTE and WesPac to develop opportunities that help meet the growing demand for LNG as an alternative fuel solution in the Jacksonville area,” said Stephen Cittadine, president of Pivotal LNG, a subsidiary company of AGL Resources that owns and operates a merchant LNG facility and sells LNG wholesale to truck fleets and other high horsepower engine operators.
Moreover, WesPac is a private energy infrastructure company with several small LNG facilities under development in North America. Its LNG projects are focused on high-horsepower engine applications including oil-to-gas fuel switching in power plants, commercial ships, railroad locomotives and trucking.
In late 2012, TOTE Inc. announced plans to build the world’s first LNG-powered container ships at NASSCO in San Diego. “These ships will provide decades of reliable and environmentally superior service to the people of Puerto Rico,” said Peter Keller, EVP of TOTE and project lead for the TOTE LNG programs. “We are pleased to be partnering with Pivotal LNG and WesPac in this innovative LNG development and look forward to continuing to develop LNG as an alternative transportation fuel.”
